Despite
previous reports that EliteXC middleweight fighter Scott Smith broke his foot
during his bout with href="mailto:http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/templates/topten.asp%3Farticleid=14%26zoneid=15">Robbie
Lawler last Saturday night, MMAWeekly.com
has confirmed that he suffered no break and will not miss any time with an
injury.

 

Smith
confirmed the news himself when he appeared on href="http://www.mmaweekly.com/radio.asp">MMAWeekly Radio Wednesday night.

 

“I got
x-rays yesterday, no breaks, no cracks, nothing. My foot’s good to go,” he stated.

 

After the
fight ended, Smith limped to the post fight press conference and, at the time,
he thought he was dealing with a broken foot, but upon further examination the
injury will heal up fairly quickly.

 

“The night
of the fight, I could barely walk on it. By the next day I was walking pretty
good, and I’m completely walking normal now,” said Smith. “It’s black and blue
all the way above my ankle and pretty swollen, but the doctor said no breaks,
so he just said, ‘quit kicking people in the elbow.'”

 

Following
an epic fight with Lawler at the first ever CBS-EliteXC Saturday Night Fights
card, Smith says he will take a week off to spend some time with his children
and then he will head back into the gym to prepare for his rematch with the
champion.

 

While no
official announcement has been made, EliteXC Live Events President Gary Shaw
mentioned that the next CBS show would likely take place in late summer or
early fall, and Smith believes he and Lawler will be the headline fight.

 

“They said
for sure we’re rematching, we’ll be a main event at a CBS card type thing. It
will be good,” he commented. “September, October is what I’m told.”

 

After a
brief break from action, Smith also said he would be traveling to Thailand to
train and get ready for his rematch with Lawler where he hopes this time to go
home as the new EliteXC middleweight champion.
