Nick “The Juggernaut” Hinchliffe (17-7, , B.C. #8) Hinchliffe’s opponent at 170lbs. will be well-traveled Tyler “TNT” Jackson (10-7-1) of Revolution MMA who has fought some excellent opponents of late, like Alex Garcia (6-0, LOSS), Derek Gautier (6-2, WIN), and Nathan Gunn (7-2, Split-LOSS). Both Hinchliffe and Jackson have a striking-first mentality, which should produce a highly entertaining scrap, and there remains a strong possibility that another major fight will be added to top the card shortly.

Former Strikeforce female welterweight champion Sarah Kaufman (12-1 MMA, 4-1 SF) has her eyes on regaining the title she lost to Marloes Coenen this past October, but in the meantime, she’ll stay busy outside of the promotion.
Kaufman and the Canadian-based promotion recently announced that the former Strikeforce champ will fight in front of her hometown crowd in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, on April 2 at “Armageddon Fighting Championship 5: Judgment Day.”
Kaufman said she took the fight with Strikeforce’s permission and also remains under contract with the California-based promotion.
“I am extremely thrilled to be able to have Sarah fight for us, especially in front of all her friends and family,” Armageddon president Darren Owen stated in an official release. “She has been at all of our events and gets the biggest ovation, and now to be able to give our fans what they really want, to watch her compete, just makes sense.”
Kaufman’s opponent has yet to be determined.
Prior to her recent loss to Coenen, the previously undefeated Kaufman had racked up 12 consecutive wins to open her career. The 25-year-old Canadian claimed the Strikeforce title with a February 2010 win over Takayo Hashi and defended the belt against Roxanne Modafferi before surrendering the title this past October.
