Mark Pavelich and Ken Franczek, co-owners of The Firm Sports Management, proudly announce the signing of fast-rising Canadian mixed martial arts standout Brendan Kornberger to a management contract.
A Vancouver, British Columbia, native, Kornberger (8-3) has come away victorious in three of his last four outings, topped by a successful defense of his Unified MMA middleweight title as he scored a fourth-round TKO over Miles Anstead on June 9 in Edmonton, Alberta. The title is Kornberger’s second regional championship on the heels of him capturing the Five Star Fight League belt with a third-round TKO over Brad Stewart in October 2014.
“Brendan has an enormous amount of talent and a real will to win that we first saw from him back in 2011 when he came onto the scene,” said Pavelich.
“His recent surge has shown a fresh new drive, one that I believe can take him to the biggest organizations in mixed martial arts. Brendan has great potential, and everyone at The Firm is very excited to help him reach the greatest level of success possible.”
The 32-year-old, who is a full-time firefighter in Vancouver, originally won the Unified MMA title by registering a unanimous decision verdict over Teddy Ash. Kornberger has a notable second-round TKO victory over submission specialist Micah Brakefield, and has fought under the banners of the Maximum Fighting Championship, World Series of Fighting, Battlefield Fight League, and King of the Cage.
