  • TKO 17 Revenge Fight Card September 25th

    (MONTREAL, CANADA) - TKO Communications is proud to announce the complete fight card for TKO 17: REVENGE(TM) on September 25th 2004 at LE COLISEE DES BOIS-FRANCS in beautiful Victoriaville, Quebec. TKO President Stephane Patry was very happy to announce the final lineup today. "Our last event there was a huge success and the fans in Victoriaville are huge supporters of TKO and MMA, we are looking forward to another exciting MMA week-end! I'm very excited with this fight card and I think this show will lead the way to what will happen on the Canadian scene in the next few years. A lot of questions will be answered on September 25th, and this will be the prelude to a very exciting TKO 18: UNIFICATION(TM) event later on this fall in Montreal".

    Canadian superstars Georges St-Pierre and Patrick Cote are busy getting ready for their upcoming fights at UFC 50(TM) in Atlantic City but in the meantime the best Canadian athletes in the sport of MMA are getting ready for one of the best card in Canadian MMA history: TKO 17 REVENGE! Revenge is the act of exacting punishment or atonement for a past injustice. The stakes could not be higher for these fighters; Revenge will be on their minds and redemption in their souls. The most talked about and greatest fights in combat sports history are those that have had personal meaning and historical context to them. TKO 17 will have an abundance of these fights and consequently promises to be a night of astounding mixed martial arts action!

    The event will feature ten (10) fights on the Main Card as well as four (4) preliminary bouts. Fans can Order tickets now through the TKO Ticket office (514-999-7531) and at Le Colisee des Bois-Francs. Tickets are going at a furious pace!



    In the main event, DAVID "THE CROW" LOISEAU (10-4-0) continues his rise to the top of the middleweight division as he takes on two time UFC veteran CURTIS STOUT (7-4-0). This will be a critical fight for both fighters as they feel they have something they need to prove. Both are spectacular strikers and they love to stand-up and go toe to toe. The UFC will be in the back of their minds as they walk-up to the ring on September 25th. Stout already went the distance with Phil Baroni and he wants to get back in the Octagon. Loiseau wants to show the UFC brass that he belongs there; he wants to show they didn't see the real David Loiseau in the Jorge Rivera fight. Loiseau is now 100% and he promises that on September 25th he will show his true abilities and overcome a formidable opponent in Curtis Stout.



    The newly crowned TKO Canadian lightweight champion DONALD OUIMET (7-3-0) goes head to head once again with his arch enemy DAVID GOULET (5-1-0). Some fighters pretend to dislike one another to hype up their fights. However, in the case of Goulet and Ouimet no acting is necessary. They carried a wealth of hatred into their first fight this past May at TKO 16. Very often fighters settle their differences in the ring and gain mutual respect for one another. Again, that is not the case here. Goulet lost his perfect record along with his TKO LW Championship in a controversial fight that ended with a melee in the ring after the bout. Cries of revenge will certainly be heard in this fight as Goulet seeks atonement and Ouimet searches for closure.



    That same night TKO fight fans will also have the chance to witness one of the most awaited rematches in Mixed Martial Art history. In his pro debut, TKO Canadian super lightweight champion MARK HOMINICK (5-3-0) stopped the former champion with impeccable strategy and vicious punching power. Hominick has since continued to impress with five straight wins in TKO. RICHARD NANCOO (6-2-1) and his camp have eagerly awaited their opportunity to avenge this loss, end Hominick's undefeated TKO record, and recapture the TKO SLW Championship. Will Nancoo bring enough to the table this time to stop the young phenom or

    will he be just another victim of Hominick's lighting fast strikes?



    One of the most awaited fights will finally happen at TKO 17 as JASON ST-LOUIS (9-4-0) takes on JONATHAN GOULET (9-5-0). St. Louis is a submission wizard returning to TKO after fighting across Canada for the past couple years. He is an exciting fighter who has yet to have one of his fights go to a decision in his 13 fight professional career. He has finished his opponents with a plethora of submissions from armlock, armbar, kimura, and triangle choke to strikes. His opponent, Goulet has fought and been victorious in 4 straight TKO events, he will have the home crowd behind him! Goulet is well versed in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is prepared for wherever St. Louis wants to take this fight. Georges St-Pierre is the king at the top of the welterweight division in Canada, St-Louis and Goulet will go to war to find out who is #2!



    This fight will feature the ultimate clash between the grappler and the striker. A member of the Brazilian Top Team, FABIO HOLANDA (0-3-0) has had a difficult start in MMA; but the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt said he went back to the drawing boards and claims he has a strategy that will dismantle the super striker. A seasoned veteran in MMA, KULTAR GILL (5-1-0) is ranked #1 in Canada in the Lightweight division and he believes his super aggressive style will be enough to send Holanda back home with another crushing loss. Keep your eyes on the ring when these two world class athletes meet!

    Also on the card is a Super Lightweight rematch between STEPHANE VIGNEAULT (6-2-0) and STEPHANE LALIBERT? (6-3-0). Laliberte was victorious in their first encounter by guillotine choke early in the second round. However, Vigneault has since won three straight fights and now plans on rectifying that loss to Laliberte. TKO 17 is also redemption time for Team Legion. Team Tompkins phenoms Mark Hominick and Sam Stout own a 4-0 record over Legion's fighters. Team Legion's leader STEVE CLAVEAU (1-4-0) will be looking to avenge that record as he faces the very dangerous SAM STOUT (2-1-1). Gibson Pankration's stand-out RYAN DIAZ (6-8-0) will also be in action as he takes on up and coming Super Lightweight fighter THIERRY QUENNEVILLE (4-1-0); Both athletes are looking to win this fight and knock at the TKO Canadian Super Lightweight championship door.

    TKO is also looking to shake up the Heavyweight division with two superfights featuring the return of powerful ICHO LARENAS (0-1-0) as he takes on Team Tompkins's BRIAN MAGEE (1-2-1). Both will be looking to avenge their respective loss at TKO 16. Quebec native MARTIN TREMBLAY (2-0-0) will be looking to improve his undefeated MMA record as he takes on another young phenom from the Tompkins clan. JACOB CONLIFFE (0-0-0) will be making his TKO debut but he will step in the ring with a huge reputation and some heart shocking knock-outs in kickboxing.
