Benoit and Birchak engaging in war of words leading to MFC 37



What started out as some heated verbal jousting on the Maximum Fighting Championship website has escalated into an ongoing Twitter war between Ryan “Baby Face” Benoit and Anthony Birchak.

The two will engage in the MFC’s first-ever major bout in the bantamweight division at MFC 37: True Grit on Friday, May 10. Their matchup is one of the highlights of the main card airing live on AXS TV Fights from the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, beginning at 10 p.m. ET/8 p.m. MT/7 p.m. PT (check local listings for channel designation).

Benoit (Twitter: @babyfacebenoit) and Birchak (Twitter: @abirchakMMA) initially did some mutual calling out in respective preview stories on www.maximumfighting.com. It has since carried over into what would have to be considered the MFC’s first fighter Twitter war and earned the hash tag #BWBrawl. The two will settle their issues at MFC but in the meantime, Texas native Benoit (6-1) and Tucson, Arizona’s Birchak (9-1) are firing off uppercuts, high kicks, and armbars via social media – some of which has even involved Birchak’s manager/fiancée Mercedes White.
