There is no athlete in the Peace Country who has worked as hard as Spencer Jebb.
The Grande Prairie MMA fighter, once crowned the best athlete in the Peace Country, has toiled diligently at his craft since he first stepped into the ring on November 18, 2011.
He has been a good soldier fighting eight times on Xcessive Force Fighting Championship cards in the ENTREC Centre at Evergreen Park.
His populairty has attracted thousands of local MMA fans watching him battle to six wins and two losses in his hometown.
Jebb’s dedication has not gone unnoticted by XFFC promoter Darren Cliffe.
On Friday, at XFFC 12 in the ENTREC Centre, Jebb is part of the main event in an eight-fight card that features four professioal fights and four amateur tilts. It is his first main event appearance.
Jebb, 25, will be taking on on 31-year-old veteran Derek Boyle of Lethbridge in a 170-pound match that good help propel the local fighter to an eventual title belt tilt at XFFC in the near future.
The 5-foot-11 Jebb is coming off a split decision loss to Michael Hill at XFFC in the ENTREC Centre in the spring of this year while the six-foot Boyle is looking to get back into the win column after losing a split decision to Taki Uluilakepa a day after Jebb’s loss April 15.
Boyle, nickenamed “The Gargoyle” has been fighting since 2008 while Jebb, known as “Judge”, has been battling in the cage since 2011.
Brothers Dayton and Jordan Roberts of Grande Prairie are on the pro card.
Jordan, who has a record of 1-1, takes on Justin Nanaquawetung of Edmonton (4-4) in a 165 pound battle while Dayton (0-2) fights Ryan Moore (0-1) of Saskatoon, SK in a 170 pound affair.
Dayton will be trying to do a little payback for his brother. Jordan fought, and lost, to Moore at XFFC 9 in April.
In a female battle two ladies who have been in the XFFC ring before will square off.
Alyssa Krahn, who appeared on Fox TV’s Ultimate Fighter last year, will grapple Cheryl Chan in a 115 pounder.
