Ryan Ford to Face Wedderburn at XMMA 9
Last December, Top MMA News brought you the news that the XMMA had signed Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford. Now, Top MMA News has learned that the former Maximum Fighting Championship fighter will be featured on XMMA’s July 18th card.
Matchmaker Joey Benoit has confirmed to Top MMA News that Ryan Ford will be fighting on XMMA 9: No Escape. Ford will be fighting Markhaile “Showtime” Wedderburn from Ontario’s Iron Tiger Muay Thai gym. Both fighters are coming off losses – Ford lost to Pat Healy in a MFC Welterweight title bout, while Wedderburn lost to Dan Grandmaison at XMMA 7.
Since leaving the MFC in a highly publicized split, Ford also signed with Edmonton’s TFC. Alberta’s Ford is rumoured to be fighting Alaska’s Dave Mazany on May 30th on a TFC7 card.
The XMMA 9 card is really taking shape as Dan Grandmaison, Pete Spratt, Gabe Ruediger, Fabio Holanda, Mark Hominick, Yves Jabouin, Jay Estrada, and Steve Claveau have already signed to fight on the card.
