Luigi Fioravanti came in on short notice and defeated Canadian standout Stephan Potvin in the main event of the Apex Championship Fighting event this weekend in Quebec.
Potvin came into the match-up with a three-fight winning streak, but it was Fioravanti who earned the unanimous decision victory with scores of 29-28, 29-28, and 30-27 on the judges’ scorecards.
The 25-year-old Fioravanti was last seen losing to Chris Leben by decision on the UFC’s Ultimate Fight Night broadcast on Spike TV in early April. The loss to Leben had been the first in the MMA career of Fioravanti, whose MMA record is now 7-1 after his victory over Potvin.
