Boston Mass. Sept. 1, 2009 – World Championship Fighting today announced more fights for their September 26th show at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass.
Local 7 Iron Worker, and frequent WCF Fighter John Benoit takes yet another tough fight when he takes on American Top Team’s Hitalo Machado. Benoit was very impressive in his recent win at WCF 7 over Damien Trites, and he looks to keep the train rolling against Machado. Machado makes his WCF debut, but is no stranger to the local fans. He’s a Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt, and is also an accomplished striker. This highly anticipated fight is sure to please.
Damien Trites will make his return to WCF after his war with John Benoit when he takes on Noah Weisman. Noah was impressive in his pro debut with WCF, beating Steve Beck by submission in the first round. Trites will be a big step up in competition for him, but Weisman is looking to get in there with the very best fighters the WCF can give him. Trites is looking for a rematch with Benoit, and a win here could set that fight up.
Two WCF newcomers are set to face off at WCF 8 when Jonathan Sola takes on Jeremy Ross. Both have fought some of the best 155ers in New England, and win here could propel them into the top 10. Both fighters are well rounded, but their strength is their jiu-jitsu. A slick submission is to be expected in this one.
In what could be the fight of the night, Luis Felix takes on Chris Foster. Felix has great wrestling and heavy hands, and Foster is one of the best boxers in local MMA. Both fighters will look to win by knock out, and no matter who wins, this fight will be action backed from the opening bell.
