AN EXPLOSIVE NIGHT OF MMA ACTION IN VICTORIAVILLE!
(MONTREAL, CANADA) – May 26th 2006 – (VICTORIAVILLE, CANADA), May 25, 2006 – TKO Major League MMA is excited to make its return to the city which lives and breaths for the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Victoriaville! TKO 26: HEATWAVE will feature the best talent in Canadian MMA fighting their hearts out to move up proverbial ladder. This spectacular event will take place on Friday, June 30th, 2006 at the COLISEE DESJARDINS in the beautiful, quaint town of Victoriaville, Quebec. Canada Day may be the next day, but the fireworks are set to detonate the night before at TKO!
In the main event, Victoriaville’s heavy hitter, MARTIN DESILETS (4-0-0) will face the greatest challenge of his life! Desilets always manages to thrill the crowd with his aggressive fighting style and spectacular knockouts. He has amassed a perfect record in his young career and feels that it’s now time to take the next big step in his career. TKO has granted him his wish as a top notch International superstar, soon to be announced, will be coming to town looking to defeat Desilets in front of his home town supporters. The roars of the Victoriaville fans will be deafening as they cheer him on. Can Desilets win the big one? CHRIS HORODECKI (4-0-0) will square off against fellow TKO sensation, SAMUEL GUILLET (3-2-0). These are two of the best, young prospects in the TKO organization! Each brings something different with them into the ring. Horodecki is best known for his striking prowess while Guillet is renowned for his heart, well rounded skills and slick submission game. However, Horodecki’s ground game should be not overlooked as it was mainly because of his superior wrestling skills that he gained his last two victories. In contrast, Guillet was stopped in his last fight against an extremely tough, Jay Estrada. Guillet took that fight on a few days notice and will surely be looking to bounce back with what would be considered a huge win over Horodecki. Fireworks and excitement are guaranteed when these two young phenoms clash!
