MFC 37 results: Anthony Birchak defeats Ryan Benoit in ‘True Grit' headliner

Maximum Fighting Championships (MFC) held its latest mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside the Shaw Conference Center in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, last night (May 10, 2013), featuring a bantamweight bout in the main event between Anthony Birchak and Ryan Benoit. Check out complete MFC 37 results below.

Maximum Fighting Championship's (MFC) thirty-seventh mixed martial arts (MMA) event is in the books as last night (May 10, 2013) the organization traveled to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, for MFC 37: "True Grit," which took place inside the Shaw Conference Center.

The event headliner was a bantamweight bout that saw Anthony Birchak and Ryan Benoit rouse the crowd for 15-minutes with a complete display of MMA action that included striking, grappling, submissions and ground-and-pound. After three hard-fought rounds, Birchak was awarded the decision victory to improve his professional record to 10-1, including five-straight wins.

Birchak will now fight for the vacant MFC bantamweight title against an unnamed opponent later this year.

The co-main event of the night was much quicker and more one-sided than the main event as hometown hero Luke Harris quickly submitted Jason Zentgraf with a neck crack just two minutes and 11 seconds into the first round.
