Too Tuff Promotions presented BULLY'S FIGHT NIGHT II on Friday, July 22, 2011, at the Lethbridge Exhibition Grand Stands in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. The event featured 3 fights for vacant titles.
In the all-Canadian main event, Nick Penner improved his record to 10-1 with a TKO win over John Ganshorn in the fourth round of their BFN Heavyweight Championship tilt. After winning the first 3 rounds, Penner scrambled to mount in the fourth round after Ganshorn recklessly gave up position going for a leglock attempt. Penner commenced to rain down punches until the referee peeled him off of Ganshorn.
In the co-main event, a match-up of heavyweights with less than stellar records, The Ultimate Fighter 10 alum James "The Hammer" McSweeney took out Lee "Gladiator" Mein in the first round. Mein is a top trainer in Canada and the father of the recently-signed Strikeforce fighter Jordan Mein. With this victory, his first since being released from the UFC, the Brit McSweeney broke a 4-fight losing streak.
Jacen Flynn won the vacant BFN Light Heavyweight Championship with a 44-second rear-naked choke submission victory over fellow American and former UFC fighter Edwin "Babyface" Dewees. Flynn started his MMA career in 1999, and in just his second pro fight submitted Denis Kang. Flynn would remain undefeated through his first 5 fights, including a split decision win over Dean Lister. Flynn lost for the first time in 2002 in a rematch with Lister. Following a submission loss to current UFC fighter Ed Herman in 2004, Flynn did not fight again for 3 years. Flynn returned in 2007 to twice submit Hank "The Vice" Weiss, but then didn't fight again until this fight over 4 years later. Not a bad comeback at all, though, beating a fighter the caliber of the veteran Dewees.
In the first of the 3 title fights, Winnipeg Academy of MMA's Alex Popov submitted journeyman Talon Hofman in the first round. Hofman was a questionable choice for this title opportunity in the first place, considering he was coming off back-to-back losses. Hofman has now lost 6 out of his last 7 fights.
