The Maximum Fighting Championship has announced that they’ve signed Mukai Maromo to a multi-fight contract that includes a championship bout agreement for MFC 36: Reality Check.
“All along my plan has been to become the MFC lightweight champ,” said Maromo in the official release. “I want to become the first Canadian-based fighter to win that belt. I want to make that mark, and then I want to defend the title successfully. After that I’ll see where my journey takes me next.”
Maromo will vie for the MFC lightweight title against Graham Spencer at MFC 36 scheduled for February 15 in Edmonton, Alberta. The two first met back in March 2010 at Era Fight Night where Spencer walked away with a unanimous decision.
Maromo will enter the bout with a mixed martial arts record of 9-2. Maromo is currently riding a five fight winning streak which includes victories over Adam Lynn, Sabah Fadai, Scott Cleve, and Tim Tamaki.
Spencer, a native of Nanaimo, British Columbia, possesses a mixed martial arts record of 9-1. Spencer is currently riding a four fight winning streak with victories over Shane Nelson, Shawn Albrecht, Bruno Capdeville, and Maromo.
