Montreal, Quebec (Canada), Tuesday January 8, 2019 – TKO president Stephane Patry went straight to the point when talking about what was coming in 2019 for TKO in a press conference held in Quebec City last month; “When I decided to bring back TKO, the goal was to get to a point where we would offer our fans dream fights and super fights at every event. We needed time to build the stars and create the storylines… We accomplished that with the Jourdain/Morgan clash at TKO45, we are again delivering with Pessoa/Gane at TKO46 and there is a lot more to come in 2019…

Well, TKO sets the bar to a whole new level as it was announced today that TKO Featherweight champion Charles “Air” Jourdain (8-1-0, 5 KO, 2 submissions) will challenge TKO’s two division champion Jesse “The Body Snatcher” Ronson (20-8-0, 10 KO, 6 submissions) for his lightweight crown! Both coming off “performance of the year” and “fight of the year” display in they last outing, they will offer TKO fight fans a dream matchup between two of the best athletes in the sport of MMA. Ronson is a savvy veteran who can do it all in the cage while Jourdain is one of the brightest up and comers in the sport. Expect fireworks when these two meet in the center of the octagon!

TKO47: JOURDAIN vs. RONSON will take place in April in a location to be announced shortly!
