The EliteXC has revealed their fight card for the March 21st ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series – the fifth installment in the series. In the top fight, kickboxing champ Malaipet “The Diamond” Sitprapom – who has very limited MMA experience – will battle Thomas Denny. Here’s what the Muay Thai specialist Sitprapom had to say:

“I started watching MMA when I got to the U.S. and liked what I saw,’” said Sitprapom. “I respect both Muay Thai and MMA. I am still learning, but I feel I have what it takes to make it in MMA.”

Thomas “Wildman” Denny is 25-16 and last fought in a losing effort by KO to Joe Camacho seven weeks ago. Denny will want this one to go to the ground because a stand-up fight against Sitprapom is not where he wants to be. Denny has 14 submissions in his 25 wins, opposed to 7 KO’s. He has spent much of his career as a King of the Cage brawler and endured a five-fight losing streak from 1999-2001 to piece together a solid career. To his advantage against a striker like Sitprapom, Denny has only been knocked out twice in his 16 losses.
