Fresh off signing a two-fight deal with the Maximum Fighting Championship, Jesse "JT Money" Taylor has garnered a spot in the main event for MFC 25: Vindication.
Taylor (14-5) will meet Thales Leites (16-3) in the headliner bout of the MFC’s upcoming show on Friday, May 7 at the Northlands Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, and seen live throughout North America on HDNet Fights.
"This is a main-event matchup that could easily become a Fight of the Year candidate," said MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich. "I love Jesse Taylor’s aggressive nature and he is coming here with bad intentions on his mind. And Thales Leites has a new-found desire to showcase his raw power and talent.
"Neither one of these guys is going to sit back and let the fight come to him – they are going to step up and bring it. There is a title shot at stake here and both of these guys are coveting the MFC championship belt."

I think JT has a chance in this one. I know hes sometimes a little sloppy, but if he can avoid getting subbed, he can pull out the decision.

Leites will sub him.
