Garner will be replacing the injured M-1 Global Heavyweight Champion, Guram Gugenishvili. Garner beat Bennett last year via first round TKO in the n the 2010 M-1 Selection Americas tournament finals. Garner has four KO wins and a solid wrestling base. 

"I'll fight anyone, anytime for M-1 Global," said Garner. "I've got to do better than what I've done before and this is my opportunity to chase down my belt! I've been training hard and I'm not losing to Pat Bennett; he's not making it out of the first round."

Bennett, also a wrestling-based fighter, is looking to get even with Garner. According to Vadim Finkelchtein of M-1 Global, Bennett has been requesting a rematch with Garner.

 "This is an opportunity to avenge my loss to Kenny and it's a fight I've wanted badly. He's the only one on my mind and I've got a point to prove," said Bennett.
