The two fights top the marquee on Friday night’s show at the Mayfield Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, which will air live on HDNet Fights starting at 10 p.m. ET/8 p.m. MT/7 p.m. PT (check local listings for channel designation).

In the night’s other co-main event, electrifying veterans Pete “The Secret Weapon” Spratt (22-19) and “The Irish Hand Grenade” Marcus Davis (18-8) will square-off in a welterweight tilt that is a rematch of their 2007 bout that Davis took via a second-round submission.
