Edmonton, AB – Widely considered the epicenter for mixed martial arts in Canada with no less than six promotions originating from the prairie province, Alberta will add yet another marquee organization to its burgeoning list when Aggression MMA touches down at the Agricom in Edmonton on October 24.
Aggression will hit the ground running with its inaugural show which will feature a cast of former UFC fighters including Jason Lambert, Matt Horwich, Xavier Foupa-Pokam (Professor X), Travis "The Ironman" Fulton, Doug Evans, and Jason "Bonecracker" Fairn, as well as well known fighters such as Cyrille "The Snake" Diabate, Nick Denis, and Nick Ring.
Also on the card will be MuchMusic personality and rocker-turned-mixed-martial-artist Robin Black. Having won the Elite 1 bantamweight title in July, Black will be looking to raise his record above .500 when he faces one of his toughest challenges to date in scrappy local fighter Corey Lautischer.
