The all-new Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam plays host to BFL 33 this Friday night and fans are in for a treat.
Former BFL Amateur Heavyweight Champion Adam Santos make his return to the cage in his sophomore pro outing against Arjan Bhullar.
The heavyweight main event will put Bhullar to the test after his lone amateur fight went to the judges scorecards and Santos has an edge in experience. If the people in attendance think this one will be a wrestle-fest, as Bhullar is a former Olympian, they are completely wrong. Santos has some of the best boxing and jiu-jitsu in BC and if Bhullar gets this fight to the mat, you can expect some serious ground and pound.
Welterweights Ash Mashreghi and Yannick Paré square off in the co-main event. Mashreghi went 0-3 to start his professional career, but since returning to the BFL cage has gone 3-0. Paré will look to get his first win under the BFL banner on Friday night.
Local sensation Micah Brakefield will welcome the former Amateur Middleweight Champion Jared Revel to the pro rankings. Revel has been out of MMA action since December 2013, whereas Brakefield is coming off a spectacular submission finish last month.
Other notable fights on the card are Alexi Argyriou vs. David Moon, who are both making their pro debuts, as well as the amateur featherweight title fight between Nick Ghaeni and Gagan Gill.
