WRECK is Unstoppable on May 6th
Wreck MMA is proud to announce additional details for Wreck MMA: Unstoppable on May 6th, 2011 at the Casino Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, Quebec. Presented by The Score, the event will be headlined by two of Canada’s top bantamweights who do battle for the Wreck Bantamweight Title. John ‘The Haggis Basher’ Fraser steps up to face Saskatoon’s undefeated prospect Eric Wilson. Fraser is on a four fight win streak and in his last fight he defeated the talented veteran Thierry Quenneville for a featherweight title. Wilson is coming off a win against rising star Roland Delorme that cemented him as one of the nation’s top bantamweights. A win against Fraser would put away any doubts whether Wilson is the real deal and firmly establish himself among the elite.
In the co-main event, Team Bushido’s Nabil ‘The Thrill’ Khatib returns to Wreck as he faces one of the bad boys of MMA, Markhaille ‘Showtime’ Wedderburn. Khatib’s last fight in Wreck ended controversially and Khatib is looking to leave no doubt with this one. Both fighters have shown a great deal of heart and expect this one to be a real test of will with the victor being the one who refuses to break. A win here by Khatib can put him in like for a title fight at the first ever event in Ottawa in September.
In the second title bout of the night, Jesse ‘The Ghost’ Gross returns to Wreck to face veteran Brad Cardinal for the Wreck Lightweight Title. This fight is Gross’ toughest challenge to date and will show where Gross stands among Canada’s top prospects. Cardinal has been around long enough to not be affected by the hype surrounding Gross and wants to leave Ottawa with some shiny new gold.
Wreck MMA is pleased to announce the addition of UFC Veteran Gideon Ray to the event in a featured bout of the evening. Ray has faced a who’s who of MMA veterans like David Loiseau, Mike Swick, John Alessio and Jason Macdonald. His opponent on this night is K1-Heros, Shooto and ZST veteran Sergej Juskevic. Making his Canadian debut, Juskevic (who lives in Toronto) is a former Lithuanian kickboxing champion with a solid ground game. After winning six of his last seven fights, Juskevic could potentially be the next breakout Canadian star.
Craig ‘Farmer’ Brown will step into the Wreck cage against the veteran Dan Chambers and Lindsey Hawkes will face Nathan ‘Gunner’ Gunn in a potential fight of the night candidate. Also scheduled to appear are OAMA standouts Jeff Harrison, Christopher St-Jean and Randy Turner alongside talented Ottawa based fighters. On the card are Tapout Gatineau’s Pablo Santos, RAMA’s Marc Lefebvre and Cedric Grenon, BTT Canada prospect and former member of the Canadian national judo team, Scott Edward.
Wreck MMA: Unstoppable is proud to be supporting the Ryan Williams Fund. The Ryan Williams Fund helps raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) to purchase new equipment. Wreck Promoter Nick Castiglia will also be returning to the MMA cage on this event and will be donating his purse to the Ryan Williams Fund.
