Micah Brakefield returns to the MMA cage and this time around will face a UFC veteran. At Rumble in the Cage 60 in Lethbridge, Alberta, “Mitey” will take on two-time UFC fighter Jesse Bongfeldt.
The bout between Brakefield and Bongfeldt will be contested at 195-pounds and will main event the November fight card.
Brakefield (7-7) bounced back to .500 with a big submission victory over Taylor Bull at BFL 56 in July. Prior to that fight, the 30-year-old had not competed inside the MMA cage since March of 2016.
Bongfeldt (22-7-1) holds an impressive record but has been out of action since a round two submission victory against Brandon MacArthur at a Rumble in the Cage event in 2011. The man known as “Water” has fought all over Canada, and prior to him walking away from the sport in 2011, was 8-1-1, with his loss to Chris Weidman and the draw to Rafael Natal.
