MFC Sets Fickett-Franca Lightweight Title | MFC
Canada’s foremost MMA promotion, the Maximum Fighting Championship, will have a new lightweight titleholder come June 10, when Drew Fickett and Hermes Franca square off for the vacant strap at MFC 30 “Up Close & Personal.” |
The promotion on Monday officially announced both the title bout and the event, which takes place at the Mayfield Inn Trade and Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and will be broadcast live on HDNet. MFC Director of Media and Fighter Relations Scott Zerr confirmed to Sherdog.com that the organization and previous champion Antonio McKee opted to “mutually vacate” the title over the weekend.
MFC 30 marks the fourth iteration of the promotion’s “Unplugged” series, in which the promotion brings events to smaller-than-usual venues.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
