Cody "The Crippler" Crowley will headline this Saturday at Peterborough Memorial Centre in Peterborough, Ontario. The event will be streamed worldwide on UFC Fight Pass. The 26 year-old Crowley (17-0, 9 KOs), who is also co-founder of CCC Promotions, will defend his Canadian junior middleweight title in his hometown over twelve rounds against "Super" Mian Hussain (16-1, 6 KOs) of Montreal. The co-feature showcases one of Canada's most popular boxers, lightweight Tony "The Lightning" Luis (28-3, 10 KOs), in an eight-round bout against Mexico's Ricardo "Riky" Lara (22-6, 10 KOs). A former Interim world title challenger, Luis is a blood-and-guts type fighter who has won his last nine fights.
Crowley is an Irish-Canadian who trains in Las Vegas. The entertaining southpaw's most recent fight was this past February in his initial title defense, when he won a 12-round unanimous decision versus Stuart McLellan (25-2-3).
"It's destiny," Crowley said about him headlining at home on UFC Fight Pass. "We've done this on our own. I plan to fight here at home once a year. I want to show local youths how to take advantage of opportunities, creating inspiration and motivation for these youths coming up. When I was 21, I gave myself a ten-year plan to be world champion. I'm obsessed with being world champion; I eat and sleep boxing. I gave boxing a decade of my life and I'm halfway there. 2020 is going to be huge for my career. Too many weird things have happened for me not to become world champion."
A pair of undefeated heavyweights, Moses Johnson (4-0, 4 KOs) and Patrick "Magic" Mailata (2-0, 2 KOs), will compete in separate bouts. Johnson, fighting out of Huntington, NY, faces Jose Manuel Paredes (3-3-3, 2 KOs) in a six-rounder, while Samoa-native Mailata, who now lives in Las Vegas, takes on Mexico's Jorge Sevilla "Bombon" Acosta (2-0, 2 KOs). Mailata, whose fight will open the live stream, is a four-time New Zealand amateur champion who won a bronze medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
