EliteXC has announced the full card for the next upcoming edition of ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series, which will take place on August 15th at the Table Mountain Casino in Friant, California. The televised main card will air on Showtime starting at 11 PM ET.
The show’s main event features a rematch between rising light heavyweights Poai Suganuma and Jared Hamman. The first bout between the two in April ended in controversy after Suganuma knocked Hamman down with a flying knee. Referee Jon Schorle quickly waved off the bout but Hamman immediately got back to his feet and began protested, forcing then company figurehead Gary Shaw to guarantee a rematch between the two.
Additional featured fights on the card include Fabricio Camoes against “Ultimate Fighter” cast member Sam Morgan and the EliteXC debut of PRIDE veteran Cyrille Diabate as he takes on ShoXC veteran Jaime Fletcher.
The complete card for the event:
Jared Hamman vs. Poai Suganuma
