Now they can chose to watch Hard Knocks live from their PS4 or PS3.”

Light Heavyweight Title Fight
The headlining title bout features one of Canada’s top light heavyweight mixed martial artists, Misha Cirkunov (@Misha_Cirkunov), against Ultimate Fighting Championship and Bellator Fighting Championship veteran Rodney “ShoNuff The Master” Wallace (@Shonuffmma).

Cirkunov, 7-2, is originally from Latvia. He is only 28 years old and has only been fighting in the cage professionally since 2010. He trains out of Xtreme Couture in Toronto and his wins are a well-rounded mixture of knockouts and submissions.
“I don’t care who is in front of me, I am here to represent Canada,” Cirkunov said. “I can’t wait to get into the cage, I have heard nothing but good things about this promotion, they are helping out fighters and making things happen.”

Wallace, 22-9-1, is a record-breaking college running back from the United States and has racked up 32 professional MMA matches since his career began in 2008. He has battled against light heavyweights in both the UFC and Bellator cages. Wallace is 33 years old and trains with Team R.O.C. out of Charlotte, NC.
Wallace is a brawler and likes to battle it out for all three, or in this case five, rounds. His extensive professional MMA record gives him a massive experience advantage over Cirkunov, however Cirkunov hasn’t lost a fight since 2012 and Wallace has lost half of his last six bouts. Cirkunov is also younger and has a huge reach advantage, standing a whopping 6-foot-3 while Wallace stands at 5-foot-9.
