Some unfinished business will be taken care of tomorrow night at the Bob Guertin Arena in Gatineau.

The world featherweight title and bragging rights will be on the line when Jeff "Big Frog" Curran and Wagnney Fabiano clash at the Apex Night of Champions MMA card.

"There's crazy bad blood between these two," said show producer Joe Ferraro. "We've been trying to get this bout together for a while. The bad blood has been a couple of years in the making."

It goes back to when Curran was to have one of his students fight Fabiano, who didn't show for the weigh-in, which Curran took as a sign of disrespect. The two have had a running feud since then.

There will be three other title bouts including a four-man tournament for the Canadian welterweight championship. Rowan Cunningham, Eric Beaulieu, Jason Motard and Jordan Jewell will battle for the title.

Another big bout on the card will see middleweight Nabil "The Thrill" Khatib of Rockland, who owns a 5-0-0 record, up against Fritz "The Animal" Paul of Montreal for the Canadian title. Fritz owns a 7-1-0 record.

The show starts at 7 p.m. at Le Bob. Tickets, which range from $35-$200, are available at tickemaster.ca and more information is available at apexfighting.com

It's also expected Apex will announce a television deal today.
