The vacant Brutaal Genesis middlweight title is on the line Friday night when Nick Gamst's promotion returns to the Anoka Armory.

And it will be a battle of the Anthonys.

Middleweight contenders Anthony Montanari and Anthony Mix will meet for the middlweight title, and it's a fight Gamst has been waiting for.

"I really can't wait for this one," Gamst said. "The thing I love about this fight is that neither guy is really a wrestler. They're going to stand in front of each other and just throw down. If it hits the ground, I think it's going to be because someone is knocked out."

Montanari is 3-1 in his amateur career. He trains with Predator MMA. Montanari's lone loss came against Ben Lindau.

"Montanari is a tough guy, and his loss to Ben Lindau wasn't bad; I don't think we realized how good Ben was at jiu-jitsu," Gamst said. "Montanari is a real bruiser, a banger. He's a physical fighter, and he's going to come right at Mix."

Mix is a perfect 4-0 as an amateur. He trains with Impact Martial Arts.

"Mix is a guy who keeps getting better and better every time I see him," Gamst said. "He hits really hard. This fight just has all the makings of being awesome. Someone is getting knocked out."

There's also  a top contender fight on the card between two guys looking to move up the Brutaal Genesis rankings at 145 pounds. Troy Koford (3-2) will step in against unbeaten Damian Hill (2-0). Koford has been out of fighting for about nine months, and Gamst said Hill is on the verge of cracking the rankings.

"Troy has been out for a while, but he's wanting to jump right back in to a tough fight," Gamst said. "Damian is right there; this win
