EDMONTON, Alberta – Although a main event is yet to be announced, the fight card for Maximum Fighting Championship’s “MFC 25: Vindication” is stacked. The event, which will take place at the the Northlands Expo Center in Edmonton on May 7 will air live on HDNet.
The co-main event features Ryan “The Big Deal” Jimmo (12-1) and Wilson Gouveia (12-7) going at it for MFC’s number one light heavyweight contender spot. This fight will be the biggest and likely most challenging of Jimmo’s three-year pro MMA career.
He lost his pro debut in Feb. 2007, but has not lost a single bout since; that is 12 straight victories for the Canadian. Jimmo’s most recent fight was a dominating unanimous decision victory over former MFC light heavyweight champion Emanuel Newton at MFC 23 back in December.
This fight will mark Gouveia’s MFC debut after a four-year stint with the UFC. And after dropping his last two bouts at middleweight, to Nate Marquardt and Alan Belcher respectively, Gouveia will make the move to 205 lbs.
Also fighting at light heavyweight on May 7 will be Fort McMurray, Alberta’s Dwayne Lewis (11-4) taking on Mike Nickels (8-3) of Denver, Colo. Lewis has won his last seven fights, and the last five by knockout. Marvin Eastman and Ryan McClain were his most recent victims.
