RISE FC 5 Has A New Main Event

Rise FC 5 is only a couple weeks away as it takes place on November 30th from Chilliwack BC. This fight card looks to be one of the biggest in their short history with 4 championship fights on the schedule. Headlined with the Rise bantamweight championship being on the line, the card will also feature fights for the welterweight, featherweight, and amateur lightweight championship. Unfortunately, earlier this week the bantamweight main event hit a small roadblock.

Injury Hits Siraj

Rise FC 5 was slotted to have one of the biggest bantamweight fights in the country happen. Chad Anheliger was set to defend his bantamweight championship against Jamie Siraj. However, earlier this week Rise FC posted via their Instagram that Jamie Siraj had to pull out due to injury.

Anheliger vs. Hiestand

With the fight only 3 weeks away, Rise FC found an undefeated 4-0 prospect named Brady Hiestand to take the fight. Hiestand is coming off a TKO win at Conquest of the Cage in May of this year. With three of his four wins coming via finish, this fight still looks like it will have an exciting buzz behind it.

Anheliger broke his hand winning the championship earlier this year. After taking some time off too, he is back in the cage, ready to defend his title for the first time. Riding a seven-fight winning streak with six coming by finish, Anheliger will be looking to show that the Rise bantamweight division belongs to him.

Even though it isn’t the original main event, this fight looks like it will still have a lot of fireworks. Both fighters like to finish their fights so don’t be surprised if the judges aren’t needed in this one.

Stay tuned to MMASucka as we bring you fight news and live results from Rise FC.

RISE FC 5 Fight Announcement “The Monster” vs. “The Gremlin”

Rise FC 5 is set to take place on November 30th, 2019 in Chilliwack, BC. The main event was announced today on Rise FC’s Instagram page. Chad “The Monster” Anheliger will be defending his bantamweight championship against Chilliwack local Jamie “The Gremlin” Siraj.

The Monster

Chad Anheliger became the Rise FC bantamweight champion earlier this year after defeating Craig Maclean via TKO. Winning the bantamweight title turned Anheliger into a “double champ”, as he was already the Rise FC flyweight champion. This is Anheliger’s first fight since becoming the champion as he dealt with a broken hand from the win. Anheliger’s career started slow with a 2-5 record but he looks to have turned things around. Riding a seven fight win streak and having eight of his nine wins come from a finish, odds are the judges won’t play a factor in this fight.

The Gremlin

Jamie Siraj is looking to add another title to his collection. Siraj is the former BFL bantamweight champion and is the current Unified MMA bantamweight champion. The recent rumors were that Siraj might get a short notice fight when the UFC came to Vancouver but that wasn’t the case. This is the third time Siraj is stepping into the Rise FC cage. He previously defeated Gabe Sagman at Rise FC 3 and more recently defeated Blake Sigvaldason at Rise FC 4. Seven of his eight wins have come from a finish and he is currently on a five fight win streak, Siraj will be fired up to be the main event in his hometown at Rise FC 5.

When asked what fans can expect in this fight, Rise FC president Sabah Fadai had the following to say:

“Well when you get two of the best bantamweights in the country, that are on a huge win streaks, you can only expect fireworks. Both of these guys can finish the fight at any given time. I know I won’t even be blinking during this fight.”

Josh Kwiatkowski Takes on Matt Klute at Unified MMA 38

The man known as “Juggernaut,” Josh Kwiatkowski will step back inside the cage with just 11-days notice. At Unified MMA 38, Kwiatkowski will step in against Edmonton’s Matt Klute.

The Kwiatkowski vs. Klute match will be contested at a catchweight of 150-pounds.

Kwiatkowski (2-2) is coming off a show-stealing performance at Rise FC 4. The 25-year-old finished Grant Gorsegner with a flash knockout, 16-seconds into the very first round. The Checkmat Vancouver fighter stepped back into the win column with this finish, after falling short in his previous two outings. Kwiatkowski may hold a .500 record, however, he could easily have a perfect record, as his two losses were on the judges’ scorecards.

Josh Kwiatkowski vs. Matt Klute at Unified MMA 38

Klute (1-0) turned pro in early 2019 after a successful amateur career. At Unified MMA 37 in May, the 27-year-old earned a third-round stoppage against Gurjeet Bilkhu. Klute was expected to take on Marc Savoie, but unfortunately, the Calgary native was forced to withdraw from the bout.

Unified MMA 38 goes down from the River Cree Resort and Casino in Edmonton, Alberta. There are two title fights set for the card, as Chris Larsen takes on Jared Kilkenny in the main event for the heavyweight championship. In the evening’s co-main event, former UFC welterweight Matt Dwyer faces off with KB Bhullar for the middleweight title.

A Long Road to the UFC for Tristan Connelly

It has been a long road for UFC’s latest welterweight, Tristan Connelly. The Checkmat Vancouver product made his professional mixed martial arts debut nine years ago. Connelly will now step inside the cage in front of his hometown crowd at Rogers Arena.

It was announced by MMAJunkie.com, after a report from TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter that Connelly will face Michel Pereira on short notice. The two will square off on the main card at UFC on ESPN+ 16.

A Rocky Start

Connelly fought seven of his first eight bouts for Vancouver Island promotion AFC.

He kicked things off in March of 2010 with a victory over Jimmy Phan. Following that contest, Connelly lost back-to-back fights. Just four months after his debut, Connelly lost to Takahiro Kajita under the DEEP banner and a unanimous decision blemish to Dan Ring at AFC 4 later in the year.

Throughout his next four fights, “Boondock” bounced back and forth between wins and losses. He improved his record to 2-2 with a victory over Upneet Rai at AFC 6 midway through 2011 but lost to Matt Trudeau at AFC 7 just a few months later.

In 2012 Connelly went 1-1 with a victory over Corey Houston and a loss to Myles Merola.

Connelly fought his final fight for AFC in 2013 and went out with a bang. He picked up an early first-round submission victory against Jonathan Dubois, which would prove to kickstart the rest of his career.

The Turnaround

With a .500 record of 4-4, Connelly signed a contract to fight veteran Shawn Albrecht at BFL 37. This proved to be a real breakout performance for the Checkmat product. Utilizing a fantastic clinch game, landing elbows and punches, Connelly finished Albrecht late in the first round.

At BFL 39 Connelly would lose a very tight decision to Tristar trained talent Mario Pereira. That loss pushed Connelly forward and he went on to win his next four in a row.

At BFL 45 he knocked out Ash Mashreghi in round one and follow that up with three straight rear-naked choke victories over Adam Assenza, Garret Nybakken and Lenny Wheeler.

Connelly would end 2017 with a slight setback. At Unified MMA 30, Boondock would put his lightweight title up for grabs against veteran Shane Campbell. Connelly would succumb to a kneebar in the third round.

Final Push

With 2017 behind him, Connelly would push full steam ahead and leave that calendar year in his rear-view mirror.

The 33-year-old would start 2018 off with a lightweight championship victory at CageSport 50. He tapped out Joey Pierotti with an armbar in the fourth round. He followed that up by defending his title at CageSport 54 with a destructive performance against Tyrone Henderson, forcing the American to retire following the first round.

Connelly would add another victory to his record at Final Fight Championship 36. He made the trip to Vegas and finished Zach Juusola just two-minutes and forty-six seconds into the first round.

Most recently, he would cap off his four-fight winning streak, with a relentless performance at Rise FC 4 against D’Juan Owens. The bloodbath was a back and forth battle, with Connelly able to withstand Owens and pour on the punches in the fifth round. At one minute and fifty-six seconds of round number five, Connelly earned the Rise FC lightweight championship.

UFC Debut

On just four days notice, Connelly will face Pereira who holds a 23-9 record. The Brazilian made his first Octagon walk at UFC on ESPN+ 10 earlier this year. He impressively finished Danny Roberts, with a flying knee in the first round.

UFC on ESPN+ 16 goes down on September 14 from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia.
