New WRECK Mein Event Announced
With the previous WRECK main event between ‘Farmer’ Brown and Shonie Carter being scrapped, Top MMA News knew that WRECK was looking for a replacement main event. Now sources close to the fight are telling Top MMA News that Jordan Mein will return to Ottawa/Gatineau to face Gideon Ray on May 6th.
Jordan Mein will return to the place where he began his red hot 2011 season. Fans will remember that Mein main evented WRECK: Strong and Proud against Joe Riggs. Mein raised a lot of eyebrows when Mein dominated the much heavier Riggs and stopped the UFC veteran in the second round.
Since that WRECK victory in January, Mein went on to defeat the previously unbeaten Keto Allen in 42 seconds. Jordan then moved on to Ontario’s first MMA card where he defeated another former UFCer, Josh Burkman, in the main event.
Mein will be facing his third former UFCer in 2011 when he takes on Gideon Ray on May 6th. Ray is 17-12 in his career and has faced fighters such as Mike Swick, Charles McCarthy, and David Loiseau in the UFC.
This fight joins a stacked WRECK card that already features two title fights as John Fraser takes on Eric Wilson and Brad Cardinal fights Jesse Gross.
