Waardenburg and Pelletier to Vie for Ringside Title


After two victories in 2011, Stephane Pelletier (4-1) will be challenging for the Ringside Bantamweight title in Quebec on June 4. His opponent for the newly minted belt will be Dimitri Waardenburg (7-4).

Pelletier has gone 4-0 in Ringside promotion fights going 2-0 in Ringside and then 2-0 in Rising Star. Along the way, Pelletier has beaten Francois Lacombe and others. His sole loss was to Mike Hong at Wreck MMA.

Pelletier’s opponent for Ringside 11, Dimitri Waardenburg, is coming off the biggest win of his career. In January, Dimitri defeated Remi Morvan at Wreck MMA. Waardenburg got off to a slow start to his career, but has since won the last five fights over the past year and a half including a victory over Chucky Mady. Waardenburg is also remembered for his round of the year performance against Eric Perez at CFC 2.

This is the first confirmed fight on the Quebec City card. Stay tuned to Top MMA News as more fights are announced.
