Marius Zaromskis vs. Jordan Mein Targeted for June 10 in Mississauga, Ontario Canada


(“Whitemare” vs. “Young Guns” will fight over who has the lamest nickname.)

A welterweight match-up between DREAM 170-pound kingpin Marius Zaromskis and fast-rising Canadian prospect Jordan Mein is in the works for the June 10 Score Fighting Series event in Mississauga.

The news of the potential bout was first reported by TopMMANews.com

The winner of the DREAM welterweight Grand Prix, Zaromskis (14-5), who defeated PRIDE legend Kazushi Sakuraba in his last fight at K-1 Dynamite! Power of Courage on December 31, will be looking to pick up ¬†his second straight win against “Young Guns.” He finally got back on track after a disappointing 2010 that saw him drop back-to-back Strikeforce bouts to Nick Diaz and Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos and a no-contest ¬†under the SF Challenger banner for an eye-poke that left his opponent Wachim Spiritwolf.Interestingly, Zaromskis defeated Jason High — the last fighter to beat Mein — to win the DREAM title.

Mein (21-7), who is 8-1 since 2010 and has already fought three times in 2011 has beaten a pair of UFC veterans this year. In his last bout he defeated The Ultimate Fighter alumnus Josh Burkman at MMA: The Reckoning on April 2 in Orillia, Ontario and Joe Riggs by TKO at Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud in Gatineau, Quebec in January.

A win by either man could earn a call from the UFC considering Joe Silva has been closely watching Mein’s ascent up the ranks.

According to TopMMANews, other bouts being negotiated include Roger Hollett vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Joe Doerksen vs. Luigi Fioravanti, Antonio Carvalho vs. Doug Evans, Josh Hill vs. Roland Delorme, and Will Romero vs. Tristan Johnson.

Ok who wrote this article? It's like a joke.
1)THE Whitemare is one of the coolest nicknames evarr
2)Calling Zaromskis a kingpin at welterweight in dream is a joke.

Jordan Mein is a top notch fighter from Lethbridge Alberta with some serious skills and is as humble and gracious a guy you'd ever want to meet. You just want to see the best for someone like him. I think I speak for all MMA fans, coaches, and fighters in Alberta when I say best of luck in this fight and hope you get your shot at the UFC very soon........WAR MEIN!

I thought Zaromskis looked kind of undersized in the fight with Diaz. Maybe if this doesn't go so well for him he should consider a drop down to lightweight.

Man, sounds like a solid card. That fact that it is be contested under Pride Rules makes it more intriguing. I hope HDNet can pick this one up.

Black or right, white or wrong, those are both lame names.
