Graham Spencer expected to return to MFC ring on January 23

Spencer (10-1) has been out of action since his championship victory over Mukai Maromo in February 2013. Prior to that bout the Nanaimo native suffered a shoulder injury during training, but pushed forward and earned himself a third round submission victory. Later Spencer learned that he had actually fought with a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

After almost a two-year hiatus, Spencer is itching to get back inside the ring.

“Being away from fighting for so long made me realize how much I love doing this,” Spencer told MMASucka.com “It was tough not being able to train but I’ve made some changes mentally on how I’m approaching the sport that I believe are going to help me in the long run.”

The 30-year-old has returned to Sacramento, California to train with Team Alpha Male to prepare for this camp.

Spencer’s returns to the ring will be at 145-pounds and is expected to take place at MFC 42 on January 23 and it will go down at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta.
