MFC 37 - True Grit

MFC 37 True Grit, goes down tomorrow night at he shaw conference Centre in Edmonton Alberta. Unfortunately the main event between surging Canadian heavyweight Smealinho Rama, and American Chris Barnett hasbeen cancelled, but Kimruawear sponsored fighter Anthony Birchak and his opponent have stepped up to highlight the stacked card. Also on the card are Kimurawear athletes Jason Zentgrag and Muaki Maromo.


Anthony Birchak fights Ryan Benoit in the main event of MFC 37 tomorrow night. The winner of this bout is guaranteed an opportunity to fight for the inaugural bantamweight tile at a future MFC event. Birchak looks to seize this opportunity and make a statement as the top 135 pound fighter in the MFC. Birchak who fights out of Apex MMA in Tucson AZ, made a name for himself as a finisher by winning his first 4 bouts by submission. After compiling a an 8-1 record, Birchak got an opportunity to headline an event at Jacksons MMA in Albuquerque, NM. He faced one Jacksons MMA top prospects in Matt Leyva, and was able to finish him in 82 seconds by tko. This fight put Anthony on the radar of a lot promoters, and he signed an exclusive deal with Canada s top promotion in MFC.


Jason Zentgraf has already complied a 2-0 record in the MFC's middleweight division. Zentgraf looks to make it 3 in a row tomorrow night in Edmonton and make a claim for the vacant 185 pound strap. He faces brazilian jiu jitsu and judo black belt Luke Harris. Although all of Jasons victories have come by way of submission, he should have a solid striking advantage against the hometown fighter Harris. With both fighters being high level grapplers, the one who can out strike there opponent in this bout should walk away with the victory and a possible title shot.


Muaki Maromo is one of the most exciting fighters to watch on the MFC roster. He is a very explosive athlete that brings in a very solid muay thai background. Coming off a loss in his last bout, Muaki should be looking to make a statement and let everyone know that he is a top contender in the MFC's lightweight division. Prior to Maromo's last bout he had complied an ultra impressive record in of 4-0 in the MFC. Muaki had beaten title challenger Adam Lynn on two occasion, with the second fight ending in highlight reel ko fashion. Maromo's next fight is against a familiar opponent in Kurt Southern. The two faced each other over two years ago, and Southern was the victory handing Muakai his first loss. Maramo is a much different fighter now and intends on showing that when he faces southern for the second time.
