Mein, Lorenz, Hill, Saggo are Canadian Warriors Coming to Global Warriors
Top MMA News has learned of some great Canadian fighters scheduled to fight on the August 13th Global Warriors card. Consider these matchups as tentative until the Ontario Athletic Commission gives their final approval.
One of the greatest Canadian warriors not signed to the UFC will be on the card – Jordan Mein is scheduled for the event. Although an opponent has not been named for Global Warriors, Mein has been running through big name opposition in his other Ontario bouts. First “Young Gun” knocked off Joe Riggs in Ottawa/Gatineau at WRECK MMA, then he beat Josh Burkman in Orillia, and in early June he beat DREAM champion Marius Zaromskis in Mississauga. Jordan (22-7) is ranked nationally at Welterweight and Middleweight and is 9-1 in his last 10 fights. Of course, any potential matchup with Mein must be approved by the Ontario Athletic Commission.
Another nationally ranked fighter, Adam Lorenz, is scheduled for the August 13th date in Hamilton. Saskatoon’s Lorenz will be taking on Ontario’s Lyndon Whitlock from Iron Tiger Muay Thai. Lorenz defeated former Bellator fighter William Romero earlier this year and now Romero’s Iron Tiger teammate Lyndon Whitlock hopes to avenge his training partner’s loss. Whitlock hopes his luck remains in Hamilton as he recently beat Robert Rende in the Slammer in the Hammer card held recently in Hamilton.
Whitlock’s teammate and Canada’s sixth ranked Bantamweight, Josh Hill, has previously been announced on the card. Now, Top MMA News has learned that Hill will face “Money” Mike Roberts (4-3-1), an opponent William
Romero beat to win the Iroquois MMA Featherweight title a few years ago.
Last, but not least, undefeated Canadian Lightweight Jason Saggo (5-0) is inching closer to the Canadian Top 10. After beating, Derek Boyle at MMA Live, Saggo will now face Adrenaline MMA’s Jesse Ronson (6-2) in a battle of up ‘n coming 155ers. After losing to Mike Ricci, Ronson bested Brandon Chagnon in Hamilton this month and looks to continue his winning ways.
Other fighters tentatively scheduled to appear include Shane Campbell (2-1), Josh Powell (4-1), Jason Gorny (4-5), Alan Wilson (1-0), Eric Attard (3-1) Ryan Dickson (0-0), Shawn Levesque (1-0),Troy Wilton (2-1) and Brett Biederman (1-2).
The event will be held at the Hamilton Place Theatre. If you are in the area, pick up a pair of tickets at Ticketmaster. This looks to be a solid card that MMA fans will not want to miss.
