Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud
After a successful event in Afghanistan, Wreck MMA will be returning home to Gatineau/Ottawa for its next event entitled Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud. The January 28th event, at the Casino de Lac-Leamy, will feature two UFC veterans and the top talent from the region.
Brought to you by GumDocs.com, the January 28th event at the Hilton Lac-Leamy, will be headlined by a UFC veteran facing one of the most popular and talented fighters from Ottawa. Alberta’s own Jason ‘Dooms’ Day will be facing FIT MMA’s Craig ‘Farmer’ Brown in a fight between a pair of Canada’s top middleweights. Day is looking to get on a winning streak and make it back to the UFC and Brown is looking to take that next step and follow in the footsteps of other Wreck fighters and compete on the world’s biggest stage. Both fighters leave everything in the cage and the winners of this bout are the fans who will be seeing one of the biggest fights in the region’s history!
In the co-main event, the first Ottawa fighter to compete in the UFC, returns home to showcase his skills in front of his home fans. Mark ‘Boots’ Holst returns to the Wreck cage following a stint in the UFC and this time he will take on one of the bad boys of MMA, Markhaile ‘Showtime’ Wedderburn. This feud has been brewing for a long time and the time has come to settle the score, once and for all. Either than personal satisfaction, this fight is important to both men as Holst is looking to get back to the UFC as quickly as possible and Wedderburn believes he can make a statement by beating a UFC veteran. The two muay-thai specialists are expected to go toe-to-toe as neither wants to leave any doubt on who is victorious.
In a battle between two accomplished welterweights, Nathan ‘Gunner’ Gunn will be making his Wreck debut against local talent Louis ‘The Joker’ Carle. Remi ‘Bam Bam’ Morvan will step into the cage against the exciting Speedy Gym product Dimitri Waardenburg; who despite his young age has a ton of MMA experience. Also on the card is a fight between two young up-and-coming lightweights with Rory McDonell facing London’s Jesse ‘The Body Snatcher’ Ronson.
A mainstay at all Wreck MMA events as the master of ceremonies, Robin Black will now be making his much anticipated Wreck debut at Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud. Black, the well known fighter, color commentator and Fight Network Analyst is prepared to face an undefeated prospect; Rockland’s Mike Reilly. When the possibility of fighting Black was brought to them, Reilly and his coaches jumped at the opportunity. Black’s goal will be to make Reilly regret that decision and come away with a victory, in what is rumored to be Black’s final MMA fight.
Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud is stacked from top to bottom with some of Canada’s most talented fighters. Scheduled to appear on the card are Stephane Bernadel, Ronin MMA’s Mustafa ‘Mufasa’ Khalil, Jeff Harrison, Peter Montrait, Aika Mateka, Jeffrey Laughren and many others!
