STEELE OUT; Ryan Ford NOW FACES Ricky Goodall AT FEBRUARY 11TH AMMA 9 EVENT

Event to be featured on PPV on AggressionMMA.com

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Edmonton, Alberta (Canada): It was confirmed today by Aggression MMA that Tyson Steele has suffered a knee injury and as a result, has had to withdraw from his AMMA 9 main event bout with Ryan Ford. Stepping in to take his place will be Ricky Goodall (9-4), a talented welterweight with a wealth of experience.

Also announced was a change of opponent for rising star Sheldon Westcott. Originally scheduled to lock horns with Dave Cochran, he will now battle Jay Jensen (7-6) instead. In addition, AMMA 9 will be featured on iPPV through AggressionMMA.com for fight fans that can’t make it to the event.

“We’re disappointed that Tyson got injured and had to pull out of the fight…we wish him a speedy recovery and hope to have him on an AMMA card very soon,” stated Aggression MMA Co-Owner Moin Mirza. “But we know what Ricky can do, and we’re confident this is going to be a barnburner of a fight, regardless.”

AMMA9 is slated to hit the Shaw Conference Centre on Saturday, February 11th in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In the two co-main events, top Canadian welterweight Ryan Ford will take on the challenge presented by Ricky Goodall. In the other feature bout, rising Canadian fight star Tim Chemelli will look to add UFC veteran Victor Valimaki to his list of victims. Also making his return to Aggression MMA will be another top young Canadian 170-pounder in Sheldon Westcott. In addition, AMMA 9 will feature well-known Canadian competitors Rio Wells, Stephen Beaumont, Luke Harris, and Markhaile Wedderburn.

Ryan Ford (16-4) is one of the top MMA stars in Canada. Ford was upset by David Hulett in his last bout, but before that defeat, he had won four straight fights, as well as eight of his last nine, finishing all his victims on either punches or submissions. In 2011 alone, he conquered Johnny Davis, former UFC welterweight contender Karo Parisyan, and fellow top Canadian Nick Hinchliffe in succession. Now looking to rebound from the Hulett loss, “The Real Deal” is motivated with a burning desire to show the fight world he truly is the next elite Canadian fighter.

Edmonton, Alberta native and local favorite Victor Valimaki (16-8), a former holder of the TFC Light Heavyweight Championship, will look to right the ship as he collides with another rising Canadian star in Tim Chemelli (8-1). A former UFC fighter, “The Matrix” is going through a rough streak in his career, but is determined to get back in the win column at the expense of his young foe. Valimaki holds victories over MMA legend Dan Severn, and UFC veterans Vernon White and Jason Day. Chemelli, a member of Team Sparta and a native of Alberta, has finished all eight of his opponents in his victories, but is coming off his first career loss. The defeat came at Aggression: “Unfinished Business” last year against Nick Penner. Now this finishing machine will look to come back strong and grab victory against a UFC vet in Valimaki.

Also competing on the card will be tough Canadians Stephan Beaumont, who is undefeated at 4-0, and strong Muay Thai fighter Markhaile Wedderburn will put their skill sets on display once again for the Aggression fans.
