By FCF Staff
The Maximum Fighting Championship has announced that is has signed lightweight Brian Cobb to a multi-fight contract, and that he will face fellow UFC veteran Drew Fickett at the promotion’s upcoming June 10th event in Edmonton, Alberta.
“I am very excited about this matchup,” Mark Pavelich, MFC Owner/President was quoted saying in the news release. “Brian Cobb is someone who has been on our radar for some time, and I think this is the perfect time to bring him in.”
“He’s ranked in the top 20 in the world, which is outstanding considering the depth of talent in the lightweight division. I believe he and Drew Fickett will put on a tremendous showcase of their skills which will make for a dynamic and entertaining fight. Having two extremely tactical fighters like Cobb and Fickett apply their trade in a co-main event with such devastating as Spratt and Davis – that’s the best of both worlds for true mixed martial arts fans.”
Cobb (18-6) has won three straight heading into his MFC debut. Most recently the 30 year-old-fighter submitted Radley Martinez in the second round while competing on a Fight for Wrestling event on May 20th. Cobb is 8-2 in his last ten fights with his only losses during that stretch coming to Ricardo Tirloni and Terry Etim, the latter of which occurred at UFC 95.
MFC 30 will be hosted by Edmonton’s Mayfield Conference Centre and will be broadcast live on HDNet.
The event will also feature Marcus Davis taking on Pete Spratt.
