Ryan Ford Makes Stop at Aggression MMA this weekend before Heading to Bellator

Canadian welterweight standout Ryan Ford inked a deal with Bellator in July, but he will fight for Aggression MMA this weekend. Ford is a former Maximum Fighting Championship Welterweight Title contender. He started his pro career with the MFC and fought ten of his career bouts under the MFC banner. At one point, Ford left the promotion following disagreements with promoter Mark Pavelich but returned for one bout before leaving for good once again in 2010. In the interim, Ford has fought for The Fight Club, with which he earned their 170 lb. title, and Aggression MMA, for whom he will compete this coming Friday.

At Bellator Ryan Ford joins a stacked welterweight roster which includes Bellator titleholder Ben Askren, the always competitive Dan Hornbuckle, known veteran Jay Hieron, and fellow MFC fighter Douglas Lima.
