Billed as one of the most electrifying title fights ever put together by the MFC, tomorrow night's main event of MFC 21 Hard Knocks has Emanuel 'The Hardcore Kid' Newton (18-3) putting his world light heavyweight title on the line against Trevor Prangley (19-5).

"Two very accomplished athletes are going to be going in there and just putting a beat down on each other," said Prangley, not wanting to disrespect his opponent by predicting who will be victorious.

"I think the biggest winner's going to be the MFC and the fans. Me and Emanuel are going to come out of there looking a little different than we look right now."

Despite being the champion, mixed-martial arts pundits have labelled Newton as the underdog against Prangley - who has become accustomed to being turned down by potential opponents more often than not.

"A lot of people ducked Trevor," said Newton, adding he's not one to back down from a challenge.

"This is going to be a war but this is what I want. I can't be a champion and I can't move up in this sport ... just picking my fights."

Prangley, for one, appreciates being given the shot.

"It's a great opportunity. It's not often you get to walk into a title fight," he said.
