The Maximum Fighting Championship has added a showcase of light heavyweights to the card for MFC 28: Supremacy to be held Friday, February 25 on HDNet Fights.
Rodney "Sho Nuff the Master" Wallace (10-3) will square-off against "Razor" Razak Al-Hassan (11-3) in a main-card encounter. This fight could have implications on the night’s main event as well when Ryan "The Big Deal" Jimmo meets Dwayne "D-Bomb" Lewis for the MFC’s light heavyweight championship.
Wallace is fresh off a decisive three-round victory over David Heath at MFC 27 – a fight he took as a short-notice replacement but looked very solid in while making his organizational debut. Coming off that fight, the 26-year-old from Charlotte, North Carolina, signed a three-fight contract with the MFC which kicks off with his clash against Al-Hassan.
Al-Hassan, meanwhile, will be looking for a bit of redemption coming into the fight. In his organizational debut, which was also at MFC 27 and marked the start of a four-fight deal, Al-Hassan carried the bulk of the action but came up just short in a narrow split-decision loss to Lewis.
That setback ended a four-fight winning streak for the 28-year-old Milwaukee, Wisconsin, product.
"This is my fight – my year. 2010 ended on a sour note for me but 2011 will bring the sweet taste of victory once again," said Al-Hassan.
Wallace responded that he believes Al-Hassan won’t be tasting anything other than a bitter defeat. "I know after feeling like he got robbed (against Lewis) that he is going to be hungry but I’m at the top of the food chain," touted Wallace.
