Ringside 12 is Stacked
The Ringside MMA card going down October 21 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec keeps getting better and better and it’s not even complete yet. On the heels of the Ryan Ford versus Seth Baczynski Welterweight title match up, Top MMA News has learned of even more tasty, delicious match ups.
Top MMA News has finally been able to confirm the rumored tilt between Canada’s top 10 ranked Alex Garcia and perennial top contender Matt McGrath. Garcia will make his return to the cage after suffering his lone career loss to the aforementioned Seth Baczynski. MacGarth, like Garcia will also be looking to bounce back to the win column after being quickly submitted by Marcus Aurelio at MMA Live this past April. Top MMA News confirmed this match up with MacGrath’s manager Robin Black. Andy Cotterill of MM-eh.ca was the first to announce this match up.
Canada’s favorite Hockey pro turned MMA fighter Donald Brashear will finally get to test himself against real competition when he meets Bruno Hosier in the cage. Brashear who just made his MMA debut this month defeated an over matched Mathieu Bergeron via TKO with a flurry of hammer fists. Hosier a 4-2 heavyweight will have not fought in over a year when he steps into the cage with Brashear. Hosier last fight was an unimpressive retirement TKO loss to Ricardo Francois at MFL 3 in September of last year. Nic Landry of RDS.ca was the first to break this match up.
Canada’s number 8th ranked Lightweight Mike Ricci will finally get his shot at the Ringside MMA Lightweight championship. Ricci returned from a year long absence by defeating Jesse Ronson at Ringside’s previous outing to the Bell Centre this past April. Rumored opponents for Ricci are Jason Saggo and Jesse Gross. Andy Cotterill of MM-eh.ca was the first to announce Ricci’s participation.
Ringside MMA’s Bantamweight and Featherweight champions, Stephane Pelletier and Mitch Gagnon are also confirmed to be on the card as well. Team Gamma product Chris Franck is also confirmed to participate on the undercard.
There you have it folks, it’s possible we may see up to three Ringside titles defended on one fight card. For any fight fan within 500 km this is a must see event. Congrats to Eric Champoux and Joey Benoit for putting together such a stacked card. Only bad thing is, it’s only June and we’ll have to wait four months for this spectacular.
