On Saturday, November 5th, 2011, Victoria-based MMA promotion, Armageddon Fighting Championship, will be throwing their seventh mixed martial arts show at the Bear Mountain Arena (1767 Island Highway). It’s not exactly a Vancouver mixed martial arts event but it’s close enough, and there are some Vancouver and Lower Mainland MMA fighters on the card.
Karel Bergen and Mike Hill, both unbeaten after four fights, are looking to snap each other’s winning streak. Hill has recent wins over Nolan Clark at Battlefield Fight League 10 and over Mike Scarcello at Aggression MMA 8.
Paul Cheng, who has one win over Adam Querido at AFC 6, will be fighting Peter Nolan. Nolan also has a 1-0 record, having beaten Kris Miskenack via RNC at 3:38 of the first round at King of the Cage (September 18, 2010).
Nathan Swayze, fighting out of Courtenay, BC, will be looking to even his pro MMA record to 2-2 against Brad Robinson (0-1), a native of Newmarket, Ontario who relocated to BC and currently fights out of Port Coquitlam.
