Canadian prospect Jordan Mein
will face UFC veteran Forrest Petz
in the welterweight main event of
Score Fighting Series 7, promotion officials announced
The Nov. 23 event takes place at Hamilton Place Theatre in
Hamilton, Ontario, and airs live on AXS TV in the United States and
theScore Television Network in Canada. In addition to the
headlining combatants, SFS vets “Gentleman” Josh Hill,
Ronson, Will Romero,
Ricci and Ryan
Dickson are also expected to compete on the card.
Mein, 23, has won seven of his last eight fights, with only a
defeat to Tyron
Woodley blemishing his record in that span. The Canadian
competed twice under the Strikeforce banner this year, rebounding
from his Jan. 7 split decision loss to Woodley by outpointing
Stinson in his most recent bout on July 14 at “Rockhold vs.
Kennedy.” Known for his tight boxing attack, “Young Guns” has
finished 20 of his 25 career victims and has been knocked out just
once in his six years as a pro.
Petz, meanwhile, has won four straight fights since a pair of
defeats to Brian
Foster and Daniel
Roberts netted him his UFC release. “The Meat Cleaver” fought
thrice last year, outpointing Herbert
Goodman before earning technical knockouts over onetime Octagon
talent John Kolosci
and Bellator vet Rudy Bears.
The 37-year-old last competed on March 16 at SFS 4, stopping
Juskevic with punches in the second round.
