MFC 28 Taking Shape With Jimmo vs. Lewis Title Fight and Addition of Glover vs. Washington

Maximum Fighting Championship is filling up its MFC 28 fight card, the promotion’s first of the New Year. MFC 28: Supremacy is slated for Feb. 25 at River Cree Resort & Casino in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

MFC logoA fight for the vacant MFC light heavyweight championship heads the card, pitting Ryan Jimmo vs. Dwayne Lewis. Both are Canadian and veterans of the promotion. Jimmo brings a 13-1 record into the fight, losing only the first professional bout of his career four years ago. Lewis, 13-6 overall, is 9-1 in has last 10 fights.

Officially added to the fight card on Tuesday is a bout pitting rising talents Tyrone Glover out the Grudge Training Center and the HIT Squad’s Robert Washington.

“He’s got a similar wrestling background. He’s got some very good jiu-jitsu, but I’m not afraid to go to the ground with him,” Washington detailed. “I’m not going to shoot right in on him but I think I’ll be fine if it goes to the ground because he won’t be able to hold me down.

“But I wouldn’t mind keeping it standing with him. I think my striking is at a level where I can go toe-to-toe with him. I think it’s a good matchup and it’s going to be an exciting fight.”

Glover, who also recently inked a multi-fight contract to join the MFC’s lightweight ranks, echoed his high anticipation for the bout.

“He’s a tough opponent. I’ll be there on Feb. 25 to throw down and put on a good show for the fans.”

Other bouts on the MFC 28 main card that airs on HDNet: Kajan Johnson vs. Richie Whitson, Razak Al-Hassan vs. Rodney Wallace, Thomas Denny vs. Sheldon Westcott, and one more bout still to be announced.
