Main Event Change for WRECK
Due to some unforseen circumstances, the main event for Friday August 20th’s Wreck MMA: Bad Intentions has been changed. Wreck MMA and FitShop.ca are excited to announce that Markhaile ‘Showtime’ Wedderburn will be making his Wreck debut against the talented striker from Drummondville, Martin ‘The Hammer’ Grandmont.
Showtime is known as one of the most controversial welterweights in Canada, but his talent and willingness to face the country’s best cannot to be forgotten. An excellent stand-up fighter who has shown flashes of brilliance on the ground, Showtime is coming back to Gatineau to entertain the fans. Grandmont is one of the best strikers in Canada and put those skills on display on many occasions throughout his MMA career. In his last trip to Gatineau, Grandmont KOed Ottawa’s own and UFC veteran, Mark ‘Boots’ Holst in dramatic fashion. Holst moved past the loss and into the UFC but Grandmont believes he deserves an opportunity in the biggest show in the world and is coming back to the place of his biggest victory to prove it. These two fighters are known for their exciting fights and a war is promised on August 20th.
In the co-main event of the evening, OAMA’s Stephane Bernadel once again fights in front of his home fans against one of the top prospects in eastern Canada, Jon ‘Judo’ Williams. Bernadel is one of the top strikers in the featherweight division and Williams is a talented grappler under Dana Dickeson and a member of BTT Canada. A classic striker vs. grappler battle, this fight will not make it to the judges as one of the two will ultimately impose their will.
In the tradition of supporting local causes, Wreck MMA will be supporting the Ottawa Food Bank at Wreck MMA: Bad Intentions. Many of the local martial arts gyms in Ottawa/Gatineau (including NX Martial Arts, 100% Martial Arts, Ottawa Japan Karate, N-1 Thai Boxing, and OAMA) will be collecting non-perishable food items and the gym that collects the most will be announced at the event. Also, the Ottawa Food Bank will be collecting other non-perishable food items at the event as well.
