Edmonton, Alberta (Canada): Aggression MMA, one of the top MMA promotions in Canada, today announced that the promotion has signed rising welterweight star Sheldon Westcott to compete on its upcoming February 11th event. The name of Westcott’s opponent will be released shortly.

This event will take place at the Shaw Conference Center on Saturday, February 11th. Tickets are available over the phone at (780) 426-SOLD, or online at www.TNTTickets.ca. Many more exciting fights will be announced in the coming weeks!
“We are proud and excited to bring on a talent like Sheldon,” stated Aggression MMA Co-Owner Moin Mirza. “Having a talent like him join our roster shows that we are committed to growing MMA in Canada, and developing the best talent our country has to offer.”
Sheldon Westcott (5-1-1) is considered to be one of the most talented Canadian 170-pounders competing today, and is poised for a breakout 2012 campaign. Most recently, he competed in back-to-back fights against well-known veteran Thomas “Wildman” Denny. In their first bout, the 27-year old native of Alberta fought “Wildman” to a split-draw, which demanded an immediate rematch. This past June, Westcott got what he wanted, securing a dominant unanimous decision victory utilizing superior ground control in a highly-entertaining affair.
Now with Aggression, this blue-chip prospect is ready to leave his up-and-comer status behind and enter into the rarified air of a bona fide championship threat.
“We are very excited to showcase a fighter like Sheldon in our stacked welterweight division,” said Aggression MMA Co-Owner Harvey Panesar. “We feel that Aggression can provide the platform for all our fighters to showcase their talents and achieve their goals, and that includes Sheldon.”
