Check out some of the fighters that will be showcased on the second season of Fight Exchange below.

Lindsay Garbatt

Lindsay Garbatt is a former two-time World Champion boxer who possesses a devastating array of heavy-handed striking abilities. Given the skills at her disposal, her nickname, “Lethal”, couldn’t be more fitting…

After making he jump from boxing to MMA, it was almost impossible to find an opponent willing to step to the plate, and provide Lindsay the opportunity to make her debut. Very rarely, if ever, has an 0-0 fighter been so feared…

But after over two years of playing the waiting game, Lindsay finally got her chance to showcase her skills – and most certainly didn’t disappoint, winning her first fight – a back-and-forth affair – against a game-opponent, in what wound up as ‘Fight of the Night’…

Taking her 1-0 record to Japan, Lindsay – an armed Nuclear Response Force Officer – looks forward to going to Japan, to showcase her skills on international soil, and hopes to move one-step closer to joining the newly established UFC 115lbs division.

Will Lindsay secure the devastating knockout victory in Japan? And will we see, first hand, why so many potential opponents wanted nothing to do with this high-octane, pugilistic personality? Tune into FIGHT XCHANGE this fall, to find out!

JESSE GROSS

A “fighters fighter” that takes on all comers, and fears no man – that best sums up the legacy of Canadian Featherweight stalwart, Jesse “The Ghost” Gross. With a record of 10-4, with 7 wins coming by way of KO/TKO, Gross is prone to providing a display of beautiful violence rarely matched in the 145lbs division.

The consensus #4 ranked FW in Canada, Jesse has had his fair share of wars against top competition, and at 27, the Wallaceburg, ON native concedes his time in the sport could be drawing to a close – unless the long-awaited call to the ‘big show’ comes knocking in short order.

By heading to Japan, Gross is looking to take the final step in realizing his long-standing, and oft suggested, long over-due dreams. With a win in Japan, will “The Ghost” continue to haunt opponents in the cage at the highest level? Or will the London, ON-based knockout artist finally call it quits on career some may suggest never realized its full potential? Tune into FIGHT XCHANGE this Fall to find out!….

TJ LARAMIE

Prodigy. Phenom. Virtuoso. Whiz Kid. The Future…

These are just a few of the adjectives used to describe 17-year-old MMA Fighter, TJ Laramie. A 3x Grapplers Quest Champion, and U17 IKF Kickboxing World Champion, TJ displays a well-roundedness you might expect from a seasoned pro, yet at just 17, with a wide array of skills at his disposal, he appears poised for a meteoric rise in the sport.

While many fighters just want an opportunity, anything less than Championship Gold would be a disappointment according to the Windsor, ON, native. “I want to be the best of the best” says TJ – and so, on FIGHT XCHANGE, TJ will take the first step in realizing his dreams, as he’ll head to Japan for his first ever pro fight.

A mammoth step for the teenager, too young to Fight professionally in Canada, TJ will put it all on the line as he steps into the cage in a foreign country. Will the hype train be de-railed before it even gets going, or will we bear witness to the birth of the next great Canadian MMA Superstar?

Vyron Phillips

A former college basketball all-star, Vyron turned down a contract to play pro-ball in Portugal for a chance to complete his degree and focus on MMA. This choice has paid off for Vyron so far, as he sports a 4-1 (3KO) record thus far in his young career. Outside the cage, Vyron has fought through adversity on a personal level as well, having lost a brother to an act of senseless violence, and so, looks forward to setting a positive example for the many young people who find themselves in a similar situation.
