The action packed 11 bout pro/am card will feature many of the established and top up and coming superstars of the Great White North.

In the main event, Shooto vet Sergej Juskevic (13-6-2) fights WSOF vet Joel Powell (6-2). Juskevic has won 6 of his last 7 and is comfortable on the ground with 9 of his wins coming via submission and will look to get the fight to the mat where he can work is wrestling and grappling game. Powell comes into the fight with a proven track record of fighting his heart out and always looking to push the pace to see if he can break his opponent’s will in the process. Powell is looking to regroup after a tough loss earlier this year. Look for this fight to be a test of wills as both fighters will want to set the pace and keep the other fighter on the defensive.

In the co-main event, Ryan Machan (22-8) battles WSOF vet Marcus Hicks (18-24). Machan is a veteran to the Canadian MMA scene having fought since 2006. Machan is on a 4-fight win streak and holds a title with another organization. Machan has only gone to a decision 3 times in his career and is an extremely fast starter ending the majority of his fights in the first and second rounds. Hicks is on a 4-fight win steak himself having won all 4 via submission. Hicks has only gone to a decision one time in his career so you can bet the leather will be flying and the odds of this ending via KO or submission are very high. Don’t blink when these two grizzled vets throw down in the cage.

Kevin Taylor (0-0) and Kyle Francotti (0-1) lock horns in a highly anticipated pro bout. Taylor is a hard-hitting brawler from Saskatchewan and loves to mix it up and let his hands go. In his amateur days, he was always a fan favorite for his high risk-high reward style. Francotti looks to get his first victory as a pro and even his record to .500. Francotti displayed a terrific ground game as an amateur and will definitely look to take Taylor off of his feet and put him on the canvas for a ground battle.
