Quebec City, Quebec (Canada), Wednesday August 8th 2018 – In just two days, the TKO organization will announce live from Centre Vidéotron in Quebec City the lineup for its much anticipated TKO44 event that will take place on Friday September 21st live worldwide on UFC FIGHT PASS.
The event will be headlined by TKO undisputed middleweight (185 lbs) champion MARC-ANDRE BARRIAULT (10-1-0, 7 KO) who will have the chance to emulate what one of his idols did in the UFC, as just like Daniel Cormier, he could become a simultaneous champion in two weight classes. Barriault will fight for the vacant light-heavyweight title (205 lbs) against an opponent to be announced Friday.
The co-main event will be a clash of gigantic heavyweights as TKO heavyweight champion CIRYL GANE (1-0-0, 1 SUB in MMA and 13-0-0, 8 KO in professional Muay Thai) will defend his belt against fan favourite ADAM DYCZKA (7-0-0, 7 KO). Gane won the title in just 1:42 against a very tough Bobby Sullivan, whom gave Dyczka all he could handle back in June of 2017 in a 6:11 war that saw the referee stop the fight after Sullivan suffered a tear in his biceps.
TKO champions JESSE RONSON and JESSE ARNETT will also be in action at TKO44. Tickets are already on sale by calling 1-855-790-1245 or by visiting the official web page of Centre Vidéotron!
