Derek Brunson replaces Terry Martin, faces Kendall Grove at ShoFIGHT 20

Quote:
Three-time Strikeforce veteran and undefeated middleweight prospect Derek Brunson (9-0) will fight for ShoFIGHT's first-ever 185-pound title.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned that Strikeforce officials have granted Brunson permission to face Kendall Grove (14-10) at Saturday night's ShoFIGHT 20 event.

ShoFIGHT CEO J.T. Tilley confirmed Grove's original opponent, Terry Martin, was unable to obtain medical clearance with the Missouri Office of Athletics and was forced to withdraw from the bout, opening the door for Brunson.

Featuring a welterweight title fight between UFC veterans John Gunderson and Karo Parisyan, ShoFIGHT 20 takes place June 16 at O'Reilly Family Event Center on the campus of Drury University in Springfield, Mo. The card airs live on the Fight Network in Canada and on a tape-delayed pay-per-view on July 1 in the U.S.

The new Brunson vs. Grove fight serves as the evening's co-main event.

Brunson made his professional debut in May 2010 and has already competed nine times as a professional. Competing on the regional scene, the North Carolina native earned six-straight first-round stoppage wins before earning a Strikeforce bid, where he has since scored victories over Nate James, Lumumba Sayers and Jeremy Hamilton.

Meanwhile, Grove, the winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 3," was released from the UFC in 2011 following a 13-fight run in the octagon. Following his release, "Da Spyder" notched ProElite victories over Joe Riggs and Ikuhisa Minowa before suffering a technical-submission loss to Jay Silva at February's Superior Cage Combat 4 event.

Additional changes include Matt Kovacs (6-8) stepping in for Aaron Rosa to face Mike Wessel (10-4) and Mike Brazzle (1-1) stepping for Travis Coyle to meet Karen Darabedyan (9-4).

A planned matchup between Chris Barnes and Jesse Zeugin was also scratched.

With the change, the latest ShoFIGHT 20 lineup includes:

MAIN CARD

John Gunderson vs. Karo Parisyan - for vacant welterweight title
Derek Brunson vs. Kendall Grove - for vacant middleweight title
Marcus Aurelio vs. Lyle Beerbohm
Matt Kovaks vs. Mike Wessel
Drew Fickett vs. Jonatas Noveas
Roli Delgado vs. Chris Gruetzmacher
Sam Alvey vs. Lucas Lopes
Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett vs. Chris McDaniel
Sevak Magakian vs. J.P. Reese
Alan Gibson vs. Dustin Phillips

PRELIMINARY CARD

Mike Brazzle vs. Karen Darabedyan
Matt Lucas vs. Lucas Overcast
Jacob Ritchie vs. Rabert Saborudden
Jason Ignacek vs. Gary Michaels

I wasn't aware the main and co-main events were for titles. Well glad to see these two guys will go for something of note. Either two veterans are going to get something or two rising stars will.
