TKO 35: QUENNEVILLE VS HIOKI features one of the best featherweight fighters in the world and the current TKO World Champion, Hatsu Hioki (15-3-2). He is back to defend his world title against the massively popular local fighter, Thierry Quenneville (12-7-0). Quenneville has long sought a championship title shot, but some wonder if he has bitten off more than he can chew with Hioki.
The co-main event features Bantamweight Champion, Adrian “The Bully” Wooley (5-0-0), making his first title defense against former Ultimate Fighter reality show cast member, Noah Thomas (11-5-0). Another incredible fight will feature five-time UFC veteran, Forrest Petz (14-5-0), against one of Canada’s best welterweights, TJ Grant (11-2-0). Also, recent Ultimate Fighter reality show contestant, Lance Evans (12-2-0), returns to TKO to face Montreal’s own, the very popular Steve Bosse (3-1-0).
