In this episode we spoke with two top Canadian fighters: Ryan Ford — a soon-to-be Bellator fighter looking to prove he can beat the best in the world — and top prospect Tyson Steele. The two will square off in the main event at Aggression MMA 9 in Edmonton.
TJ Thompson, the smartest man with the smallest say in Elite XC, will try to get back on the right track with ProElite 3 in Honolulu. The main event is odd matchmaking at its best, but this round of the heavyweight tournament should be a little bit more interesting. Plus, undefeated former Olympian Sara McMann takes on Strikeforce veteran Hitomi Akano. The main card airs live on HDNet on Saturday night at 10 p.m. ET.
With ProElite’s third show coming up on January 21 in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Outsider was lucky enough to land an interview with rising female 135-pound contender Sara McMann.
