Cox vs. Hinchliffe New Main-Event for TFC “Devastation”
By FCF Staff
The Fight Club’s upcoming December 10th, “Devastation” event has a new main event, as the Edmonton based promotion has announced that Chase Degenhardt is injured and will no longer face middleweight Craig Brown as scheduled. In its place, Chad Cox (5-2) will now face former King of the Cage Canadian champ Nich Hinchliffe (17-6) for the vacant TFC Canadian middleweight title.
Hinchliffe will head into the bout having won back-to-back bouts over Daniel McWilliams and most recently Mike Hackert, after being submitted by UFC vet Kalib Starnes this past July.
Cox is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Nordine Talbe at the recent W-1 card on October 23rd, which was the Nova Scotia fighter’s first appearance since 2008.
“Hinchcliffe and Cox are both top level Canadian middleweights and we would be proud to have either as our Canadian champ,” TFC president Mark Sinclair was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “Degenhardt, Brown, and (Cody) Krahn will all be in line for our new champ’s future title defenses.”
Here is the line-up to date for the December 10th “Devastation” card, which will be hosted by Edmonton’s Shaw Conference Center.
