20 Feb Instinct MMA 3 Rescheduled to March 31st – Ringside Report + Wrestling Uncensored
Instinct MMA 3 will now be taking place a month later than originally planned due to numerous injuries of scheduled bouts. Originally scheduled for February 25th at the Centre de Foires in Sherbrooke, Quebec has now been moved to March 31st.
In the main event, a strikers dream match takes place as Martin “The Hammer” Grandmont (12-6) takes on Grudge MMA’s Brandon Thatch (6-1). Grandmont has been a mainstay in Quebec MMA since 2005 with 9 KO/TKO victories to his credit. Thatch made a huge impact at Instinct MMA 2 with a 15 second knockout of Patrick Vallee and has five of six victories by way of knockout. With these combustible elements this is sure to be a fantastic bout.
Undefeated Light Heavyweight Todd Stoute (4-0) returns to the Instinct cage for the third time, as he is pitted against Sebastien Gauthier (6-2). Gauthier definitely has an experience edge in tougher competition than Stoute, with a victory over Icho Larenas and being opposite Steve Bosse. However, the Toronto native, Stoute, has looked unstoppable since debuting on the Quebec scene.
Only six bouts have been announced for the March 31st card, including more Light Heavyweight action between Anselmo Gutierrez and Guillaume Vigneau, Bantamweight action between Kickboxing Champion Syd Barnier and Maxime Fecteau, the Instinct MMA debut of Stephane Pelleteir, and the rumored MMA debut of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu stand out Jessica Branco.
