Montreal, Canada, May 9th 2017 – One more fight was added to the prelims of June 16th’s TKO39 card as bantamweights Tyler Wilson (2-0-0) and Eric Daigneault (2-3-0) will go to war for the second time. Wilson was dominant in his rear naked choke submission win over Daigneault last April and will want to prove once again he is the better fighter. Wilson burst on the TKO scene with a spectacular win over top-ranked prospect Louis Jourdain in January and has been very impressive since then. Daigneault also made his TKO debut in January when he scored a “knock-out of the night” performance against Jonas Rubiano. Daigneault wanted to pull-out of his fight against Wilson in April when he was faced with serious personal problems with his mother being transported to intensive care the night before the weigh-in. He eventually decided to take the fight anyway but his heart and his mind was somewhere else come fight night. This will be his opportunity to prove that the April result was wrong.

TKO39 will be live from St-Roch de l’Achigan, Quebec, Canada, 20 minutes north of Montreal at Complexe JC Perreault on June 16th 2017 and will feature tournaments in the woman 115 pound division, and in the men’s heavyweight division. Both the prelims and the main card will be televised live on UFC FIGHT PASS worldwide and from coast to coast in Canada on the FIGHT NETWORK. Replays will then be available in French on RDS2.
