Mixed martial arts returns to London Ontario this Saturday, as Provincial Fighting Championship holds its first event at the Western Fair Agriplex building. This fight card is loaded with local talent, and Kimurawear is very proud to support and sponsor 4 of the fighters on the card.

Jesse Gross

In the co-main event of the evening, Jesse "The Ghost" Gross looks to continue his hot streak and take out the undefeated Michael Karkula of Extreme Couture Toronto. Gross is coming off a unanimous decision win over another top Canadian in Tristan Johnson. If Jesse is able to take out Karkula, he will be one step closer to making it to the big show. Gross is mainly known as an explosive and devastating striker, but showed solid wrestling skills in his last bout against Tristan Johnson. This fight is worthy of its co-main event status, and we look forward to watching Jesse go to war.

Shannon Ludlow

Shannon "The Cannon" Ludlow will be making her professional debut at Provincial Fighting Championship. The London native fights out of the Adrenaline Training Centre, which is where such mma stars as Mark Hominick, Sam Stout, and headlining fighter Chris Horodecki call home. Ludlow has fought once as an amateur and looks to get the same result in her professional debut. Shannon was able to score a third round submission win this past July in Michigan.

Darryl Marin

Darryl Marin is making his professional mma debut at Provincial Fighting Championship, but he is far from a newcomer to the art of fighting. Darryl has competed in over 70 amateur and professional muay thai bouts, nationally and internationally. Marin is also the owner and main instructor at Darkside Muay Thai in Kitchener Ontario. Having top notch stand up skills, would make most think that Darryl is uncomfortable on the ground, but that is not the case. Marin has been working on his ground for quite some time and is ready where ever the fight goes.

Malcolm Gordon

Malcolm Gordon last competed at Substance Cage Combat in Toronto Ontario, where he faced Ahmed Akkar. The ultra explosive flyweight was allover his opponent and was able to set a pace that Ahmed could not keep up. Despite being deep in a triangle choke in the second round, Gordon was able to finish off his opponent with strikes on the ground. After pushing his record to 2-0 at SCC, Malcolm will look to make it three in a row in London.

We look forward to this event and hope for it to be a success for #teamkimurawear as well as the PFC.

Body-X Board Shorts With the success of our Body-X Compression Series, it seemed only natural to expand on the line and give our customers more options when looking for athletic apparel. Kimurawear is proud to announced the launch of our Body-X Board Short Series. As with our compression series, our Body-X Board Shorts Series is designed to become an extension of your body and, increase your athletic performance and potential. This is achieved by two new innovations, our Core Flow™ technology and our Volo™ cut.

Our Core Flow™ technology is very similar to that of our compression series. This special material is a spandex, lycra, organic, cotton blend that offers several benefits.
  • Breathable: Thousands of air pockets are lined in the shorts allowing for a greater air flow.
  • Flexible: Body-X Shorts are able to stretch unlike any short on the market
  • Sweat Control: Wicks away the athletes sweat and aids in the bodies overall heat regulation.
  • Bacteria Control: With less sweat there is less chance for bacteria to grow.
Our Body-X Board Shorts have been constructed in a unique way in order to maximize the athletes range of motion. We have developed the Volo™ cut, which gives more range of motion than any other short on the market. This special higher cut has been tested with martial artists and athletes alike and the verdict is that it works! We have added an additional two inches of material to the shorts inseam, which allows the bodies hips much more room to work with.

Josh Hill on TUF 18
Canadian bantamweight and Kimurawear sponsored athlete Josh Hill, was one of 16 bantamweights that were flown down to Las Vegas for a chance to make it onto The Ultimate Fighter television show. It has been a long time coming for the 26 year old from Hamilton ON. Hill has been fighting professional for the past 4 years and accumulated a very impressive record of 9-0. Long considered a top prospect at 135 pounds, the ultimate fighter seemed like a logical step for Hill to take. In order to make it past the first episode, Josh had to do battle in the octagon, and earn a place in the ultimate fighter house. Josh was able to get his opponent and was picked to be on Miesha Tates team. The former model has not fought since and has had little camera time, but I think that is about change in the near future as the gentleman is bound to fight sooner than later.

Follow Josh on Twitter: @gentlemanjhill

Be sure to tune in every Wednesday at 10pm, on Rogers Sportsnet to support the local Canuck.

The UFC drops down in Ontario s capital again this Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre and brings two titles that are sure to excite the fans. There is plenty of Canadian talent on the undercard that should bring some pride to the great white north.

Jon Jones Vs Alexander Gustafsson

Jon Jones puts his 205 title on the line when he faces Swedish import Alexander Gustafsson. This will be the fist time that the champ will have to face someone who is as tall as him and has a similar reach as Jones. Jones reach advantage has seen him make great fighters look not so great, so the question is will he employ a stand up strategy against Gustafsson. Who has the better striking? Its a close call on who has the more polished striking in the main event, but Jones does bring a more deserve arsenal to the table. Jones has a clear advantage in the wrestling department, but he seldom takes his opponents down. I think Jones is the superior athlete and will win this fight were ever it goes. I see it going to the distance and Bones Jones remaining the best at 205 pounds.

Renan Barao vs Eddie Wineland

The interim bantamweight title is on the line in the co-main event as champion Dominick Cruz is still sidelined with injury. Interm champion Renan Barao looks to defend his title for the second time against former WEC featherweight champ Eddie Wineland. Barao has looked flawless in his UFC and WEC career so far but Wineland has been impressive in his last two bouts against Brad Pickett and Scott Jorgensen. Barao will likely take this bout with a combination of his high level muay thai and jiu jitsu skills. I see Barao getting the finish in the 3rd.

Brendan Schaub vs Matt Mitrione

Heavyweights are in action as Ultimate Fighter alumnus Brendan Schaub takes on fellow castrate Matt Mitrione. Both fighters have improved tremendously since there time on the Ultimate fighter and have developed well rounded skill sets. If Mitrione can keep it it on the feet he has a good chance of winning the fight. Schaub seems more comfortable on the ground and will likely try to get the fight to the mats and look to ground out a decision. I think Mitrione is going to get the KO in this fight, in the first round.

Costa Philippou vs Francis Carmont

Two big athletic middle weights are looking to get to the top of there division, and the winner of this fight will be close to the top of the division. Costa has the better striking and will likely win a stand up war by KO. Carmont is a big and athletic middleweight who is likely to look for the take down and ground fight. Can Carmont take down Phillippou? He can and is likely to get it to the mat at some point, but I see Costa being able to get back to his feet and get the KO.

Pat Healy vs Khabib Nurmagomedev

Top light weights are in action in the opening bout of the main card as Pat Healy takes on Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomdev. Healys last fight saw him dominate top contender Jim Miller, while Khabib smothered Abel Trujillo to death in his last bout. It will be interesting to see who dominates the grappling portion of this fight as they are both very good at what they do. This fight could down as a stinker and hugging contest, but I am very interested to see how it plays out. Not sure who takes this one.

Also on the card are Canadians Mike Ricci, Ivan Menjivar, Chris Clements, Mitch Gagnon, John Makdessi, Jesse Ronson, and Roland Delorme. Lets go Canucks!!!!
