Josh Emmett and Max Griffin Receive A Note of Sentiment from West Coast FC

Before Max ‘Pain’ Griffin (13-4) and Josh Emmett (13-1) appear under the coveted lights of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, West Coast Fighting Championship, the promotion that supported their development as professional mixed martial artists since the beginning, ushered them off to Orlando, Florida with some sentimental words.

West Coast FC posted on their Instagram, “Two of the most important Champions West Coast FC ever had are on the main card tomorrow night on FOX. Josh Emmett is in the main event while Max Griffin kicks things off against Mike Perry. Going to be a crazy night of fights. Shout out to West Coast FC vets Alex Perez and Albert Morales [who are] also set to do work on this stacked card.”

West Coast FC opened its cage inside Sacramento’s McClellan Conference Center in 2012, and numerous talents touched foot on their canvas. Emmett and Griffin, born and bred in Northern California, grew ravenous followings during their reign as West Coast FC champions. Now, scheduled as bookends on the main card of UFC on FOX 28, the pair will attempt to write their next level of achievement in the sport. Griffin, who represents Marinoble’s Martial Arts and Kickboxing and MMAGOLD, sets the main card ablaze in a match-up against ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry (11-2), a colorful personality with the hometown advantage. On the other end of the spectrum, Team Alpha Male’s Emmett will close the show opposite an ageless threat in the featherweight division: Jeremy ‘Lil’ Heathen’ Stephens (27-17).

Based on the number of exclamation points, it seems as though Dana White, Griffin and Emmett’s new boss, boasts a similar level of enthusiasm about the entertainment value they bestow as that of West Coast FC’s head honcho, Branden Ware.
