Former UFC Vets Part Of Phoenix Fights 11/29


Official press release on Phoenix Fight Promotions Next card on November 29th:

Three Maritime fighters go toe-to-toe with world-class mixed martial artists November 29th at the Dartmouth Sportsplex. Phoenix Fight Promotions presents WANTED, featuring three local stars facing veterans of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

In the night’s headlining match local superstar TJ Grant (12-2) steps up to face Richie Hightower (7-3,) a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. Cole Harbour’s Grant recently became Canada’s #1 welterweight contender by defeating five-time UFC veteran Forrest Petz. Grant puts a three-fight win streak on the line against Hightower, a heavy-handed fighter from Phoenix, AZ.

Undefeated Truro lightweight Jason MacKay (8-0) faces the biggest challenge of his career in Drew Fickett (35-7.) Fickett brings an incredible amount of experience to the cage, and holds a 4-2 record in the UFC octagon. A win over Fickett could catapult MacKay into the sport’s elite levels.

In the light-heavyweight category, New Brunswick-born fighter Ryan `Big Deal’ Jimmo (7-1) faces three-time UFC veteran Carmelo `the Fury’ Marrero (9-3.) Jimmo recently appeared on the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter. Defeating Marrero would prove Jimmo has what it takes to fight in the world’s biggest MMA promotion.

More action-packed fights fill out the card! There are no easy fights for the local favourites. Only Phoenix Fight Promotions brings the world’s top fighters to test the best of the Maritimes!
