One of MMA’s top bantamweights, Mike “The Hulk” Easton (9-1) is coming to Nashville, Tenn. on Feb. 20 to fight Tom Ahrens (10-6) in the “Gameness Fighting Championship VI” co-main event. ProMMA.info confirmed the news with GFC matchmaker Mike Camp earlier today. Easton is the current UWC Bantamweight Champion and a BJJ black belt under Master Lloyd Irvin.
Easton is currently on a five-fight win streak with his most recent win being a highly controversial split decision over Chase Beebe. The result of the bout was investigated until Virginia’s regulatory body decided the original decision would stand.
Ahrens is a submission expert, and has been fighting professionally for seven years. He will no doubt be looking to get back on the winning track, as he is coming off a third round doctor stoppage loss against Travis Perzynski at Extreme Challenge 127 last May.
GFC 6 is stacking up to be Gameness Fighting Championship‘s most impressive card to date. With eight professional fights so far confirmed and over 15 amateur fights scheduled, Nashville fans are in for one giant night of mixed martial arts action.
Other pro fighters lined up for GFC 6 include UFC veteran Josh Schockman, James Hall, Dustin West, Cory Alexander, Timothy (Rashad) Woods, and several fighters making their pro debut. Although not yet definite, Sengoku, Bellator, and Elite XC veteran, Dave “Pee Wee” Herman is being rumored for the main event.
