A rumored June 10 bout between fast-rising Canadian welterweight Jordan Mein and DREAM 170-pound kingpin Marius Zaromskis was made official today as representatives from The Score Fighting Series confirmed the main event pairing.
Zaromskis will pose the biggest challenge of the career of the 21-7 Albertan, who defeated UFC veterans Joe Riggs (TKO) and Josh Burkman (decision) in his last two outings. “Young Guns” is hoping that a win over a fighter like Zaromskis will elicit a call from the UFC.
“I pride myself on being entertaining and putting on a good show for the crowd,” says Mein. “I know Marius will give me a great fight and test my abilities.”
Zaromskis definitely won’t give up a win easily, though. With his first title defense of the DREAM welterweight strap he won by highlight-reel KO over Jason High in the finals of the Japanese promotion’s welterweight grand prix under his belt against Kazushi Sakuraba in December at K-1 Dynamite! 2010, Zaromskis will be eager to continue his winning ways with a “W” over the highly-touted Canadian.
Other bouts being negotiated include Roger Hollett versus Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Joe Doerksen versus Luigi Fioravanti, Antonio Carvalho versus Doug Evans, Josh Hill versus Roland Delorme, Jorge Britto versus Kurt Southern and Will Romero versus Tristan Johnson.
