Current and former MCC champs to brawl for featherweight belt
By Aaron Young
We’re a little under three months until MCC 59, but the buzz revolving around June’s fight night is at an all-time high.
You can thank the co-main event fighters in seasoned veteran T.J. O’Brien (21-7) and featherweight champion Eric Howser (8-2) for that, as the pair go knuckle-to-knuckle for the 145 pound championship belt.
Even the former and current champ are excited for their matchup.
“T.J. is undoubtedly the most talented fighter I have been matched up against,” Howser said. “He is tall and long, and his ground game is phenomenal. Defending my title against such a seasoned veteran will be a great test of not only my skill level, but also my will and determination.”
