The Maximum Fighting Championship’s welterweight title bout set for MFC 33: Collision Course has been secured after both combatants stepped off the scale at the official weigh-in.

Nathan Coy (10-4), who fights out of American Top Team’s camp in Coconut Creek, Florida, hit the scale at 169.4 pounds, while rival Ryan McGillivray, fighting in his home town of Edmonton, Alberta, registered in at 169.6 pounds.

The MFC welterweight title match-up headlines Friday night’s card airing live on HDNet Fights from the Mayfield Conference Centre beginning at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

In a featured lightweight tilt, former U.S. Marine Adam Lynn (17-8), holder of the MFC’s 2011 Knockout of the Year award, weighed in at 154.2 pounds, and his opponent, Mukai Maromo (6-2), who captured the MFC’s 2011 Fight of the Year honor, stepped off at 155.6 pounds. The battle between Lynn and Maromo marks the first time in MFC history that back-to-back winners of the MFC’s Knockout of the Night will face each other.

UFC veteran Edwin Dewees came in 13 pounds overweight for his 195-pound catchweight bout with Luke Harris. He forfeits 20 percent of his fight purse. Andrew Buckland missed weight by two pounds for his 175-pound catchweight bout with Jamie Toney. He also forfeits 20 percent of his purse.

Diego Bautista was still en route to Edmonton, but will weigh-in before 5 p.m. MT.

Coy Claims MFC Welterweight Crown; Lynn, Maromo will rematch for lightweight title at MFC 34


Rematches and a clearer framework of the Maximum Fighting Championship’s title picture were the end results of a wild night of action at MFC 33: Collision Course.

Held before a sold-out crowd at the Mayfield Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, and live on HDNet Fights across the United States, MFC 33 was topped by a dominant performance from Nathan “Soul Force” Coy whose relentless attack proved to be far too much for Ryan “The Kid” McGillivray in their showdown for the MFC welterweight title.

Coy (11-4) savagely took apart McGillivray, bloodying him up by the end of the Round 1 and continuing to bash his opponent over the course of the next two frames. Referee Jerin Valel threatened to stop the bout on numerous occasions and had the ringside physician look over McGillivray three times. Finally at the end of Round 3, the doctor had seen enough and McGillivray (12-6-1) could take no more punishment from Coy’s ground-and-pound assault.

With the TKO stoppage, Coy, who trains out of the American Top Team camp in Coconut Creek, Florida, becomes the third title-holder of the MFC’s welterweight crown in the organization’s history.

“Exactly as I planned,” said Coy. “I’m very proud to wear this belt. Ryan’s a tough kid but my plan was to break him down and that’s what I did.”

Coy, who has now won three straight, will defend his title against an as-yet-to-be-named opponent at MFC 34: Brute Force on Friday, August 10.

Another title fight – this one in the lightweight division – has also been set for MFC 34 but under much different circumstances.

While the bout between “The Afrikan Assassin” Mukai Maromo and Adam Lynn will definitely go down as one of the MFC’s all-time best, it certainly ended on a highly controversial note. Maromo was handed a split-decision victory over Lynn much to the chagrin of those in attendance and in particular HDNet Fights color commentator Pat Miletich who called it “the worst decision I have ever seen.”

MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich and his staff quickly sought remedy for the situation, and announced that an immediate rematch would take place at MFC 34, but this time around, the organization’s lightweight title would be at stake. Maromo (7-2) will take a four-fight winning streak into the sequel, while Lynn (17-9) saw his six-fight streak come to a dubious end.

The rematch theme will continue on another front following a barn-burner that opened the HDNet Fights broadcast between middleweights Derek “The Lion” Parker and Jared McComb. Parker relied on his pugilistic background from hockey while McComb looked to exploit his foe’s inexperience. In the end both fighters were battered and bruised, and a first-round foul for an illegal upkick assessed to Parker resulted in a score of 28-28 from all three judges.

Parker (3-0-1) and McComb (4-1-1) will square-off again at MFC 34, as will lightweights Sabah Fadai and Diego Bautista after their battle at MFC 33 was halted just one minute in. Fadai (7-2) was guilty of a kneeing a downed opponent, and with Bautista (7-1) deemed unable to continue, the bout was declared a no-contest.

Also coming away victorious on the main card of MFC 33 was submission specialist Luke Harris, who picked up his ninth straight win and ninth in a row coming inside the first round by way of tapout as he stopped Edwin Dewees.

The well-traveled Dewees (37-16) did cause a momentary panic when he connected with a quick left hook to Harris’ jaw, but a spectacular judo toss by Harris (9-1) turned the fight in his favor and he rendered the verdict just 2:05 in with a guillotine choke.

Other results:

Jamie Toney (16-7) def. Andrew Buckland (15-9-1) – Unanimous decision

Matt Jelly (3-1) def. Garrett Nybakken (3-5) – Tapout via armbar, 2:01 Round 1

Josh Kitchen (5-1) def. Mike Scarcello (2-2-1) – Tapout via triangle choke, 2:27 Round 1

What do you expect? The comedian is dead.
