MMA Junkie reports that three title fights have been announced for Maximum Fighting Champion 40: Crowned Kings. The event takes place on May 9 at the Shaw Conference Center in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main card will air live on AXS TV.
Two of the title fights have no challengers for bantamweight champion Anthony Birchak (11-1) and middleweight champion Sam Alvey (21-5). The third is a rematch between Tom Gallicchio (18-8) and Kurt Southern (13-5) for the vacant lightweight belt. The order of the card will be decided by a fan vote, by using the #PunchTheVote hashtag on social media. The first time the MFC ran the Punch the Vote campaign, Birchak was in the main event of MFC 38.
