10173692_774602849240536_5754702681972418657_nJon Barnard is the type of fighter that never really disappoints. His phenomenal striking game, and recently renovated ground skills, have put him in the upper ranks of fan favorites here in Hawaii. Lately he's been taking his show on the road and impressing fans on the mainland. At one point even gaining the respect of Shaq himself for an exciting performance. Now, Jon will take on international competition as he heads to Canada to compete in MFC 40 against the hometown favorite, Corey "The Hatchet" Gower. 
Squeaking out a decision win in his promotional debut, Gower has only one win in his last three bouts. But don't let that fool you, Gower is a man of action and will likely look to stifle the superior striking prowess of young Barnard. With this bout serving as Barnard's introduction to the MFC, look for "Untamable" to try to beat the brakes off of Gower from bell to bell. 
There is really no secret game plan to Barnard's style. He throws leather until you fall down, and then he throws a few more for good measure. When in need, he has a few takedowns and GNP tricks up his sleeves, but more often than not, his Kickboxing is on display. Having taken on some of the best that Hawaii has to offer, Barnard is likely prepared for whatever Canada can throw at him. If they are planning to throw him to the wolves, they need only prepare to have a new leader of the pack following MFC 40.
Good luck to Jon Barnard in his quest to top the ranks of the MFC on May 9th, and be sure to check out MFC 40 Prelims streaming on facebook at live on AXS TV.
