Hard Knocks Fighting Championship 35
Fri Apr 25 9:00PM ET
Canada’s top MMA promotion returns as Hard Knocks Fighting presents “HK 35”, on April 25 at the Century Casino in Calgary. Hard Knocks Fighting is the fastest growing promotion in Canada with shows in Calgary, Medicine Hat, Regina, Estevan, Prince Albert, and expanding quickly to new cities. The action packed 13 bout pro/am card will feature many of the top up and coming superstars of the Great White North.
In the main event, in the pro ranks, in a lightweight battle Rolando Cespedes (3-1) from Fight Syndicate in Las Vegas, Nevada battles Terry Nichol (2-2) of MMA University in Calgary. Cespedes has won all 3 of his fights by stoppage and his lone loss was via decision. Cespedes comes from a strong camp and trains with some of the best fighters in the world. Look for Cespedes to come out aggressive in the opening bell and take the fight to Nichol. Nichol looks to bounce back in this fight after dropping two straight. Nichol is a gamer and none of his fights have ever gone to decision because he chooses to fight with a high risk-high reward style. Don’t blink when these two 155 lb fighters lock horns.
Pat Gionette (1-2) from Independent in Mississauga takes on Josh Griffin (2-2) from PMA Karate in Calgary in a middleweight tilt. Gionette has never been out of the second round and loves to throw punches in bunches. Look for Gionette to come out swinging and not stop until somebody gets knocked out. Griffin is just as eager to bring the fight as none of his fights have ever gone to decision either. Griffin is a grappler who goes for transition after transition which usually sets up space to pull off submissions for either him or his opponent. This fight looks to be an early candidate for fight of the night.
Former multi division amateur title holder Devon Smith (0-0) of Prestige Worldwide in La Ronge makes his pro debut at middleweight against Justin Schmit (1-1) of MMA University in Calgary. Smith jumped weight classes regularly fighting at both heavyweight and light heavyweight but has now settled in at 185 lb, making him even more dangerous in the division. All of his amateur wins came via stoppage or submission. Power in both hands, Smith loves to bring the action to his opponent and can always be found in the center of the cage ready to trade strikes. Smith is known around Canada for chopping down huge opponents in the cage. Schmit won his last fight via TKO and has proven an ability to hurt just about anyone he faces with his fists. Schmit must be careful if the fight hits the mat as that is where Smith is dangerous. Look for Schmit to keep his distance and try to score on the outside with combos.
Don’t miss this electrifying event featuring Western Canada’s finest MMA athletes as Hark Knocks Fighting presents “HK 35” on April 25 in front of a packed house.

Haller has hands of dynamite and looks to put Styler’s lights out.
Chance Chin (3-2) fights James Soiland (3-1) in another highly anticipated tussle. Chin has won his last 3 fights in impressive fashion and looks to keep the momentum going against a gritty opponent in Soiland.

CFFC has expanded their stranglehold on Northeast MMA as they continue to pump out one blockbuster show after another.
In the main event, CFFC Featherweight Champion Scott Heckman (17-4) defends his title against the undefeated Levan Makashvili (7-0). Heckman is an expert grappler with a strong wrestling base, but also likes to throw hands and is dangerous from anywhere in the cage. He is one of the top 145 lb fighters in the world and will continue to come forward no matter what. Heckman is as exciting as they come, and that is why he continues to be a fan favorite wherever he fights. Makashvili is a knockout specialist with an astounding 4 KOs in 7 fights. Makashvili loves to bang and he can end a fight with one punch from either hand. Look for these two to collide in the center of the cage with explosive consequences. Hands will be flying and these two are bound to blow the roof off with their style of fighting.
In the co-main event, Mike Winters (7-3) takes on Jonavin Webb (5-0) in a welterweight tussle. Winters has dominated former opponents with his well-rounded striking mixed with impressive takedowns that keep his opponents on the defensive. Once on the ground, Winters is very active, advancing his position, landing strikes and pushing the pace. Webb is a blue chip prospect from New Jersey and has never tasted defeat in either his pro or amateur career as a mixed martial artist. Webb is a submission specialist and if the fight hits the mat he will be comfortable in any position the fight goes. Look for Webb to try and outwrestle Winters in the early going and get the fight to the ground where he can work his grappling game.
In other action, Jimmie Rivera (12-1) fights Cody “The Wolverine” Stevens (11-6-1). Rivera, a Bellator and TUF vet has faced a who’s who of the East Coast’s best, is on a 4 fight win steak. Rivera will look to utilize his strong wrestling base to nullify Stevens’ attacks. Stevens’ last fight was in Japan for the top organization in Asia, ONE Fighting. Stevens returns to the United States ready to raise his stock on his home soil. A victory over Rivera would do just that. Stevens is relentless in the cage, and mirrors Rivera’s fighting style in that both fighters are strong wrestlers who never get tired and like to push the pace. Look for Stevens to try and score with some ground and pound if the fight hits the mat and he is on top. This fight could main event most cards on the regional level so fans are in for a treat.

Sparta Combat League returns on GFL with “Army VS Marines”, a stacked MMA card on April 26 from the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland, Colorado. This event promises to be full speed from bell to bell as these pros and amateurs will do battle in the cage.
The SCL Bantamweight Title will be on the line when Josh “Hellboy” Huber (11-7) fights Ricky “Furioso” Johnson (10-4). This will be a rematch as Huber defeated Johnson via split decision in 2013. Huber is a scrappy fighter who has won 3 of his last 4. Huber looks to add to his championship collection with a win here. Huber is an aggressive fighter who always comes right at his opponent. Look for Huber to waste no time and bring the fight to Johnson. Johnson won his last fight and is anxious to get back in the cage with Huber and bring home the gold. Johnson believes he won the first fight and aims to not leave it in the hands of the judges this time. Expect Johnson to try and get the fight to the mat where he can work for a submission.
In a 185lb Pro Thai fight, Sgt US Army Charlie Brown takes on Brian Scraper. Brown likes to close the distance in his fights and let his hands go. Expect Brown to walk forward and try and avoid strikes by throwing hooks and uppercuts of his own. Brown’s best weapons are his fists and he has a granite chin to go along with dynamite in his hands. Look for Scraper to stay on the outside where he can let his high kicks and straight right hands go. If Brown does get inside, expect Scraper to be waiting with knees in the clinch.
Shannon Sinn (0-0) battles Courtney Himes (0-1). This will be Sinn’s pro debut after she captured the SCL Flyweight title in her last fight. Sinn is unyielding with her pressure as she will look to mix up her attacks and get Himes off balance. Expect Sinn to throw everything but the kitchen sink at Himes as Sinn is known for her wrestling, grappling and standup game. Himes is looking for her first pro win and plans to match Sinn’s activity inside the cage as Himes is known for a motor that never quits. Himes is a skilled striker and her grappling is underrated. Look for Himes to make this a brawl in the opening seconds.

In the main event, for the Conflict MMA Heavyweight Title, Champion Nick Smiley (6-2) fights Adrian Henderson (4-0). Smiley won the title last May after a TKO victory in less than a minute. Smiley has a well-rounded game including some solid submissions for a heavyweight. His ground and pound is where he is most dangerous as he drops hammers with both fists.

Don’t blink when these two lightweights start throwing bombs in the cage.
In other action, Lindsay Rowse (4-3) takes on Arnold Adams (2-6) at heavyweight. Rowse is a fast starter and is always in attack mode as he is constantly looking for a KO or submission if the fight hits the mat. Rowse is usually a light heavyweight so this fight he will be significantly smaller but quicker. Adams is a heavy puncher and can turn the tide of a fight or even end a fight with a single punch.
