Apex Announces Undisputed Lineup


From the event’s promoter:


APEX ANNOUNCES UNDISPUTED LINEUP

(Montreal, Quebec) – APEX Entertainment Group Inc is proud to announce further information concerning the September 3rd edition of APEX Championship Fighting; UNDISPUTED which will be held at The Medley in Montreal.

As previously announced, Ivan "The Pride of El Salvador" Menjivar will once again be headlining an APEX event, this time against Toronto’s own Antonio "Pato" Carvalho from Team Shah Franco. Menjivar and Carvalho, considered two of the top featherweights in the world, will battle it out for the UNDISPUTED APEX Featherweight Title.

In the co-main event, two of Canada’s top middleweights Stephan "Rudeboy" Potvin will enter the ring against Fritz "The Animal" Paul. Potvin has been in the ring with some of the best middleweights in the world and is on the road to returning to glory in his rightful place among the country’s best middleweights. Potvin has been on a roll recently by winning his last two fights against a tough Bill Hill and most recently against UFC Veteran Tyrone Roberts at Freedom Fight 2005. Paul is one of Quebec’s rising stars at Middleweight and has a sparkling record of 6-1-0. Facing a veteran like Potvin will be Paul’s biggest test of his young career, but he is confident in his abilities.

Featured on the card will be the return of Brent Beauparlant (2-1-0) to Quebec. Coming off a tough loss against Brazilian phenom Helio Depp in Jungle Fight, Beauparlant returns in front of his home fans to face tough American Jason Guida (9-7-0) of Gilbert Grappling. As a member of the Canadian National Wrestling team, Beauparlant competed around the world and trained with top teams in Brazil and trained Muay-Thai in Thailand. Now ready to get his MMA career on the fast track, Beauparlant faces a veteran in Chicago’s Jason Guida. Guida has won seven of his last nine fights and has recently moved up to the Light Heavyweight Division. Guida is coming off a big win against Ron Faircloth.

Also featured on the card is Quebec Kickboxing star Serge Lafond (2-1-0) of Team Bergeron in Drummondville who will be putting his skills to the test against Carlos Newton prot
