Official MFC 29 Card Announced

By:

Windsor, ON – S.L. Feldman & Associates (SLFA) is thrilled to announce the final lineup for MFC 29: Conquer at The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor on Friday, April 8 at 8 pm. In the night’s co-main events, two reigning MFC champions will put their titles on the line for the first time. Welterweight champion Douglas “The Phenom” Lima (17-4), one of the MFC’s brightest young stars, defends his crown against seasoned veteran “Dangerous” Terry Martin (21-8).

Lima, who fights out of Atlanta, Georgia, has won five straight matchups including his bid for the vacant title at MFC 27 when he scored a stunning third-round submission win over Jesse Juarez. Lima has an exceptional arsenal at his disposal, as he has shown outstanding submission skills but also a willingness to set strikes off like fireworks. He will face the heavy-handed Martin, whose lengthy resume is highlighted with knockout victories over Jorge Rivera and Ivan Salaverry.

In SLFA’s MFC 29: Conquer’s other title fight, Ryan “The Big Deal” Jimmo (14-1) defends his
MFC world light-heavyweight title as he takes on former champ, Emanuel “The Hardcore Kid” Newton (14-6-1).

Jimmo, who is originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and now fights out of Edmonton, Alberta, is currently riding one of the most impressive winning streaks in all of mixed martial arts. He has not lost since his professional debut and since then has racked up victories over such sport notables as Wilson Gouveia, Marvin Eastman, and Jesse Forbes. Jimmo, a precision tactician with dangerous striking ability, captured the 205-pound title at MFC 28 with a third-round TKO of Dwayne Lewis.

Newton will be looking to not only recapture his title but also gain a measure of revenge for a unanimous decision loss to Jimmo at MFC 23. The Long Beach, California, native claimed the MFC light-heavyweight title at MFC 19, with a decision win over Roger Hollett, but lost the crown to Trevor Prangley at MFC 21. An always rugged customer, Newton has shown a greater array of striking and submission skills of late to offset his wrestling talents.

In one lightweight matchup, MFC newcomer Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis (17-8), one of the truly treacherous strikers in mixed martial arts, squares off against frenzied hell-raiser Curtis “The Demon” Demarce (10-8). Davis, a native of Bangor, Maine, is a devastating power puncher, who sports an 11-fight winning streak on his resume that features wins over Forrest Petz, Shonie Carter, Paul Taylor, and Jess Liaudin. He’ll get all he can handle in Brandon, Manitoba’s Demarce who thrives on intense battles. Demarce was runner-up for the 2010 MFC Submission of the Year and narrowly missed out on a stunning upset in a wild tilt with Richie Whitson at MFC 28.

In the other standout lightweight tilt, veteran Hermes “The Unreal” Franca (20-11) takes on hard-hitting Robert “The Beast” Washington (9-2). Franca, who trains in Orlando, Florida, will make his long-awaited MFC debut, and the Brazilian has an accomplished track record with wins over Marcus Aurelio, Spencer Fisher, and Nate Diaz. Washington, who steps in to replace injured Drew Fickett, began his career with an eight-fight winning streak and holds five knockouts on his resume. The East St. Louis, Illinois, product, who is a former U.S. Navy petty officer, dropped a narrow split-decision verdict to Tyrone Glover at MFC 27 in his organizational debut.

These two full-throttle lightweight fights are sure to be rivals for the “Fight of the Night”, but both have the potential to become the MFC “Fight of the Year” as well.

Two veteran welterweights will meet in another main-card battle at SLFA’s MFC 29: Conquer, when Pete “The Secret Weapon” Spratt (21-19) takes on Demi Deeds (15-8). Spratt is a well-respected veteran from San Antonio, Texas, with lightning-quick strikes which he demonstrated in his 2009 MFC Knockout of the Year performance against Nathan Gunn. Opposing him will be Deeds, who fights out of Des Moines, Iowa, and has managed 14 finishes in 15 victories.

The HDNet Fights-televised main card will open with a standoff between two young middleweight prospects as Andreas “The Sweet Swede” Spang (4-0) meets home-town hero Ali “The Monster” Mokdad (3-0). Spang, who is originally from Sweden but now fights out of Las Vegas, is one of the MFC’s newest finds, while Mokdad will have his supporters from Windsor, Ontario, backing him.

The undercard of SLFA’s MFC 29: Conquer will feature several fighters from Southern Ontario. In the most prominent matchup; Windsor, Ontario’s own Josh Taveirne will take on Atlanta’s Dhiego Lima, the younger brother of MFC welterweight champ Douglas Lima.

Remaining fights on the undercard are:
David Bo Harris vs. Chuck Mady, bantamweight
Pete Brown vs. Matt Spizak, lightweight
Ben Jamieson vs. Brent Franczuz, bantamweight

** Fight Card subject to change and OAC approval**

    Interesting….

    It does not read like a Scott Zerr press release either. Never heard of a few of those nicknames either. Pretty shallow card all in all.

    Mady is a joke. Watching him interact with people at the trials and then getting to watch him flop around on the mat like a fish out of water was simply amazing.

    LOL at Owen Carr walking around with his EFC belt. I’m sure Dana White was soooooo impressed by it.I bet he’d be even more impressed that Carr earned the belt by kneeing Marc in the nuts.

    LOL, Jake we are workin on a very busy second half of the year, I promise no more disappointments.
    As for Chuckles Lady, I’m sure that if she wins this fight she’ll be picked up rightaway by the UFC. I’m sure Lorenzo and Dana could use a backstage fluffer.
