The Main Event at HD MMA XII is one of the most exciting Oklahoma MMA Welterweight fights in recently memory. Braden Smith, the former HD MMA Welterweight title holder and national prospect, who last year signed a multi-fight deal with LFA vacating his HD title, returns to the promotion with a fight against extremely dangerous and seasoned veteran Codale Ford, who most recently competed under the Bellator MMA banner.
Smith (8-2) is a well-known name in the Oklahoma and regional circuits. With his exciting style and bold personality, the fighter has racked up big wins in both MMA & boxing. After coming off an upset loss in his last bout, he is refocused and looks to showcase an evolved skill-set against a well-traveled opponent in Codale Ford.
Ford (12-10) has competed all over, with big fights and wins for such organizations as Bellator MMA. The talented veteran looks to propel his name back among fighters to watch in the Midwest with a big win over a highly regarded name such as Braden Smith.
In what is a big fight for both men, one that could determine their immediate futures, the Welterweights are sure to leave it all in the cage come Friday, June 8th.
