Boston Mass. September 9, 2009 - World Championship Fighting (WCF) today announced the full fight card for its upcoming show at the Aleppo Shriner's Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass., on Sept. 26.
WCF fighter John Benoit takes yet another tough fight when he takes on American Top Team’s Hitalo Machado. Benoit was very impressive in his recent win at WCF 7 over Damien Trites and will look to keep the train rolling against Machado.
Machado makes his WCF debut, but is no stranger to the local fans. He’s a Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt and is also an accomplished striker. This highly anticipated fight is sure to please.
Trites will also make his return to WCF after his war with Benoit when he takes on Noah Weisman. Noah was impressive in his pro debut with WCF, beating Steve Beck by submission in the first round.
Trites will be a big step up in competition for him, but Weisman is looking to get in there with the very best fighters the WCF can give him. Trites is looking for a rematch with Benoit, and a win here could set that fight up.
