Press Release – 18 December 2012 – The Maximum Fighting Championship has added another strong talent to its lightweight division with the signing of Canadian standout Kurt Southern.

Southern (10-3) will make his organizational debut at MFC 36: Reality Check on Friday, February 15 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, product will be part of the main card airing live on AXS TV Fights with his opponent to be determined in the near future.

“I’m really excited to fight for the MFC on AXS TV,” said Southern, who agreed to a multi-fight deal. “It’s a huge opportunity for me. The MFC puts on awesome shows and I can’t wait to be part of that.

“I’m coming to the MFC to put the hurt on the lightweight division. I can’t wait to make an impact in the division. Fans can expect an aggressive style from me – non-stop pressure.

“I want the belt and sometime in 2013, Mark Pavelich will be strapping that belt to my waist.”

Southern (Twitter: @kurtsouthern) carries the third three-fight winning streak of his career into the MFC, with the current run bolstered by a first-round submission victory over Mukai Maromo, who will be the co-headliner at MFC 36 as he takes on Graham Spencer for the MFC’s 155-pound division title. Southern’s current streak includes wins over Jorge Britto and Brad Cardinal, and he has picked up notable career victories over Martin Grandmont, Evan Sanguin, and Kevin Manderson.

Six of Southern’s wins have come by submission where he has put his substantial wrestling background to good use. Southern captured 13 provincial titles and was a five-time medalist at nationals before suiting up with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies wrestling team for two years.

Tickets for MFC 36: Reality Check are on sale now and available via or by calling the MFC Ticket Hotline at (780) 504-2024.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
