'We have teams from Finland, Sweden, Japan and France coming to Florida for matches, and the Florida teams are stepping up for some hard fights' begins matchmaker Miguel Iturrate.

The three main events feature the American TOP TEAM defending the home turf against a team of Japanese fighters. 'Izuru Takeuchi and Takuya Wada are formerly with SHOOTO and now with Pancrase - they are high ranked, veteran fighters with excellent records, and they represent BIG step up fights for Marcel Ferreira and Jorge Santiago.' explains the matchmaker.

'Takeuchi lost to ATT's Dustin Denes, and Ferreira is next for him. Santiago is coming off a loss at the last AFC and needs a win as well. These are pressure packed fights for both teams.'

Returning from France will be up and comer Antony Rea, taking on Florida native Crafton 'Blaze' Wallace, a physical specimen who people can't wait to see fight!

Scandinavians David Bielkheden and Sauli Heilimo will be cornered by European star Joachim Hansen for their matches. Heilimo, a skilled fighter, faces up and comer Carlo Prater, who trains at Yves Edwards Thugjitsu school in Houston, TX. Bielkheden takes on local favorite Charles McCarthy who is undefeated in AFC and looking to impress again upon his return to Florida.

Also, making his MMA debut is Hugo Berto, son of Diesel Berto, who is a PRIDE judge and a legendary martial arts figure from Florida. One more match to be added.
