Maximum Fighting Championship officials recently revealed the
new additions to the Canadian promotion’s upcoming card, which
takes place Feb. 15 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton,
Alberta. The show is headlined by a lightweight title tilt between
Maromo and Graham
Spencer, and the evening’s main draw airs live on AXS TV. A
third middleweight showdown will also take place at the event
during the preliminary card, as Paul
Grandbois faces Cody Krahn in
a clash of local talents.
“The MFC really started to produce exceptional talent in the
middleweight division in 2012, and these two fights -- part of our
first show in 2013 -- are a direct result of that talent influx,”
said MFC boss Mark Pavelich in the official release. “There was a
huge level of excitement around the MMA world when we signed
Silva, and immediately Jacen Flynn
jumped at the opportunity because he wants to prove he’s much
better than when we saw last time out.”
Silva makes his MFC debut against Flynn, who was finished in just
99 seconds in his promotional foray back in August. The defeat
snapped a four-fight winning streak for Flynn, who owns nine of his
10 career victories by submission. In Silva, Flynn faces a UFC and
Bellator veteran who has won three of his last five outings. The
31-year-old was outpointed in his most recent in-cage appearance,
however, falling by majority decision to Michal
Materla at KSW 19 on May 12.
