MFC Comes to TSN
Mark Pavelich made a big announcement for his organization and for Canadian MMA fans at the Maximum Fighting Championship MFC 31 press conference today. The MFC president stated that MFC had signed a one year deal with TSN/TSN2. Pavelich also announced that MFC 31: The Rundown will be the first MFC that will air on TSN/TSN2 in HD. Fans can expect MFC 31 to be rebroadcast on TSN2 in mid- to late-November. Further details will be provided on Friday by TSN & the MFC.
In other press conference news, Scott Zerr stated that in a “stacked Lightweight division”, the winner of the Mukai Maromo vs Sabah Fadai bout may likely get a shot at the MFC Lightweight Title. Zerr also mentioned that the current Lightweight Title situation is set to be resolved with Brian Cobb taking on Antonio McKee in January. “Ragin” Kajan Johnson and Richie “Hellboy” Whitson are both excited to return to the cage after layoffs due to injury and are both looking to bring a battle to the cage. Ryan “The Big Deal” Jimmo – who defends his Light Heavyweight belt against Thierry Sokoudjou- simply had one thing to say: “I can’t wait to fight on Friday night”.
