Two belts will be on the line Saturday night when Fearless Fighting Championship 9 invades Black Bear Casino, just outside of Cloquet, Minn.

FFC 9 is set to start at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, with a whopping 17 fights on the card, including two pro bouts, two female fights and a pair of title bouts.

Minnesota's Billy Christianson is set to fight for the FFC 155-pound professional title against veteran Brian Learn, who suffered a TKO loss last weekend to Zach Schumack during Evolution at Epic.

Christianson comes into the fight with a 4-1 record, while Learn dropped to 14-13 as a pro with last weekend's setback.

Inner Strength standout Marzett Turner is making his pro debut Saturday. The No. 5-ranked 185-pounder will take on Chris Hicks, who was 9-4 as an amateur. Turner was a perfect 9-0 during his amateur career.

Turner's brother, Terrance, also will be returning to the cage Saturday looking for the second win of his amateur career against Kevin Campbell (0-6).

The FFC 155-pound amateur title also will be on the line as Inner Strength's Ryan Vanpuymbrouck takes on Travis Turk (1-0). RVPB is 6-2 as an amateur.

Fights are scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and tickets, which start at $35, will be available at the door.
