Maximum Fighting Championship presents “MFC 26: Retribution” at the River Cree Resort & Casino in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Friday, Sept. 10, 2010. The event will air LIVE on HDNet starting at 10 p.m. ET.

In the main event, local hero and MFC favorite Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (12-2) takes on American Top Team star Douglas “The Phenom” Lima (14-4). In the co-main event, MFC lightweight champion Antonio “Mandingo” McKee (23-3-2)  puts his title and career on the line against Brazilian talent Luciano Azevedo (16-8), the only man to hold a win over current WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Undefeated in the last seven years, McKee has stated he will retire from competition if he can not finish Azevedo. Azevedo has vowed to take McKee’s title and end his career. McKee is one of the best fighters never to fight for Zuffa. If you haven’t seen the interview, check out this video where he called out B.J Penn earlier this year.

There’s plenty of other big names on this card too, including Jesse “JT Money” Taylor, Mike Nickels, David Heath, Tom Watson and more. “MFC 26: Retribution” promo video and full fight card listed below.
