TMN Breaks Down AFC, RITC Fights
No UFC this weekend, but there are two cards available on Saturday on Internet PPV. Rumble in the Cage 41 and Armageddon Fighting Championship 4 are both on November 6th. Why not split your computer screen and order both as you do not want to miss these fights.
The AFC 4 card is solid once again from top to bottom. Headlined with another appearance by Clay Davidson, AFC will pack Bear Mountain Arena and will be entertaining as usual. Matchmaker Darren Owen always has good matchups. Also appearing on the card are promoter fighter Jason Heit, Showtime Wedderburn, the tough Nick Hinchliffe, former CFLer Justin Shaw, and undefeated Mike Hackert. You can check out this PPV at GoFightLive.
Rumble in the Cage will hold their 41st show in their existence. The longest running promotion in Canada is doing something right. This card will be rocking with a match that is definitely the most intriguing fight of the night. Lethbridge Welterweight stud Jordan Mein will be taking on Lethbridge Middleweight king Chase Degenhardt to determine who is the MMA King of Lethbridge. As always, the event is a mix of amateur fighters and solid veterans. You can check out this PPV at GoFightLive.
On to the Break Down!
Robert Drysdale 3 vs Clay Davidson 1
The Abu Dhabi Absolute champion is taking on Team Toshido’s Clay Davidson for his second fight. Davidson is no joke as he is 5-1 but all his wins have come by submission. Drysdale will be better on the ground so look for Davidson to keep this one standing to see how the BJJ master can take a punch in the face.
Rempel – Drysdale over Davidson via Submission in Round 1
Grienke – Davidson over Drysdale by Decision. I think Davidson will be able to resist his every instinct to follow Drysdale to the ground and will keep it standing in this fight. David Lea will have drilled this into Davidson and the result will be a close decision win for Davidson. However, if Davidson willingly goes to the ground. Game over for Clay.
Wilson – Drysdale by submission nough said.
Drolet – Drysdale very easily by sub.
Jordan Mein 3 vs Chase Degenhardt 1
Who is the King of Lethbridge? Is it Jordan Mein, who has shown very good wrestling skills in his recent loss to Jason High and is an all around bad ass? Is it Chase Degenhardt who is an awesome Muay Thai striker who submitted his most recent opponent. What a great fight!
Drolet – Mein vs Degenhardt is a great fight that I’m having a hard time deciding on! Mein is best suited at 170, but he has a ton of
experience over Degenhardt. Degenhardt is moving up the ranks fast and is no slouch, so this is the best fight possible for Lethbridge
and the fans are the true winners. I’d have to go with Mein. But in a very entertaining and close fight.
Rempel – Mein over Degenhardt via Unanimous Decision
Wilson – I think Mein’s experience will be to much for Degenhardt’s size advantage. I see Mein pushing it too the later rounds and using his speed to take the decision win.
Grienke – The small RITC cage favors Mein and his strong takedown game, however, I think Degenhardt will be too big for Mein. Look for Mein to win round 1, but Degenhardt to win the second and third to take the decision.
Jason Heit 4 vs Markhaile Wedderburn 0
Heit is undefeated and a strong boxer. Wedderburn is a strong striker who has shown weakness on the ground lately losing his last three fights. If this one remains standing, watch out for the fireworks!
Wilson – Heit will take Wedderburn down control him, beat on him and submit him.
Grienke – Heit has better hands and better ground. Heit by TKO in Round 2.
Drolet – Has a promoter ever lost on his own show?
Rempel – Heit over Wedderburn via Submission in Round 2.
Nick Hinchliffe 4 vs Mike Hackert 0
Hinchliffe is a tough, tough dude with a ton of experience who lost at the last AFC show to Kalib Starnes. Hackert is a methodical, undefeated fighter who wins by maintaining top position and takes decision victories.
Rempel – Hinchliffe over Hackert via TKO in Round 1
Wilson – I see Hinchliffe coming out like a Mac truck and putting it on Hackert quick. If Hackert survives he’ll take the decision win. But I pick Hinchcliffe by first round TKO.
Drolet – Hinchliffe is on the rise, look for him to impress in this fight.
Grienke – Hinchliffe will be too strong and too experienced for Hackert to win. Look for Hackert to take this to the ground in the first but Hinchliffe to end it in the second via TKO.
Regardless of who you think will win, these are great fights. Top MMA News encourages you to buy some tickets and support your local promotion. If you can not get there live, watch it over the net.
