Schmit vs. Vojvodic added to stacked Hard Knocks Fighting 40 fight card on Dec. 12 in Calgary

This will be an epic clash between two rising fighters. Vojvodic is currently coming off a submission victory over Ian Perron just this past March.

You couldn’t ask for a better co-main event matchup than the one you can witness on December 12, 2014, at HK 40! Canadian Middleweight Josh “Dirty Dawg” Griffin looks to continue his winning ways in the cage at HK 40 against Gabriel Vian. The “Dirty Dawg” will bring a three fight winning streak into this event and has an overall professional record of 3-2-0.

Standing in the way of “Dirty Dawg’s” winning streak will be mixed martial artist veteran of the cage Gabriel Vian fighting out of the United States. Vian won his first professional fight back in 2008 and has a record of 3-1-0. Vian has not fought since he won his last match in 2012.

Will the “Dirty Dawg” win his fourth consecutive fight in a row? Either way, this match will make for an exciting transition into the HK 40 main event! Gabriel Vian has a track record of pushing the action early and knocking opponents out before the clock even reaches 1:00 in the first round! However, if history is any indicator for Josh Griffin, he could try to stretch this one out into the later rounds in an attempt to wear down Vian and rely upon his submission expertise.

The scale is so evenly balanced in this one that it is nearly impossible to pick a favourite. The hometown crowd might just carry enough weight to tip the scale enough for the “Dirty Dawg” to win his fourth straight fight, so if you want to know the outcome as it happens just simply stream this event live on PPV, or get yourself and those hard to buy for family members or friends some tickets to HK 40 as an early gift for the holidays!



Just when you thought the fight card couldn’t get any better, HK 40 will feature another battle of the UNDEFEATED! Mac Laursen of the SMASH Combat will aim to improve upon his flawless 2-0 record on December 12th. Laursen won his debut amateur match back in June at HK 37 and quickly followed that up with another victory at HK 38.

Troy Dunne didn’t waste any time in his amateur debut fight at HK 38 back in October where he submitted his opponent by Keylock in just 37 seconds into the first round! Dunne prepared with the Elite Training Centre and will do anything to improve his record to 2-0 at HK 40.

Since neither of these fighters want a loss on their records so early in their careers, and a win here would most likely ensure a title fight in the very near future, this will be one of the most thrilling and unpredictable matches of the night!

Join us at Calgary’s Century Casino on December 12th. The MMA action begins at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:00 pm). Tickets are now available online through Ticketfly and from select fighters and their clubs.
