All fighters on tonight’s ShoXC card live on Showtime have been weighed in and are ready for battle. The main event of tonight’s card features a rematch from a previous ShoXC fight between Jared Hamman and Poai Suganuma . The bout ended somewhat controversially and had many asking for a rematch. In their first fight Suganuma landed a hard overhand right just seconds into the bout, which he followed with a devastating flying knee that left Hamman crumpled on the canvas. The referee stepped in quickly only to have Hamman jump to his feet protesting what seemed like a questionable stoppage. This fight should bring some closure between the potential stars and answer some questions as to which man just may be poised for the limelight.

The rest of the card is stacked with up and coming fighters that are set to make their names in the sport. Keith “KO Kid” Berry is a twenty year old power punching phenom that trains out of Team Xtreme Couture and  is set to fight on CBS if he can get past the tough and experienced Ray Lizama. Cyrille “The Snake” Diabate is widely regarded as one of the premier strikers in all of mixed martial arts but has never fought in the United States. All of that will change tonight as Diabate looks to have an impressive performance against a well-rounded Jaime Fletcher.  Other fights on the card include Fabricio “Morango” Camoes facing off with Sam “The Squeeze” Morgan and Debi Purcell fighting Rosi Sexton in a battle of the female standouts.
