Hardrock MMA 99 coming together with titles on the line


Hardrock MMA returns to the Northern Kentucky Convention Center next month but the lineup is starting to come together. Several titles will be on the line, one which is vacant.

Making a fourth straight title fight appearance will be the current middleweight champion Tyler Shipp (6-0). Shipp held the heavyweight, light heavyweight and currently holds the 185 pound title after defeating Nathan Pierce at Hardrock MMA 95. Shipp will meet Gavin Agnew (8-7). Agnew is always competitive and has bounced around weight classes.

Alex Hacker (5-3) returns to defend his welterweight title as he meets Jordan Zawhari (4-0).Hacker is coming off a win over aforementioned Gavin Agnew back in September at Hardrock MMA 92. Zawahri is unbeaten with four finishes in his short career. Hacker will play the away team for this fight as Zawahri is a crowd favorite in Northern Kentucky.

Eli Mefford (3-3) has racked up several fight of the night trophies and with a win at Hardrock MMA 98 he secured a spot in the featherweight title picture. He will meet Christian Jones (5-2). Jones has won three in a row including two straight title fights for Colosseum Combat. He will look to make it two titles against Mefford who always shows up to perform.
