The Grim Reaper vs. Cabbage at HCF 5
Heavy-handed Team Red Devil heavyweight Aleksander Emelianenko is scheduled to face heavy-headed Team BJ Penn heavyweight Wesley "Cabbage" Correira on October 19 in the main event of the Hardcore Championship Fighting 5 show, which will be held at The Stampede Corral in Calgary.
Aleks, who loves to let those hands fly, recently displayed some submission prowess by disposing of Jessie Gibson with a first-round kimura in the July M-1 Rissia vs. Europe event. Cabbage seems to have no problem taking a punch, but he's lost five of his last six fights and faces in Aleks former Sambo champion with a solid submission game, fast hands, and knockout power. And sometimes a mullett. I'm going to have to go with Aleks in this fight.
