Aggression MMA Announces June 10th Show


Aggression MMA LogoAggression MMA LogoEdmonton, Alberta (Canada): Aggression MMA, Edmonton’s top fight promotion, today announced its next fight event, “Confrontation,” which will feature a main event between nationally-ranked welterweight stars Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (14-3) and Nick “Juggernaut” Hinchliffe (18-7). This highly-anticipated event will take place Friday, June 10th, at the Shaw Conference Center in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. “Confrontation” will also showcase two-time world Muay Thai champion Shane “Shaolin” Campbell (4-1), submission wizard Luke Harris (6-1), and the MMA debut of world Muay Thai champion Levi Kump. More details will be announced shortly.

General admission tickets for “Confrontation” are now on sale, and are priced at $60. Limited floor seats are available for $100, $150, and $200. Tickets are available at or via email at Fans can also call (780) 426-SOLD.

Due to a venue scheduling conflict, “Confrontation” will not be broadcasted on The Score Television Network as part of The Score Fighting Series, as was its previous event, “Punishment.” The Score is a national specialty television channel providing sports news, information, highlights and live event programming in more than 6.8 million homes across Canada.

Despite the scheduling situation, Aggression MMA decided to hold a show for the benefit of its loyal fighters. “We could have taken the low road and postponed our event until the fall, but we felt we had an obligation to our fans and loyal fighters to follow up our last event with an even more entertaining card,” explained Aggression co-owner Moin Mirza. “We are confident that ‘Confrontation’ is going to be an incredible event.”

A multi-time veteran of The Fight Club, a Canadian fight promotion recently acquired by Aggression, “The Real Deal” has defeated UFC veterans Pete Spratt (twice) and CJ Fernandes, and has faced current Strikeforce combatant Pat “Bam Bam” Healy. Many consider Ford to be the top contender for the spot of Canada’s next breakout welterweight, following in the footsteps of current UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre. With thirteen finishes in his fourteen wins, he is on the cusp of true superstar status, and is hungry to prove that he belongs amongst the elite of the North American fight scene.

“All I gotta say is that Nick better step his game up from his last few fights, cause I’m on a whole different level than any fighter he’s fought,” stated “The Real Deal.” “Everything that I bring to the fight…he won’t be able to handle it. So, bottom line, he ain’t G’d up, so he’s gettin’ beat up.”

Standing in Ford’s way at “Confrontation” will be Nick Hinchliffe, an experienced 170-pounder who has won five of his last seven bouts. He has faced Canadian MMA stars such as current UFC welterweight Rory MacDonald, Kalib Starnes, Travis Galbraith, Victor Valimaki, and Ryan Machan. The Team Impact product was very active in 2010, competing six times. In his last appearance, he defeated Machan via majority decision. He’ll now face Ford with much at stake.

In addition to the aforementioned combatants, “Confrontation” will present regular highlight reel inhabitants Jason Gorny (4-4), UFC veteran Victor “The Matrix” Valamaki (16-8), Steve Beaumont (2-0) and ex-Canadian Football League star, Rio Wells (4-1). The full fight card will be announced shortly

    As a fan and someone who has friends fighting on both cards, Its pretty frustrating they are making me choose between Aggression and MFC. Is it that hard to move the show back a week?

  3. As another promotion stated in one of their press releases there are very few good venues in the city and Aggression believes the shaw is the best right now. Our date has actually been booked for quite some time and our hand was forced to do the show June 10th. Joker, do you know me? why would you call me a loser its hurtful. Anyways, come support your local up and coming talent at Aggression MMA, June 10th at the shaw conf ctr. We will be back in our amazing 30ft cage.

    joker45 = Mark Pavelich.

    He is but hurt that his card is falling apart and he has to use a venue that held the Heat shows and is about a half step up from a barn.

    Blame him for putting on a second show on the same night, not Aggression.

    I hate how promotions in the same city want to battle it out for attendance.

    Guy should just focus on putting on a good show, not constantly try to be the better than anyone else. The fans will appreciate the show that thinks about them, not their competition.

    Looking forward to this card, ford vs Hinchliffe is a solid match-up…. I say a 50/50 fight…

    Nick has gone to decision in his last three outtings though, he’s going to have to pick it up against Ford.

    Will there be an IPPV for this show since it won’t be on TV?

    I didn’t think the commission would allow two shows on the same night in the same jurisdiction!

    Pavelich stopped commenting as “Johnny Vegas” right after I messaged him on Facebook telling him to grow a pair and use his real name on here. He hasn’t used “Johnny Vegas” since so perhaps he’s found a new alias to hide behind.

    I am going DVR MFC and prop go to Aggression, I like MFC but a lot of cases they lack local fighters to really go support. Aggression always has friends on it so I will pick that.

    only beef lately is a lot of Edmonton shows have bumped up ticket price to 60 bucks, like Unified and just sucks to pay that much.

    Unified is way too bush league to pay $60! Especially with guys like Payne struggling to put away some kid fresh off the rez. Aggression is decent so i dont mind paying a lil more.

    I am 100% behind suppporting the local fighters. If i was an Edmonton fan I would do the same and PVR MFC (also because you CAN PVR MFC and not any other Edmonton shows) and go out and support my local buddies….

    I just really don’t understand why Pav doesn’t just get over the fact that there are other shows, and they are going to be successful. He has a sweet live TV deal where he can bring in nice sponsor cash. He doesn’t need to bring in as many high profile names (some of which probably aren’t worth the amount he pays them). Seriously, why not let the other local shows bring up quality fighters from within Canada, then bring them over and be the big dog that he loves to be…. Other promoters would then respect him much more, fans would get to watch their buddies at the local shows and their heroes at his show, and their would be no BS…???

    He claims to be the number 2 promo in the world, this could be possible if he just allowed himself to sit back and let things happen naturally. I would consider MFC a bigger better show if he recognized other promotions exist and that they can benefit from their shows…

    I love how this thread relates more to promoters bickering than it does to the fights announced. Good fights are 100x better than arguing about who’s dick is bigger. It’s really too bad when politics get more attention than the actual event.
