The Maximum Fighting Championship continues to add top talent to its roster with their latest addition of Canadian prospect Graham Spencer (8-1). This is the first fighter they have brought in to be part of their newly launched featherweight division which will debut at MFC 35 taking place on October 26th LIVE on AXS TV.
Spencer has signed a multi-fight deal with the promotion as the first fighter to join the 145-pound ranks. Other fighters will be brought in to fill out the new weight-class but at this stage no other announcements have been made.
Here is what MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich had to say about signing Spencer:
“I am very excited about bringing Graham Spencer into the MFC as part of our leap into the featherweight division,” Pavelich also said. “The MFC re-launched its heavyweight division, and now by adding the 145ers, our talent pool is getting even deeper.” He then went on to say “But I tell all the fighters the same thing I said to Graham’s management. It’s not going to be easy, there are no free rides, no hand-picking your opponents in the MFC. No one is going to get handed anything.”
Graham Spencer is currently riding a three fight winning streak, most recently defeating Shawn Albrecht via submission at Battlefield Fight League 13 in February. Prior to that he scored a unanimous decicion victory over Bruno Capedeville in May 2011, and recorded a no-contest against Roy Bradshaw just before that in March 2011.
“The best part is that I have faith in all the fighters we sign. We showcase guys who want to fight anybody that’s put in front of them. That way our champions and our top contenders really deserve their opportunity in the spotlight.” Said Pavelich.
Throughout his career so far Spencer has earned four victories via submission, including two finishes inside the opening round. This exciting addition to the MFC is yet to find out who his opponent will be, announcements are likely to be made over the coming weeks/months.
