WSOF 14: Inaugural Heavyweight Championship Bout

GameStop, Inc.

WSOF14LAS VEGAS (Sept. 10, 2014) — World Series of Fighting’s return to Canadian soil just became more of a must-see event as the organization is excited to announce the entire fight card for the live NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) televised event at the EXPO Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Saturday, Oct. 11, including the inaugural World Series of Fighting heavyweight championship bout and co-main event between fast-rising stars Smealinho “The Prince” Rama (8-1) of Calgary, Alberta Canada and Derrick “Caveman” Mehmen (18-5) of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

In the highly-anticipated main event, superstars Jake Shields (29-7-1) of San Francisco, Calif. and Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (22-4) of Edmonton will square off in a welterweight (170 pounds) matchup.

Riding a two-fight winning streak, the 22-year-old Canadian Rama halted the unbeaten run of standout grappler Steve Mocco in his World Series of Fighting Canada debut in February. “The Prince” has earned seven finishes in eight victories thus far in his promising career, all of them inside the first round of action.

Representing American Top Team, Mehman has posted six consecutive victories to earn this championship opportunity, the last three coming inside the World Series of Fighting decagon.  After scoring a memorable, second-round KO win over Rolles Gracie in his promotional debut, the 29-year-old reeled off back-to-back,  unanimous decision wins over Scott Barrett and Dave Huckaba to secure his place opposite Rama in this historic heavyweight tilt.

Also joining the main card is a featherweight (145 pounds) matchup between Chris Horodecki (20-5-1) of London, Ontario, Canada and Luis Huete (6-1) of Calgary, Alberta, Canada as well as a light heavyweight (205 pounds) contest between Misha Cirkunov (7-2) Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Teddy Holder (8-1) of Memphis, Tenn.

A pro for nearly a decade, the 26-year-old Horodecki has won two of his last three starts and proudly carries the Team Tompkins name into battle against Huete, a winner of three straight, with all six of his career wins by having come by (T)KO or submission.

Cirkunov is an elite grappler and national judo and wrestling champion who has established himself as someone to watch in the light heavyweight division. Making his World Series of Fighting debut, Holder has scored seven first-round KO finishes in his eight career victories.

In preliminary card action, Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and hometown favorite Luke Harris (10-2) of Edmonton will be looking to add another submission win to his resume when he faces hard-hitting road warrior Jared Hamman (13-6) of Denver, Colo. at light heavyweight.  Harris has won 10 of his last 11 fights, all remarkably by first-round submission.

The live NBCSN telecast of the four-fight World Series of Fighting 14: “U.S. vs. Canada” main card begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
