This will be Leifke’s debut as an amateur MMA fighter, while Smith hopes to improve his 0-1 record in the 165-pound category.
Another thrilling bout will feature Connor Monahan from Unity MMA and Kickboxing, who will be squaring off against Elijah Leonardo, representing Kelowna’s Toshido Mixed Martial Arts. Both Monahan and Leonardo have a 1-1 record, and their fight will determine the Mamba amateur featherweight champion at 140 pounds.

According to Kler, the competition will be fierce, as the event acts as a farm system for professional fights. While it is an all-amateur card, the organizers are on the lookout for the next big fighter in the industry.
The fights will take place at the Tournament Capital Centre Arena, providing an electrifying atmosphere for both fighters and spectators. Be sure not to miss this thrilling event that promises to deliver intense action and highlight the incredible talent of Okanagan fighters.
