10 Bouts Set for Discipline MMA in Belleville
The main card will feature several names familiar to Ontario MMA fans, including Joel Powell and Misha Cirkunov, whose fights will close out the monumental show.
Powell, a heavy-handed Hamilton native who competed at the 2001 world wrestling championships, will headline the event opposite BJJ ace and Team Nogueira product, Fabio Moraes – a Brazil native who will make his North American debut on the card. The fight could easily end early for either man or make for a back-and-forth battle of attrition. Either way, the winner will be the fans in attendance who will get to see these two rising talents before they make it to a bigger stage.
The co-main event will see Toronto-based grappling phenom Cirkunov match mettle with Caleb Grummet – a reputable wrestler with professional boxing experience. Both combatants fight to finish, but can go the distance if necessary.
Rounding out the main card will be up-and-coming star and former Olympian Ainsley Robinson versus durable Eric Attard, Daniel Ireland versus Tim Chessell in a classic Belleville versus North Bay grudge match, a Canada versus USA pairing between Sudbury native Anna Barone and American Ashley Sanchez, and a barnburner in the making between fellow Ontario sluggers Denis Puric and Daryle Pinter.
Five dollars from the proceeds from each ticket sold will go to The Repatriation Memorial Highway of Heroes Fund.
