An action-packed lineup of Manitoba’s biggest names in fighting is set for Friday, September 13th at the Winnipeg Convention Centre as the Canadian Fighting Championship proves once again that they are the premiere promotion in Manitoba.
With some tickets still available for this weekend’s CFC 8 card, fans must be sure to call (204) 772-2599 to order their VIP passes or buy them online from Ticketmaster or they risk missing this great event.
Headlined by one of the best athletes in Canadian MMA history, the CFC 8 main event matchup between Joe Doerksen (49-16) and Mike Kent (9-2) will have fans standing on their feet. Manitoba’s Doerksen can become Canada’s only 50 win MMA fighter with a win in the main event, but Nova Scotia’s Kent is coming to down to spoil the hometown hero’s party.
The semi-main event of the night features a battle of undefeated fighters! Winnipeg’s Travis Gervais (3-0) has knocked out everyone he has faced in his career and he will be looking to finish Kevin Lee (5-0) on September 13th as well. Lee has had more cage time and will look to take Gervais down a notch. Who will receive their first professional loss at CFC 8?
Also on the card is fight between cross town rivals Dominick Blais (9-5) and Mark Durant (3-3). The two Lightweights have been featured on many Canadian Fighting Championship cards throughout the years and always leave the fans wanting more. The two fighters always have large cheering sections. Who will you be cheering on when they finally meet each other inside the cage?
Thunder Bay’s Nathan Gunn (10-4) is one of the top Welterweights in Canada and he will be facing Milwaukee’s Gerald Meerschaert (16-7) in a Canada versus the USA matchup.
Other local Winnipeg athletes scheduled to appear on the card include Jon Henderson, who is looking to derail the unbeaten Kyle Nelson, Agostino DeNatale, Vyron Phillips, David Quangvan, and Ryan Pang.
