Aina-Evangelista to headline May 15 'ShoMMA' event

Mike Aina (11-6-1) will take on Billy Evangelista (9-0) in the main event of the first installment of "ShoMMA: Strikeforce Challengers," happening Friday, May 15 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.

Kim Couture (1-1) will fight on the card against an opponent to be determined.

"ShoMMA" serves as a showcase for Strikeforce up and comers the way "ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series" highlighted prospects for the now-defunct organization. "ShoXC" was the mixed martial arts version of the "ShoBox" boxing cards on the network.
