Alessio to Take on Mazany in Hometown Main Event


It was recently announced that John Alessio (34-16) had signed with Aggression Fighting Championship.  Now we know who the Victoria, British Columbia native’s main event opponent will be for Aggression FC 13 on November 3.

Dave Mazany (10-4) will be the fighter trying to upset Alessio in his hometown return.  Mazany has been on a roll in his MMA career lately.  The Wand Fight Team member has won six of his last seven fights, including a win over Shane Campell in a previous Aggression MMA appearance.

Alessio has not fought in Victoria since 1998 when he beat Derek McClinton and Mike Headley on the same card.  Alessio, who has trained with AFC promoter Jason Heit (4-0) will be fighting for the first time since his fights with Mark Bocek and Shane Roller in the UFC.

Alessio and Mazany are expected to be joined on the AFC 13 card with Diego Wilson, Tristan Connelly, David Perron, and Dan MacIver.

    Good fight but just to prove my point Mazany is managed by AFC announcers I would say a conflict of interest but either way a great fight,

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 8

    Does having the announcer on your side give you an unfair advantage?

  4. Well Alessio is friends with Jason Heit and has trained with him over the years, so it nullifies the Dean Panas relationship with Mazany.

    I guess if Dean was announcing the fight he could try to throw John off by calling him the “Unnatural” or something but he won’t be announcing these fights. I don’t really see how there’s any advantage or disadvantage for either guy.

    Did I say it was an unfair advantage? Just stating the facts it’s all in house if you want on an aft event have dean manage you,

    Idolmaker maybe you can sit next to dean when he announces I heard you were a profession wood worker, and pretty crafty with your hands. Well that’s what Quinn was saying,

    I really looked at this fight an Mazany is tough but not ready for this fight to big of a step up for him way to keep feeding your guys Dean understand why AFC keeps you around Deano, lol

    Mazany could win this as John struggles with ground guys controlling him.

    Funny thing the two guys train in Vegas just blacks from each other and they will fly to Victoria to battle.

    All in all Dean situation is like this really managers never get good press. If you want to be a manager it comes with the territory unfortunately guys n ladies.

    No conflict of interest whatsoever, as long as dean can stay absolutely unbiased. Something he has struggled with in the past.
