Ryan Ford Fighting Nick Hinchliffe at June 10th Aggression MMA
By FCF Staff
Aggression MMA has announced that noted welterweight Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford will face resilient veteran Nick Hinchliffe in the main event of the promotion’s upcoming, June 10th, event in Edmonton, Alberta. “Confrontation” will be hosted by the city’s Shaw Conference Centre.
Ford (14-3) made his Aggression debut in March and stopped Johnny Davis in the second round, after scoring a submission win over Pete Spratt at a Maximum Fighting Championship card last November.
“All I gotta say is that Nick better step his game up from his last few fights, cause I’m on a whole different level than any fighter he’s fought,” Ford was quoted saying in the official announcement. “Everything that I bring to the fight…he won’t be able to handle it. So, bottom line, he ain’t G’d up, so he’s gettin’ beat up.”
Hinchliffe (18-7) continues to keep a busy schedule, as after going 4-2 in 2010, the Nanaimo fighter earned a majority decision win over Ryan Machan at Armageddon Fighting Championship 5 in April.
“Confrontation” will also feature accomplished Muay Thai competitor Shane Campbell (4-1), grappling specialist Luke Harris (6-1), the MMA debut of kickboxing champion Levi Krupe, and UFC veteran Victor Valimaki (16-8).
The full card will be announced shortly.
