Aggression Returns to Winnipeg March 23; Brigham to Face Adams for Title
(AFC Press Release)
After a very successful debut in the MMA hungry city of Winnipeg Manitoba last September, the AFC will return with AFC 16 “Uprising” Saturday March 23 at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
This event will make history for Canadian MMA as for the first time one promotion will be hosting 2 events on the same night, as AFC 17 “Anarchy” will be taking place simultaneously in Edmonton AB. This one night fans will also see 2 new champions crowned in their respected main events. As well as multiple number one contender fights. With both events coming 1 week after AFC 15 “The Ides” March 15 in Calgary AB and with 14 scheduled events for 2013, the Aggression Fighting Championship is truly becoming an MMA juggernaut and the only national brand in the country.
This Winnipeg event will be headlined by AFC’s inaugural World Bantamweight Title Fight where Winnipeg’s own Curtis Brigham 11-5 takes on Kelowna’s Mike Adams 7-1 for the right to be crowned Champion. In the co-main event for the first time ever, Winnipeg fight fans will witness fellow Manitoban and recent UFC competitor Nick Penner 11-3 compete in his home province. Other local fighters appearing on the card are Louis Fisette 5-1, Jarod Milko 6-2, Chris Stranger 5-2, Lindsey Hawkes 7-7, Aaron Shmyr 4-2, Mark Durant 3-2, Dwight Sutherland 5-4, Cory Houston 4-3, Jon Henderson 2-2, Travis Gervais 2-0, Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz 2-0, Vyron Phillips 1-0.
With an estimated 12 fights on the card fans can expect to see the best fighters Canada has to offer. With our exciting up and coming talent with a mix of proven skilled veterans, this will make for a great night of fights brought to you for a reasonable price.
