“After the major success of Prestige FC 1, we wanted to get our second show booked as quickly as possible, and we felt very prepared to go into a major market, at a stylish venue, and on live TV with The Fight Network and Access 7,” said Cord Crowthers, CEO & Matchmaker for Prestige FC.
“The opportunity to put on an event in Regina makes a big statement for us. Prestige FC is determined to a front-runner in Canadian MMA so we had to go forward in a big city. The Orr Centre has hosted
several major events, including combat sports, which makes it a great fit. The fact that two titles are at stake makes the event even prestigious.”
Southern (14-6) made a tremendously successful debut in the featherweight division at Prestige FC 1 back in October when he forced Daniel Swain to tap out via guillotine choke just over two minutes into their matchup. Southern’s performance earned him the Submission of the Night, and the victory catapulted Southern to the top spot in Canada’s featherweight rankings as well as inside the world’s top 100, according to Fight Matrix. Southern boasts notable career wins over Mukai Maromo, Jonatas Novaes, and Brad Cardinal.
Tweet (7-5) completed her bitter trilogy with Anna Barone in rousing style at Prestige FC 1, notching a first-round TKO. The vicious beatdown earned Tweet the Knockout of the Night award and propelled her to a title bout. Tweet, who is ranked eighth in the world by Fight Matrix, is the only fighter to have matched up against both Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino and Ronda Rousey.
Along with the featherweight title fights, the entire Prestige FC 2 card will feature talent from across Canada and the United States, including Brad Katona and Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz, both of whom are elite Canadian prospects.
More fights will be announced as soon as possible.
