Kentucky's premier mixed martial arts organization returns this Friday night as Spartan Fighting Championship is set for SFC 11.

Sixteen fights are slated for the event with the headline bout featuring undefeated light heavyweight Jason Butcher (2-0) facing Jared Combs (7-1) live on pay-per-view at 8:00 EST / 5:00 PST.

The National Guard Armory in Ashland, Ky. plays host to the event, and owner Terry Callihan believes the organization is primed for its best show to date.

"Fans that come to SFC 11: Destruction will be a part of Kentucky MMA History," Callihan recently told BleacherReport.com. "The first ever 135-pound champ will be crowned that night."

Cornelius Godfrey (3-0) and Thomas Campbell (3-1) meet for the opportunity to become the organization's aforementioned inaugural bantamweight champion.

"We are expecting a sellout crowd with an electric atmosphere that's second to none throughout the MMA community."

Additionally, Callihan told BleacherReport.com that the event will stream live and free on Facebook for the opening 30 minutes of the show.

At the conclusion of the Facebook portion of the show, the remainder of the event will be shown for $9.99 and is available worldwide to Internet subscribers on GFL.tv and SpartanFighting.com.
