The main event of the night will be a light heavyweight rematch between Poai Suganuma and Jared Hammen. The two fighters sport identical records (9-1) after Suganuma handed Hamman his first career loss in a 15-second knockout (flying knee) at an April SHO XC event.
For Elite XC, this event is expected to inject some much needed buzz into the 205-pound division. Brazilian Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante is widely considered the kingpin of the promotion's light heavyweight class, but company executives are hoping a star or two will emerge from this event as a likely opponent for Feijao in the company's first division title fight sometime in the near future.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the main card action tomorrow night (Friday, August 15), which is slated to begin at 11 p.m. ET on Showtime from the aforementioned Table Mountain Casino.
Of course, the latest quick updates of the prelim bouts will begin to flow earlier than that at around 9 p.m. ET.
See you then!
