Drew Fickett, who has won five straight via submission, was supposed to fight for the vacant MFC lightweight title on this card until scheduled opponent Hermes Franca was forced out due to serious criminal allegations. One-time Sengoku and UFC competitor Brian Cobb will step in, but the belt will not be on the line.
Former UFC fighter Marcus Davis debuted successfully with the MFC in April, defeating Curtis Demarce via split decision and the 37-year-old will look to string together back-to-back wins when he faces experienced striker Pete Spratt in a welterweight showdown. Davis previously met Spratt in April 2007 at UFC 69 where he submitted Spratt with an achilles lock.
