Ringside 10

A UFC Vet Replacing Chris Clements


April 9, 2011

Bell Centre - 7:30pm

Montreal, Quebec (Canada)



Ringside MMA, who in collaboration with evenko will present Ringside 10 on April 9th, 2011 at the Centre

Bell in Montreal, regretfully must announce that Chris “The Menace” Clements has withdrawn from the card.

Clements was expected to defend his middleweight championship against the number one contender Alex

Garcia, but has been forced to pull out due to an injury suffered during his training camp. Nevertheless,

Ringside MMA is excited to announce that an interim middleweight title will be added to the fight card in its



The undefeated Alex Garcia (6-0-0), who trains out of Tristar Gym, is considered among the best athletes in

the country. Garcia will now face UFC and IFL veteran Seth “The Polish Pistola” Baczynski (12-6-0).

Baczynski, who was part of the cast for The Ultimate Fighter: Team Liddell vs Team Ortiz, is a native of

Arizona and counts Efrain Escudero among his training partners. This 30 year old veteran of the Octagon

has faced such notables as Brent Beauparlant and Court McGee (in the UFC), Tim McKenzie and Brad

Tavares, the latter of whom beat him by a controversial decision in a hotly contested rematch. Regarded as

a well rounded athlete who excels in submissions, the 6’3” Baczynski will hold a definitive height advantage

over his 5’10” opponent. Baczynki will need every inch if he hopes to keep the Dominican native from

grabbing hold of Ringside’s new interim middleweight title, and exploding onto the international scene.


In addition, Ringside MMA has added a match at light heavyweight with up and coming prospect Guillaume

Vigneau (1-0-0). He will be facing Barrie, Ontario native Lyfield Chambers (0-0-0) who will be making his

pro debut. Vigneau made his own professional debut in Quebec city at Ringside 7: Invasion, when he beat

his opponent, David Fraser, by rear naked choke at 1:46 of Round 1.


As recently announced by The Fight Network, Ringside MMA and the combat sports specialty network

cable channel has reached an agreement to bring fight fans Ringside MMA action into 2011 and 2012. As a

result of this agreement, The Fight Network will broadcast the undercard of Ringside MMA events LIVE,

beginning with Ringside 10 on April 9th, 2011. This is an important partnership with Ringside MMA, who will
