MMAMania Top Fight of the Week Tonight on GFL.Tv – Emanuel Newton vs. Matt Baker – Fight Night Medicine Hat
After three straight difficult losses to top contenders, former Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Emanuel Newton returns to the regional scene for the first time in nearly five years to battle Matt Baker at Fight Night Medicine Hat.
“The Hardcore Kid” is best known for his legendary spinning back fist knockouts over King Mo and Joey Beltran, and he will look to get back in the win column with another violent finish this weekend.
While Newton is the heavy favorite, it would be unwise for him to overlook Baker on Saturday night.
“The Riotmaker” hasn’t exactly had the greatest MMA career — owning a 13-8 record — but with 12 career finishes, Baker can absolutely pull off the upset.
Even with his current losing streak, Newton has proven to be a must-watch fighter over and over again, and this Saturday night is no different.
Can he return to Bellator with a regional title around his waist?
