"Other" Hughes Set for Extreme Challenge in Chicago

Extreme Challenge 51 poster
      After spending time helping his twin brother keep in shape, Mark Hughes has gotten the itch to fight again.
      Although he is a UFC veteran, Mark Hughes has been happy to play a supporting role and watch brother Matt win the UFC welterweight championship and single-handedly clear out the 170-pound division.
      However, it will be Mark Hughes getting onto the ring at Extreme Challenge 51, scheduled for Aug. 2 at Sportsplex in St. Charles, Ill.
      "I’ve been training a little and thought it would be fun to do again," he said. Mark will be facing Leo Sylvest, a winner of three straight bouts, who represents Integrated Fighting.
      Mark’s lone UFC appearance was a decision victory over Alex Stiebling in UFC 28.
      In addition to the Hughes-Sylvest bout, Jeremy Horn will make his first-ever appearance as a middleweight (185 pounds) when he takes on William Hill. It will be Horn’s 16th fight in the Extreme Challenge.
      "I’m hoping this division is kind of a new start for me, so it makes sense to go where I started my career," Horn said.
      Sportsplex, the host for the event, is an indoor soccer facility in St. Charles, a suburb of Chicago.
      "I haven’t been doing many events lately, but Jeff Curran wanted to team up on an event and I thought this would be fun," said promoter Monte Cox. "When it started, I really didn’t expect it to be such a strong show."
      In the main event, Jason Medina of Miletich Martial Arts will face Gideon Ray of Hackney’s Combat in a battle of up-and-coming welterweights.
      The undercard features many of the top young fighters in the Chicago area. Also competing is Mark Homnick, the UCC Canadian champion.
      Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with the first bout starting at 8 p.m.
      Tickets for the event are available at numerous sites, including the Sportsplex (630) 762-8100; Linxx Academy (815) 356-0454; Hackney’s Combat (630) 351-1209; and Combat-Do/All-American (708) 222-8100.
