Shark Fights is ambitiously putting together their biggest show ever, and that’s saying something for the Texas promotion that has drawn huge live crowds for their cards already, but this could be the largest one yet.
As previously announced, Shark Fight signed on former UFC light heavyweight Keith Jardine to face Trevor Prangley in the main event, while Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou faces Houston Alexander in a co-main event contest.
As first reported on MMAWeekly.com last week, Joey Villasenor will square off against Drew McFedries, and top ten welterweight Paul Daley will return to the United States to appear on the card against an as of yet unannounced opponent.
The promotion has now also added several former UFC and WEC fighters to their line-up with new fights announced on Wednesday.
Brock Larson will return to action on the card, but an opponent has not been determined for the Minnesota native as of yet. Douglas Evans faces Ronnie Mann in a featherweight bout, while former WEC title contender Marcus Hicks returns home to Texas to face fellow WEC alum Karen Darabedyan.
Dave Herman, who is current embroiled in a contract dispute with Bellator Fighting Championships, will take a fight in the mean time against Aaron Rosa, and Pete Spratt returns to action to take on Eric Davilla.
The promotion has also teased that another major fight will be announced in the coming days to fill the fifth and final slot on the main card, that is expected to make a possible pay-per-view debut for the organization.
Shark Fights 13 takes place on Saturday, September 11 at the Amarillo Civic Center Colliseum with fights starting at 7:30pm CST.
