MCC announces January 23 event, Rios and Schmauss return
With less than one week removed from one of the most memorable events to date, the Midwest’s most popular promotion has announced a return to Hy Vee Hall on January 23 for MCC 57. In addition, two of the most polarizing fighters to step foot in its cage; Todd Schmauss and Miguel “El Rey” Rios Jr, will make their long-awaited returns.
MCC’s matchmaker, John Halverson commented, “It’s going to tough to compete with the action and excitement from MCC 56, but if anyone can do it, the fighters on January’s card can do it. This is already shaping up to be another blockbuster show.”
Undefeated light heavyweight prospect, Todd Schmauss will face off against Moroccan native, Otmane Benjilany, while Miguel Rios will square up with Strikeforce veteran, Justin DeMoney
“The talent on our roster is incredible. This is truly what makes a show,” Halverson continued. “People come to MCC to watch great fights. That’s what we focus on. That’s what we intend to deliver.”
Damion Shehan, Jeremiah Deever, and Jordan Young, a fast-rising middleweight who scored a quick win at MCC 56, are all scheduled to compete on the January 23 fight card, while two amateur title bouts have been scheduled.
Additional fight announcements will be made in the upcoming days.
