Marvin Eastman signs three-fight deal with MFC

Marvin Eastman (15-9-1), who made his MMA debut in 2000 with a victory over Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, has signed a three-fight deal with Canada's Maximum Fighting Championship promotion.

Eastman trains with the Lewis-Pederneiras Value Tudo camp in Las Vegas and will be returning to light-heavyweight. His last four fights were at middleweight and he went 2-2.

Eastman fought in Canada in his last fight, but with the Raw Combat promotion, and lost to current UFC middleweight Denis Kang via TKO in 48 seconds. He was let go by the UFC after a first-round TKO loss to Drew McFederies at "The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale" last June. Eastman's most recent win was in February 2008 against Terry Martin at UFC 81.

Eastman intends on stringing together wins with the MFC and then finish his career back with the UFC.

Eastman is scheduled to make his MFC debut at the HDNet-televised MFC 21 "Hard Knocks" on May 15 at the the River Cree Resort and Casino near Edmonton.
