APEX: Caged Inferno -- January 13th in Gatineau

    Tue, 2006-12-26 12:29 — Denis Martins


    Budweiser presents APEX: CAGED INFERNO, the debut of cage fighting in the
    national capital region. For the first time in APEX history all mixed
    martial arts bouts will take place in a chain linked, six sided steel cage.
    This event takes place on Saturday January 13th, 2006 at the Robert Guertin
    Arena in Gatineau, Quebec.

    Fans at the Robert Guertin Arena we will be part of a nostalgic evening as
    they will not only be privy to this inaugural moment in Canadian MMA
    history, but they will witness to the return of a Canadian MMA icon.

    Saturday January 13th, 2007 marks the return of the 'Pimp', Sean 'Pimp
    Daddy' Pierson (4-3), as he takes on APEX Canadian Middleweight Champion
    Fritz 'The Animal' Paul (8-3). There is no love lost between these two
    fighters, as both are brash, both are cocky and both do not think to highly
    of each other. 'Pimp Daddy' holds a first round submission victory over
    Paul's trainer, Ali Nestor, so at APEX: Caged Inferno 'The Animal' will be
    looking for redemption. Paul was extremely impressive at APEX: A Night of
    Champions where he won a close 3-round decision against popular home town
    favourite, Nabil “The Thrill” Khatib.

    Khatib (5-1) has also been added to the APEX: Caged Inferno card as he looks
    to return to his winning ways against Edmonton’s Daryl ‘The Storm’ Bonar.
    Bonar, a member of the Canadian military brings a record of 3-1 to the cage
    and is looking to position himself amongst the top tier of APEX Canadian
    middleweights. The winner of this bout will take on the winner of the
    Paul/Pierson bout for a shot at APEX Canadian Middleweight Championship

    In a battle for the vacant APEX Canadian Lightweight Title, undefeated APEX
    veteran Shaun ‘The Phenom’ Krysa (4-0) takes on the experienced Thierry ‘The
    Surgeon’ Quenneville (9-5) who is coming off a tough 3-round decision
    against Greg Compton. Fireworks are bound to explode in this bout as both
    fighters are not known to back down from an all out war.

    The debut of the cage is not the only 'first' at APEX: Caged Inferno. For
    the first time in the organization's history, there will be a woman’s fight
    in the National Capital Region. Not since the days of MMA events on Indian
    reserves has there been a woman’s fight in Quebec. On this night, Kingston’s
    Rebecca Sweeney (2-0) brings her undefeated record to face the extremely
    tough and talented Jessica Aguilar (2-1) representing the much heralded
    American Top Team. This bout will be for the APEX Women’s World Lightweight

    Fans of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will be happy to hear that making his North
    American debut at APEX: Caged Inferno will be one of the worlds top
    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practictioners in Leo Santos (1-2). Santos’ MMA debut
    was against Pride champion Takanori Gomi, where he took him to a close
    decision on only two weeks notice. Santos’ record in BJJ is legendary and he
    is proud to join the APEX stable of fighters, where his brother Wagnney
    Fabiano has been featured as a main event fighter.

    Also competing on the card will be Mike ‘Hurricane’ Hong, Bryan Edge, Dan
    ‘Bighouse’ Grandmaison, Jacob ‘Hot Sauce’ Macdonald, former Canadian
    Olympian Ainsley Robinson, Cedric Grenon, Ronin MMA’s Wade Shanley and Rory
    McDonell. Look for more information on the fighters competing in the other
    bouts shortly. Also, look for an additional top level bout to be added in
    the very near future.

    Unfortunately due to a medical suspension incurred in his most recent UFC
    bout, Jeff ‘The Inferno’ Joslin is unable to compete at APEX: Caged Inferno.
    Joslin will still be attending the event on January 13th to support his teammates on the card and to meet all his loyal fans.
