Joliette – Seven amateur MMA fights will take place Saturday night at the Centre de Loisir Jolodium. The match-ups will all feature fighters from the Kanreikai MMA school, led by Sensei Dominic Morin, who is hosting the event. Amateurs from four other schools will serve as opponents.
Originally expected to be Jason Courchesne‘s amateur finale, the 24 year-old will not feature on the card after his opponent pulled out last week. Finishing his amateur career at 10-2, the welterweight will instead go straight to making his professional debut in three weeks at Rising Star 3 in Montreal’s Club Soda.
