Jarrett Vornbrock's European adventure
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Jarrett Vornbrock's stock seems to be rising among the mixed-martial arts circle, so much so that he's been invited to take his talent across the Atlantic.
The Yellowknife MMA star is set to join the Canadian delegation heading to Prague, Czech Republic this coming November for the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation European Open. Just like his time in Las Vegas earlier this month, Vornbrock will be fighting in the flyweight division.
The format of the event is similar to Las Vegas in that Vornbrock will be fighting in a single-elimination bracket.
