Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC) will crown their first heavyweight champion as Chris Barnett faces Smealinho Rama.
“I’m excited to have Smealinho Rama and Chris Barnett battle for the heavyweight title,” said Mark Pavelich, MFC president. “MFC 37 is going to keep our streak of fantastic shows rolling right along.”
Barnett has competed mostly for Xtreme Fighting Championship, where he took five wins to bring his overall record to 7-1. He has fought professionally since 2009 and will be making his MFC debut.
Rama is undefeated with each fight ending in round one. He has three wins out of MFC, two of which occurred last year.
MFC 37: True Grit comes from the Shaw Conference Centre in Canada on May 10 and airs on AXS TV.
