MFC 40: Sam Alvey Retains Title With KO Win, Tom Gallicchio Secures Lightweight Belt
By FCF Staff
Sam Alvey remains the Maximum Fighting Championship’s middleweight champ, as the TUF vet knocked out Wes Swofford in the fourth round Friday night, at the promotion’s 40th event.
In the card’s other title fight, Tom Gallicchio laid claim to the MFC lightweight title, by tapping out Kurt Southern with a first round, rear-naked-choke. It is the same technique Gallicchio used to defeat Southern in January, but because he failed to make weight for that fight, the BJJ black belt was ineligible for the title.
Here are the results from MFC 40, which was hosted by Edmonton’s Shaw Conference Centre.
