The show will be head-lined by one of the city's most anticipated re-matches: Oliver Vajda (4-0 Carlson Gracie Jiu Jitsu) will defend his title against former opponent Ronald Diaz.
Diaz has accepted the match after the wrist injury to Walter Barrios. Everyone wishes Walter a speedy recovery but the show must go on.
The previous match between Vajda and Diaz in 2010 was a grueling affair that left many fans on the edge of their seats with a close split decision. The rematch promises to a thrilling and heavy hitting contest.
The finely tuned ground game and striking abilities of the two opponents is unparalleled.
You will only be able to see this epic battle at the Quest for Glory Fighting Championships on June 17th.
Another excellent match is scheduled between Shawn Pallan (Dragon's Den Elite MMA and Fitness 2-0 in MMA and 3-1 Muay Thai) versus Chris Anderson (Vancouver Island 3-0 ) for the Welterweight title.
The third MMA title contest of the evening will be in the 155 lbs Lightweight division. It will feature Coast BJJ’s undefeated Ryan Christopher (BC’s P4P #10) vs Brandon Shorter Revolution/Tactix. It promises to be a very exciting contest.
Joe Halfar (Posner's Pankration 5-1) and Josh Wright 3-1 (Dragon's Den Elite MMA and Fitness) will square off for the 160 lbs Muay Thai title bout. This is the fourth title bout planned for the evening and is expected to be an exciting and thrilling match.
An interesting non-title match has former Western Canadian Muay Thai champion and two time former BC Muay Thai Victor “The Dragon” Wang (Posners's Pankration) (8-1 Muay Thai, 2-1 MMA) squaring off against undefeated Jake Lindell (4-0 Spokane CanUSA Fight Team) in a Canada versus USA MMA bout.
