Showtime Wedderburn Wins IQMMA Welterweight Belt
Iroquois MMA held its sixth card on November 22 in Ohsweken, Ontario. The card was headlined by a championship welterweight bout between Markhaile Wedderburn and Stephan Lamarche. This fight would answer a lot of questions as it was a rematch of a controversial bout that was held at Freedom Fights this past July. In that July match, Wedderburn was doing well and winning against Lamarche. While going for a triangle choke in the second round, the referee stopped the fight and awarded Wedderburn the victory when the choke was not fully sunk in.
This time in IQMMA, Stephan Lamarche lasted longer but the result was the same – a Markhaile Wedderburn victory. Wedderburn proved he was the better fighter and pulled out the unanimous decision victory. With the victory, Markhaile Wedderburn captured the Iroquois MMA Welterweight title.
