True Grit prelim matchup pits sibling heavyweights in anticipated matchup
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Maximum Fighting Championship is thrilled to announce that for the first time in the history of any major mixed martial arts promotion, two brothers will fight each other in a professional bout.
Thomas and Mike Treadwell, who are not only siblings but also live together, will battle in a heavyweight matchup on the undercard of MFC 37: True Grit taking place live at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, on Friday, May 10.
“Absolutely, undeniably, one of the craziest and most anticipated fights in MFC history,” said Mark Pavelich, Owner/President of the Maximum Fighting Championship.
“Who hasn’t wondered what it would be like to watch two brothers fight? I remember from my own childhood, the most violent fights I was ever involved in myself were against my brother. We’d practically tear the house down because I was the younger brother out to prove myself against the older brother.
“I have a distinct feeling Treadwell vs. Treadwell will have that ‘Prove who’s really the toughest’ mentality and be a spectacularly wild fight.” (more…)
