World Championship Fighting today announced four featured fights for their WCF 10 event, scheduled to take place June 11 from the Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington, MA. Fresh of a stunning knock out win at WCF 9, Wilmington’s own Dan Bonnell takes on WCF new comer Christian Rivera. Christian is a veteran of over 10 mixed martial arts fights, and though the majority of his wins have come by submission, Christian has been known to stand and bang. The combination of these two will make for a very exciting fight on June 11.
Boneyard Fighter Dave Gilrein is also set to make his WCF debut, and he takes on Aniss Alhajjajy. After a long layoff, Gilrein made his return to action in February 2010, and won a dominant decision at 170 pounds. He moves back down to his more natural 155 pound weight class to take on a buzz saw in Alhajjajy. Alhajjajy has looked fantastic in his two prior WCF fights, and looks to keep his streak alive against Gilrein.
Joe Dechaves will also make his WCF debut, and he takes on Noah Weisman. Joe is 3-2 overall, and has shown great submission skills and a mean streak in the ring. Weisman started his WCF career with two dominant wins, and he gave John Benoit all he could handle at WCF 9. These are two of the most exciting up and comers in the area and you don’t want to miss this.
Fresh of his best performance to date, 7-time WCF veteran Stephen Stengel looks to give highly touted WCF new comer Scott Nichols a rude awakening. Stengel is best known for heavy hands and big knockouts, and he was very impressive in his submission victory over previously undefeated Mike Zichelle at WCF 9. He is set to face yet another undefeated prospect in Sit Yod Tong’s Scott Nichols. Nichols is only 19 years old, but has already defeated some of the best 185 pound fighters in New England. Now he’s set to enter into Stengel’s home turf and look to keep his undefeated streak alive.
More fights are expected to be announced in the next week, and you do not want to miss this event. World Championship Fighting also launched their new interactive website, and it’s flat out incredible.
