Third Time’s a Charm for Kent and Krahn… Barnier vs. Pelletier Also Set for ECC 15
After months of verbal battling on the Top MMA News message boards and two cancelled fights it seems Mike Kent and Cody Krahn are set to meet in the cage for a third time. MM-Eh.ca was first to report the bout which was confirmed moments later on Facebook by Kent. Kent and Krahn will do battle for the Middleweight Title at ECC 15 on February 15 also on that card will be a Bantamweight Title fight between Syd Barnier and Stephane Pelletier.
Mike Kent and Cody Krahn were scheduled to meet at both MFC 33 and MFC 34 but both times Kent was forced out due to recurring hand injuries. Kent took some time off to heal and took a fight at Light Heavyweight and showed that he can hang with the a top level opponent but ultimatly fell victim to a second round TKO at the hands of Tim Chemelli at Aggression FC 14. Prior to the loss, Kent steamrolled the competition on the east coast to the tune of an 8-0 record to open his professional career.
Cody Krahn was announced less than 48 hours ago as taking on Paul Grandbois at MFC 36, Although I’m hearing that Krahn never officially agreed on the fight. Krahn enters the Middleweight grudge match on the heels of a two fight losing streak at the hands of Sabah Fadai and Jason Zentgraf inside the MFC ring. Krahn is in a 2-4 stretch in his last six contests after winning nine of his first eleven bouts. Krahn has finished all 11 of his victories inside the opening round.
