Lashley, Prangley, Eastman and others weigh-in for MFC 21: 'Hard Knocks'

Maximum Fighting Championships (MFC) today held the official weigh in for "Hard Knocks," which is an event set to go down from the River Cree Resort and Casino tomorrow evening (Friday, May 15).

MFC 21: "Hard Knocks" features a ton of familiar names and faces, including former WWE star Bobby "The Dominator" Lashley (2-0), stepping into the ring against Frank Shamrock-trained Mike Cook (7-3) prior to his colossal pay-per-view (PPV) clash against Bob Sapp set for Prize Fight Promotions on June 27.

In the main event, reigning light heavyweight champ Emanuel Newton (13-3) will defend his title for the first time against the well-traveled Trevor Prangley (19-5). Prangley, who is originally from Cape Town, South Africa, has won eight of his last nine fights and holds career wins over such notables as Ultimate Fighter reality show winner Travis Lutter, Yuki Kondo and Chael Sonnen.

Two light heavyweight bouts will also be front and center at "Hard Knocks:" David Heath (11-4), who is coming off an electrifying victory over former MFC champion Roger Hollett at MFC 20, will match up against rugged Travis "The Gladiator" Galbraith (16-6) and the always-explosive Aron "The Poster Boy" Lofton (6-1) takes on heavy-handed Marvin "The Beastman" Eastman (15-9).

It should be a great night of mixed martial arts action indeed -- be sure to check it out if you can.
