Hoosier Fighting Club 30

HFC 30 (Offer on VOD until Sold Out) from Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City, Indiana is another great regional promotions featuring top pro MMA competition. A great matchup in the 155lb weight class is a bout between Austin Hubbard (4-0) and Sean McMurray (4-1). Hubbard trains with Elevation Fight Team out of the MusclePharm gym in Denver, Co., and includes former UFC champions TJ Dillashaw and Matt Brown. McMurry is a former Michigan State wrestler coming from The Lab.

This is a match up of two highly touted and up and coming lightweights. Hubbard has been fighting since April 2014, during which time he is 7-0 including his amateur fights.  McMurray has been fighting since February 2013, is 7-1 including his amateur fights, with his only loss being a ref stoppage last June due to a cut that his corner could not stop from bleeding.

Hubbard has finished his opponents in 6 of 7 contests and McMurray has finished 5 of 7 opponents in his wins.  Both are young highly skilled fighters looking for a statement win. Though each fighter has fought competitive opponents, this is clearly the toughest match up to date for both fighters.  I would not be surprised if this fight was the best fight of the weekend. Pick’em.

Notable Fight on the Card: Sultan Umar (3-0, 7-0 including amateur bouts) v Dustin Pape (7-3) is the Main Event at HFC 30. They will square off for the inaugural HFC 170 lb Championship.  Umar is considered a special type of athletic Welterweight, having Knocked Out all 3 pro opponents in the first round via Punches. Pape, a very tough and durable fighter has gone the distance in 4 of his bouts and even in his losses has gone deep into each contest.  This will be Umar’s toughest opponent to date, as Pape is not an easy out. Will Umar’s athleticism prevail or will Pape’s stamina and veteran skills prove to be too much for Umar to handle? Stamina and experience disappear when you are caught with a solid punch.
