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.
