If Ryan Ford ever wins the MFC welterweight title it truly will have been “a long time coming.” The Canadian was scheduled to rematch champion and UFC veteran, Pat Healy last Friday night for the title but was forced out due to injury.
The fan favorite hyper-extended his knee in training and luckily did not suffer any serious damage. The two fighters have agreed to rematch on the February 20th MFC card.
The only reason there is going to be a rematch is because Pat Healy turned in perhaps one of the biggest upsets of the year. The MFC’s outspoken promoter, Mark Pavelich has been grooming Ford for some time.
