CHRISTMAS COMES EARLY ON DECEMBER 12, 2014: HARD KNOCKS FIGHTING IS PROUD TO PRESENT HK 40 LIVE FROM THE CENTURY CASINO!
Since the holidays are right around the corner, Hard Knocks Fighting would like to share this exciting news as an early gift to some of the best fans any MMA organization could ask for: HK40 is scheduled for December 12, 2014 and will have another electrifying main event between two of the most skilled mixed-martial artists in the world!
CLAY DAVIDSON vs. RODNEY “SHO NUFF THE MASTER” WALLACE
This title fight will pit a former UFC contender against another warrior of the cage! These two have both paid their dues to get here. When they enter the cage on December 12th, they will be fighting for all the glory in this action-filled event!
Clay Davidson is a veteran of the cage and has been fighting professionally since 2007. Davidson brings a 9-7-0 record into HK 40 and won his last fight on October 3, 2014 by first round submission. To say this Penticton, British Columbia fighter is a submission expert might be a bit of an understatement given the fact that all nine of his wins are by submission. Guillotine choke, Kimura, Rear-Naked Choke are just a few of Davidson’s specialties used to finish previous opponents.
Rodney “Sho Nuff The Master” Wallace has been kicking butt and taking names professionally since 2008. Wallace made it all the way to the finale of the Ultimate Fighter 10! He went on to fight several times in the UFC and for Bellator MMA. His fight at UFC 111 was selected as “Fight of the Night.” At HK 40, “The Master” will enter the cage for the 32nd time in his career with a respectable record of 21-9-1! Wallace will surely be looking to show the crowd at HK40 why he is known as “The Master,” so you will definitely want to make plans to see this MMA legend in action on December 12, 2014!
SAM FRANCHI vs. BINDERPAUL NANARA
Two undefeated mixed martial artists will be fighting for the vacant Amateur Flyweight title at HK 40. Fighting out of Calgary, Alberta will be Sam Franchi who won his debut match back in June 2014 when that fight went the distance and he earned the victory by unanimous decision. Franchi trained with MMA University to prepare for this upcoming match.
Vancouver, British Columbia fighter Binderpaul Nanara trained with Iron City Muay Thai in anticipation of HK 40. Nanara also won his debut fight back in May 2014 by TKO in the second round.
The pace of this fight is guaranteed to be fast and furious as these two up-and-coming fighters battle for the title so early in their careers! This will make for an exciting conclusion to a thrilling card of amateur fights at HK 40, so get your tickets in advance!
