MFC 20: “Destined for Greatness” Preview

The Maximum Fighting Championship is back with their first show of 2009 on February 20th with MFC 20: Destined for Greatness. The event will be broadcast live on HDNet and will take place at the River Cree Resort and Casino in Edmonton Alberta, Canada.

The stacked card will showcase two title fights, with the main event being the highly anticipated rematch between Welterweight champion Pat “Bam Bam” Healy (19-13), and the wildly popular and exciting challenger, Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (8-1).

Ryan Ford was clearly the aggressor in the first meeting against Pat Healy, who handed him his first career loss.  Healy used his counter fighting skills to finally catch and submit the young fighter in the third round, but not before he took a beating in the process. Ford has worked hard on his ground game since the first fight, looking to add to his athletic fighting style as he steps back into the ring against Healy.
