A dynamite battle is set for Xcessive Force FC 8: Festival of Fists on December 11 in Grande Prairie, Alberta. UFC Veteran Jesse “The Body Snatcher Ronson” will take on Stephen “Big Bad” Beaumont.  Although both fighters usually fight in the Lightweight division, this bout will be contested at 170lbs.

XFFC President Darren Cliffe confirmed this fight today to Top MMA News and talked about his excitement:

“I’m very excited about the Ronson vs Beaumont fight. Not just as a promoter, but as a fan as well. I am also excited for the MMA Super Fans of Grande Prairie that get to see such an epic fight. I have talked to Jesse a few times about trying to get him in the XFFC Cage, but finding him an opponent has been an issue. So to have Stephen step up is huge and he deserves a lot of credit. So on December 11th at the “Festival of Fists” in Grande Prairie, The Body Snatcher and Big Bad are going to throw down in what I expect to be one of the most exciting fights of the year.”

Jesse Ronson who fights out of the Adrenaline Training Centre in London, Ontario will fight on Canadian soil for the first time in over a year as his last two fights have taken place in Abu Dhabi. Ronson picked up a beautiful submission victory via Brabo Choke over Gadji Zaipulaev but was unable to follow up with another win when he dropped a Unanimous Decision to Alexander Sarnavskiy, arguable the #2 Lightweight outside the big 3 of UFC, Bellator and WSOF behind only Shinya Aoki. When asked about this fight, here’s what Ronson had to say:

It was about time someone in Canada stepped up and fought me. Glad it was him. I like Beaumont, he comes to fight. Although I know all he’s going to do is try and wrestle me. A fight’s a fight and I’m still gonna knock his ass out.

Stephen Beaumont enters the bout having alternated wins and losses in his last four fights. Beaumont, a product of Hayabusa Training Centre in St. Albert, Alberta finished Tim Jenson and picked up a decision victory over Jose Rodriguez while losing by first round submission to Shane Campbell and Jason Saggo, both of whom have since moved on to the UFC. Beaumont kept it short and sweet regarding his impending bout with Ronson:

It is with hard work and fearless determination that I will achieve my goal.

Xcessive Force Fighting Championship 8: Festival of Fists goes down from the Entrec Centre in Grande Praire, Alberta on December 11 and will also feature a women’s Strawweight bout between Alyssa Krahn and Jessica Maruszczak and a Light Heavyweight battle between William Carriere and Steve Roy.

    Ronson vs Beaumont.

    Look for Mciness to be outside the cage working as a MMA commentator while REAL fighters like Ronson and Beaumont throw down.

    Mciness should stick to MMA commentary. Wouldnt want him to get grazed in the eye again.
