Partial Line-Up Announced For AFC 2 in Victoria
TopMMANews.com has released a tentative line-up for Armageddon Fighting Championships (AFC)'s sophomore event, which is set to take place on March, 6th at Collwood's Bear Mountain Arena.
The event, dubbed AFC 2, will take place on the outskirts of British Columbia's capital of Victoria, at least partly due to the fact that MMA remains unsanctioned within the city limits. The show will be headlined by middleweight Dan MacIver (6-0) who impressed Island MMA fans in the co-main event of AFC 1 with a first round TKO victory. No opponent for MacIver has been named at this time.
A featured bout at AFC 2 will see the return to action of UFC 4 veteran, B.C. resident, and soon-to-be Burnaby-based gym operator, Jason "Bonecracker" Fairn (3-4). TopMMANews caught up with Jason Fairn to get his reactions to this announcement and his thoughts on returning to the ring. That article can be found HERE. Fairn will reportedly face Xtreme Couture's Phil Friedman (1-2) in a heavyweight tilt.
This partial line-up announcement is great news and will likely be followed by a more detailed press release from AFC in the coming weeks.
