Martin Desilets currently carries a four-fight win streak, including back-to-back first round TKO victories over Victor Valimaki. He earned the Fight Club light heavyweight championship with his most recent victory over Valimaki. Desilets last defeat was to Travis Galbraith by triangle choke back in June of 2008.

Canadian MMA veteran, Steve Vigneault returns to fighting after being absent from the sport for over a year. This will be only his third appearance in the cage since 2006. Vigneault defeated Dan Chambers by first round TKO in his last appearance back in November of 2009 for Ringside MMA.
