Salt Lake City, UTAH – Showdown Fights returns to the UCCU Center in Orem on Saturday, April 16 for a pair of highly anticipated fights featuring a mixture of veteran fighters and highly-touted prospects.
In “Showdown Fights: Shootout” main event, former UFC and WEC fighter Tim “The Wrecking Machine” McKenzie (12-8) and Jordan “Mata Ele” Smith (15-1) will face off in welterweight action. Only one of McKenzie’s 20 professional fights have reached the judges, and he’ll be looking to rebound from a losing effort to former Ultimate Fighter star Seth Baczynski in December. Smith scored a rear-naked choke submission over Mario Sartori in his last bout and has only suffered one defeat thus far in his career.
The co-main event of the evening will see Team Alpha Male product and UFC veteran Justin Buchholz taking on hometown favorite Steven “Razor” Sharp. Buchholz looks to return to his winning ways in the “Showdown Fights: Shootout,” while Sharp will be looking to improve on his win over Brad McRae at “Showdown Fights: New Blood.”
