How did these two get here?
Chris "The Menace" Clements didn't start training MMA until he was 26 years old. He turned pro in 2005 and was a staple of the Montreal-based TKO promotion in 2006-07. He competed once in the IFL but dropped his bout to Rory Markham. After two years away from the sport, he returned in late 2009 and has gone 5-1 since then, including four straight wins over the likes of Jonathan Goulet and most recently Rich Clementi. All 10 of his wins have come by form of knockout.
Keith "The Polish Connection" Wisniewski has been a pro fighter for 14 years. He got his first shot in the UFC back in 2005 against Nick Thompson, but dropped a decision. A six-fight winning streak from 2008-11 earned him another shot at UFC on Versus 6 against Josh Neer, but he was finished in the third-round by TKO. He'll look for his first big-league victory here against Clements.

Two guys are going to punch each other in the face a lot. If you can't find it in your heart to care about that, you're dead to me.
