Many AFC fans will remember the utter grit and heart Chemelli has demonstrated in his 4 fights with the AFC. "Tim Chemelli is the epitome of class and the prototype of what every MMA fighter should be. Tim had a major injury coming into the Valimaki fight but chose to keep it hidden and fight for the fans. Now he's stepping up on short notice to save this fight. This just demonstrates what a great ambassador Tim is for MMA and The AFC" stated Darren Owen AFC matchmaker.
When asked about his opponent , Dwayne Lewis had this to say "I'm super disappointed that the fans won't see Me and Valimaki throw down but I can't say I'm surprised. That being said the fans won't be disappointed that big Tim Chemelli has stepped up. Tim as an opponent is as tough as nails and will come to throw bombs- I like that, much respect to Tim, it will be fireworks."
Chemelli 's management had this to say "Tim is extremely happy with how well the AFC has treated him and out of respect for the organization he accepted this fight. Tim also has a ton of respect of Dwayne Lewis. Tim knows the Lewis army would be disappointed if he didn't have an opponent July 5th. Tim will show up mentally and physically ready and he will honor his commitment to Dwayne Lewis and the AFC. Tim Chemelli is an old school figher."
This fight card also features Ryan Ford battling TUF alum Michael Hill for the vacant AFC Welterweight belt and Jesse Ronson challenging AFC Lightweight Champion Shane Campbell.
