Hinchliffe Signs MFC Contract to Face Lima


The Juggernaut Signs with the MFC

A head-on clash between two exciting welterweights has been added to the main card of MFC 34: Total Recall.

Top prospect Dhiego “Maluco” Lima (6-2) will battle newly signed Nick “The Juggernaut” Hinchliffe (19-8) in a matchup that could potentially set up the next leading contender to challenge reigning MFC welterweight champ Nathan “Soul Force” Coy.

The Lima-Hinchliffe tilt will be featured on the AXS TV (the soon-to-be re-branded HDNet) airing live from the Mayfield Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, on Friday, August 10. Headlined by the MFC lightweight showdown between Adam Lynn and Mukai Maromo, MFC 34: Total Recall will launch at 10 p.m. ET/8 p.m. MT/7 p.m. PT (check local listings for channel designation). The event will also air on TSN2 on a tape-delay basis.

A native of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Hinchliffe, who signed a multi-fight deal with the Maximum Fighting Championship, has won four of his last six bouts including victories over Bastien Huveneers, Ryan Machan, and Mike Hackert. Amongst his most notable career wins are verdicts over Anderson Goncalves, Travis Galbraith, and Craig Brown.

Hinchliffe began his career in 2006 with a nine-fight winning streak, and has chalked up seven wins via knockout and seven by submission. Of his 19 wins, 11 have come inside the opening round.

Lima, who fights out of Atlanta, Georgia, opened his MFC run with three convincing victories including a pair of knockouts coming over Bill Fraser (MFC 27) and Jamie Toney (MFC 30). The Brazilian-born Lima also registered a third-round submission win over Josh Taveirne at MFC 29.

The 22-year-old, who recently opened ATT Gwinnett just outside Atlanta, is coming off a decision loss to Coy at MFC 32.
