AFC 19: Tim Chemelli plans to derail comeback for Dwayne “D-Bomb” Lewis on July 5

Dwayne “D-Bomb” Lewis and his Lewis army look to make an impact July 5th at AFC 19: UNDISPUTED in Edmonton Alberta Canada. Lewis is mounting what many called an insurmountable comeback after a severe back injury forced Lewis into retirement. His resilience and determination to do what he loves and fight only the best has lead to him to the AFC cage. Across the cage will stand the man looking to disappoint the throngs of Lewis fans, Tim Chemelli.

Many AFC fans will remember the utter grit and heart Chemelli has demonstrated in his 4 fights with the AFC. “Tim Chemelli is the epitome of class and the prototype of what every MMA fighter should be. Tim had a major injury coming into the Valimaki fight but chose to keep it hidden and fight for the fans. Now he’s stepping up on short notice to save this fight. This just demonstrates what a great ambassador Tim is for MMA and The AFC” stated Darren Owen AFC matchmaker.

When asked about his opponent , Dwayne Lewis had this to say “I’m super disappointed that the fans won’t see Me and Valimaki throw down but I can’t say I’m surprised. That being said the fans won’t be disappointed that big Tim Chemelli has stepped up. Tim as an opponent is as tough as nails and will come to throw bombs- I like that, much respect to Tim, it will be fireworks.”

Chemelli ‘s management had this to say “Tim is extremely happy with how well the AFC has treated him and out of respect for the organization he accepted this fight. Tim also has a ton of respect of Dwayne Lewis. Tim knows the Lewis army would be disappointed if he didn’t have an opponent July 5th. Tim will show up mentally and physically ready and he will honor his commitment to Dwayne Lewis and the AFC. Tim Chemelli is an old school figher.”

This fight card also features Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford battling TUF alum Michael “The Messenger” Hill for the vacant AFC Welterweight belt and Jesse “The Body Snatcher” Ronson challenging AFC Lightweight Champion Shane “Shaolin” Campbell.
