“There isn’t another fight promotion that comes close to the excitement we have,” Ari Taub, CEO and Founder of Hard Knocks Fighting Championship, said. “HK42 will not disappoint any fight fan looking to watch some serious action.”

The headlining title bout features the top ranked lightweight mixed martial artist in Canada and UFC hopeful Ryan Dickson (@rydmma), against Bellator Fighting Championship veteran Jason “The Finisher” Fischer (@FinisherMMA) from Detroit.

“The pro and amateur Fight Card for HK42 includes a stellar line up of emerging star fighters,” Taub said. “Great match-ups like our marquee fight between Dickson and Fischer make for very engaging TV. You can count on Hard Knocks bringing more dramatic TV moments, more fights and more behind-the-scenes access than ever before.”
