Thomas Denny has agreed to fight Nick Diaz at EliteXC “Unfinished Business” on July 26th, according to Sherdog.com.
The event will be held in Diaz’s hometown of Stockton, California at the Stockton Arena and will air live on CBS at 9pm ET. Two EliteXC titles will be up for grabs at the event as champion Robbie Lawler takes on Scott Smith in a rematch from EliteXC “Primetime” for the promotion’s middleweight title and Jake Shields will face Nick Thompson for the newly-created EliteXC welterweight championship.
Denny (26-16), a former King of the Cage champion, has won four of his last five bouts. He was last in action in March, defeating Malaipet in his EliteXC debut via disqualification due to illegal elbows.
Diaz (17-7), a WEC, PRIDE, and UFC veteran, has won six of his last eight bouts. His recent wins include an EliteXC debut victory over Mike Aina, a DREAM debut TKO win over Katsuya Inoue, and, most recently, a third-round TKO of Mushin Corbbrey at a June 14th EliteXC event.
