Bercier-Silva Set for MFC 36: Reality Check on Feb. 15

Fight Network Staff / January 15, 2013 - 6:10pm

The Maximum Fighting Championship has finalized its main-card lineup for MFC 36: Reality Check with a newly signed middleweight bout.

Jay "Da Spyda Killa" Silva will now take on Leo "Bushido" Bercier in one of three middleweight clashes slated for the MFC 36 main card. The strength and depth of the MFC's 185-pound division will certainly be on display as the Silva/Bercier encounter is joined on the card by the MFC middleweight title fight pitting defending champion Elvis "The King" Mutapcic against "Smilen" Sam Alvey, plus the meeting between Jason "The Savage" Zentgraf versus Luke "Hayabusa" Harris.

All three fights will be featured on the AXS TV Fights card airing live from the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, on Friday, February 15, beginning at 10 p.m. ET/8 p.m. MT/7 p.m. PT (check local listings for channel designation).

Bercier (7-2-1, 1 NC) enters the MFC having won two of his last three outings – both victories coming by knockout. The Missoula, Montana, product holds six career wins via knockout, and six of his seven verdicts have come inside the opening round. Bercier (Twitter: @LBercier) steps in to replace previously announced Jacen Flynn, who chose to back out of the fight.

Silva (Twitter: @jaysilvamma) will be making his long-awaited organizational debut and he enters the MFC ring having won three of his last five fights including the biggest victory of his career. Silva (8-6), who fights out of Huntington Beach, California, is coming off a stellar second-round submission of Kendall Grove.

The six-fight main card for MFC 36 live on AXS TV Fights is now set with the following bouts:

Graham Spencer (9-1, 1 NC) vs. Mukai Maromo (8-2), MFC lightweight title

Sam Alvey (19-4, 1 NC) vs. Elvis Mutapcic (12-2), MFC middleweight title
