MMA fans should expect fireworks on the nights crowning of their first bantamweight champion.
Birchak (1-0 MFC, 10-1 MMA) is coming off a decision win over Ryan Benoit at MFC 37 in a fight some have dubbed “one of the best fights of all time.” The Birchak/Benoit fight certainly has to be top contender for the MFC’s 2013 Fight of the Year. Birchak is on a four fight winning streak with three knockouts and five submissions in his young career.
Jones (10-6 MMA, 0-0 MFC) will be making his MFC debut. The 32 year old is riding a 3 fight winning streak and is 3-3 in his last six fights. Two out of three of his previous wins have went to decision winning his last fight by a close split. His most impressive win as of late was a 21-second knockout of Deven Jones over a year ago. Jones has all the tools to make this a great fight and again, fans should be in for a war.
