Undefeated Wright Returning to the Cage
After taking a year off from fighting to be with his new child, fans can expect Gary Wright to return to the cage this fall. Sources tell Top MMA News that Wright and manager/trainer David Lea have agreed to fight at Armageddon Fighting Championship 4 on November 6th in Victoria. Wright is an undefeated 8-0 and trains under Lea at Team Toshido – the home of UFC Welterweight Rory MacDonald.
For those who do not remember Wright, nicknamed “Evil Ginger”, he was ranked the #7 Welterweight in Canada in early 2009. He then decided to take some time off from competing in the sport after beating Elmer Waterhen in February 2009. Wright is 8-0 and has wins over the TJ Grant and Myles Merola among many others. Top MMA News is told that Wright will be fighting in the Lightweight division when he returns to action.
This is another great signing by the AFC who already have Nick Hinchliffe vs Mike Hackert and Graham Spencer vs Shawn Albrecht signed for AFC 4. There is no word of an opponent at this early date, but you can expect Top MMA News to bring you that news when it happens.
