In addition to a previously announced welterweight headliner between Forrest Petz and Jordan Mein, the Nov. 23 event will also see the unbeaten “Gentleman” Josh Hill collide with former World Extreme Cagefighting talent Rafael Rebello in the co-main event. Ryan Healy will also square off with Jesse Ronson at the event, which takes place at the Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario, and features three-time Bellator vet Will Romero and once-beaten Alex Ricci taking on Tristan Johnson and Kevin Morin, respectively. Ryan Dickson and Brandt Dewsbury will clash to kick off the six-fight main card, which airs on The Score in Canada and AXS TV in the United States.
Perfect through nine pro outings, Hill, 25, has competed for the SFS three times thus far, most recently outpointing John Fraser at SFS 5 on Aug. 25. Meanwhile, Rebello has won three straight since receiving his WEC release in 2010 and was last seen submitting Bobby Huron with an arm-triangle choke on June 16 under the Battle Xtreme Championship banner.
A 10-year pro, Healy owns 35 career outings to his credit. The Oregonian last fought on April 7, traveling to India to outpoint UFC veteran Paul Kelly at the Super Fight League’s sophomore show. In Ronson, Healy faces a 26-year-old Canadian currently riding a six-fight winning streak. “The Body Snatcher” most recently competed in August, taking a unanimous decision from Ricci at SFS 5.view original article >>
