Clementi vs Clements Booked for Sarnia Dec 3rd
Chris Clements announced on Facebook that he will be fighting Rich Clementi in Sarnia on December 3rd on the Meltdown in the Valley card. Clements was originally set to face Forrest Petz, who had to pull out with an injury.
Rich Clementi (42-20-1) has had 10 UFC fights in his career going 5-5 in those contests. In his latest bout, Clementi submitted Ronnie Rogers. Previous to that fight, Clementi lost to Shinya Aoki, in Dream, and Reza Madadi, who is now on the the UFC roster. He will now try to make it two wins in a row against Clements.
Chris Clements (9-4) has been on a tear in his latest fights winning in spectacular fashion. He won the Ringside Welterweight title a year ago by knocking out Jonathan Goulet. Earlier this year, he defeated Travis Briere, the Unified MMA Welterweight champion, by Spinning Back Kick. Will ‘The Menace’ be able to continue his streak against a UFC veteran like Rich Clementi?
Interestingly enough, Clements last loss came at the hands of John Alessio, who is also on the card. Alessio will face Ryan Healy on the card. Also on the stacked card are top Canadian fighters John ‘Haggis Basher’ Fraser, Jesse Ronson, Ali Mokdad, and Misha Cirkunov.
Update: This matchup awaits commission approval.
