Update: Ruediger Denied Fight Due to Suspension

K-1, a mixed martial arts promotion that many casual fans may not be familiar with is planning on hosting a show at the 90,000 seat LA Coliseum in conjunction with Pro Elite’s Elite XC promotion. The problem is that the promotion hasn’t been granted a license to hold the event and only 1 fighter, former pro wrestler Brock Lesner, is cleared for the K-1 portion of the event entitled “Dynamite USA” according to the Fight Network.  Then the plot of the event thickens…

In a recent interview with our site former TUF 5 competitor Gabe Ruediger stated that he would be fighting soon with a large organization. This may have been the fight he was referring to although it is likely that he is still under contract with the UFC and may be competiting on The Ultimate Fighter 5 live finale in late June. The NSAC still lists Ruediger as under suspension and he is therefore unable to compete at the K-1 show.

Pro Elite currently has a promoters license for the event and its portion of the event way continue to be broadcast on Showtime but the event is just over a week away and the K-1 portion of the event is in serious jeopardy.
