Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC) has announced an upcoming fight for their May card that will see the Treadwell brothers do battle. When the heavyweights Thomas and Mike fight, it will be a first for MFC and a rarity in the sport.
“Absolutely, undeniably, one of the craziest and most anticipated fights in MFC history,” said Mark Pavelich, MFC president.
The two will be making their MMA debut with Mike the elder by 10 years. Their brother Russ will corner Thomas, which has created tension in the family.
“Dad was angry and thinks we’re idiots,” said Thomas. “Mom knows but we don’t talk about it with her. Everyone else seems supportive.”
They meet at MFC 37 on May 10. The brothers are set for the preliminary card which comes from the Shaw Conference Centre in Canada. AXS TV airs the main card.
