ProMMA.info (www.promma.info) was notified today that ten-time UFC veteran Wilson Gouveia (12-7) signed a multi-fight deal with Maximum Fighting Championship on Monday. His first fight for the organization will take place against Canadian Ryan “Big Deal” Jimmo (12-1) at “MFC 25: Vindication” at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton, Alberta on April 9.
MFC 25 will broadcast live on HDNet and feature a soon to be announced major title fight.
Gouveia decided to return to light heavyweight after trouble making the 185 lbs. weight limit, and suffering back-to-back knockout losses, to Nate Marquardt at UFC 95, and then Alan Belcher at UFC 107.
