Elite 1 MMA "Showdown" Preview

Poster coming soon! 

Elite 1 MMA and Fight Night at the Casino debut on the GFL Combat Sports Network with “Showdown” on May 5 live from the Casino New Brunswick Moncton.  The 10-bout card will feature some of the rising prospects and top talent from the area and include 2 Title Fights. “Showdown” ill pack the house so if you can’t be there live, the only way to see this stacked event is to watch it on 

In the main event, and a unification bout, Richard Arsenault (4-2) of Wellington, PE defends his Elite 1 MMA Welterweight Championship against tough challenger and interim champion Meneka Weva (2-3) of Moncton, NB.  The two fighters have history as Arsenault defeated Weva in 2011 by rear naked choke and looks to do the same thing again and prove he is the sole champion at 170 lb.  For Weva, this is a shot not only at a title, but more importantly at redemption.  The first bout was close, but Arsenault did just enough to turn the tide in the middle of the bout and get Weva to tapout.  Weva believes he now has the right game plan to defeat the champion.  In all, only one fight between the two has ever gone to a decision.  Both athletes fight with a high risk-high reward style with both fighters looking to finish the fight at all times, even if that means being in compromising positions themselves.  Expect fireworks from this rematch.  

In the co-main event, for the vacant Elite 1 MMA Lightweight Title, Adam Hazelton (3-1) of Yarmouth, NS fights Stephen Clementi (3-1) of Elsipogtog, NB.  Hazelton packs a heavy punch as all 3 of his wins have come via TKO or ref stoppage.  He is a fighter that likes to bang and once he sees his opponent is in danger he pounces on him like a Great White shark.  Clementi is also a fast starter and has finished all 3 of his wins by TKO or submission.  The lightweights pack great power combined with devastating speed.  Expect Hazelton and Clementi to be in line for “fight of the night” when the event is over.   

Don’t miss this exciting 10-bout card.  Elite 1 MMA brings you a fully loaded card with “Showdown”.  Watch the hottest Canadian prospects compete in the Elite 1 MMA cage.  Order this event now, exclusively through the GFL Combat Sport Network at
