MFC 22: PAYOFF Airs Live Tonight on HDNet
The show begins at 7:00 pm PST and goes down in Edmonton, Alberta. I know most people don't get HDNet, but, just in case you do, these fights are pretty compelling.
The main event features, T.U.F 4 winner, Travis Lutter (9-5), against, one of Western Canada's most successful mixed martial artists, Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald (21-12). Both of these guys are angling for a return to the UFC and a win here could put either of them over the top.
The big names don't stop there, with Marvin Eastman (16-10-1), John Alessio (25-13), and Luigi Fiorivanti (15-5) all set to appear on the main card.
Unfortunately, well-known journeyman, Carlo Prater (24-6-1) missed weight for his scheduled lightweight title-match with, IFL stand-out, Antonio McKee (23-3-2). As a result, their tilt has been scaled back to a three-round, non-title bout.
Even though it's not in B.C., this card is exciting because it's one of the biggest ever put together in Western Canada. MFC 22 demonstrates the kind of quality of fights we can expect to see regularly in Vancouver once MMA becomes sanctioned here.
Anyway, if you get HDNet and haven't got much going on tonight, check out MFC 22: PAYOFF.
