Kickboxing professionally in Thailand since he was 8, Malaipet moved to America in 2001 for new fight opportunities, which eventually led to him competing in mixed martial arts in Aug. 2006. Malaipet resides in Upland, Calif., where he teaches Muay Thai at Team Diamond.
Malaipet (3-2) headlined the ShoXC in March but lost via disqualification for delivering illegal elbows to avoid being taken down by Thomas "Wildman" Denny.
Douglas (3-1) has won both his EliteXC fights via TKO in a combined time of 1 minute and 24 seconds.
