Elite 1: Collision Course – Weigh In Results


New Brunswick will be a story of firsts for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts  this weekend as Elite 1 will be hosting the first pro MMA in the province’s capital of Fredericton. It will also host its first crossover card as the event will also feature pro kickboxing.  Elite 1 owners Mike and Liette Williams have teamed up with Andy Young of Evolution Training Centre for the event titled Collision Course which will take place tomorrow night at the Grant Harvey Center.

The weigh ins happened at the arena  this afternoon which will feature three kickboxing bouts to start and will end with four MMA fights to finish off. One kickboxing fight was removed from the card after  Thomas Daiziel came in 10lbs overweight for his fight with Jason Brown.  After talking on the phone Mike Williams he said that Jason would not accept the fight.  Bounpaserth Phonsomsack also missed weight by 1.4lbs for his fight against Robert Lavoie but the fight will go on as planned. The New Brunswick Boxing Commission does allow for a fighter to be 1lb over for the agreed upon weight class

The main event will feature PEI’s Lenny Wheeler will try to stop a two fight losing streak as he faces Tristan Connelly who is riding a three fight winning streak. The Pro kickboxing portion of the card will be headlined by Elite 1 Middleweight Champ Bruno Lurette as he will take on Florida’s Leo Valdivia.   If you are in the Fredericton area tomorrow night and would like to see the event live tickets will be available at the Grant Harvey Centre Box office.  Thanks to Jowl Arseneault for the weigh in numbers, here are the results
