The Maximum Fighting Championship promotion announced today that their heavyweight division will be reborn on August 10th when Tim Hague takes on Mike Hackert. The event is entitled MFC 34: Clash of the Titans and will take place in the Mayfield Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The fight is a rematch as the two fought one another in May with Hackert defeating Hague to take the decision win. Hackert thinks it’ll be the same as last time:
“I think it’s going to be the same as last time, “ says Hackert, “He will not be able to take me down, and I’m going to keep it standing. That’s where my strength is.”
However, Hague has different thoughts as he plans to get the win in the rematch:
“Mike Hackert beat me on May 18th. He took that title from me fair and square, and August 10th, I’ll be damned if I don’t get it back.”
