Scheduled to fight on the undercard of Frank Shamrock's showdown against Phil Baroni, Rua was a week away from facing Joey Villasenor for the vacant EliteXC 185-pound crown. A replacement for "Ninja" will be announced "very soon," said EliteXC's Gary Shaw, who is promoting in conjunction with Strikeforce."
