The AFC#7 is less than 2 weeks away, as an international card of Mixed Martial Arts takes aim at Ft Lauderdale's War Memorial Coliseum. 'The 3 main events feature an 'American TOP TEAM versus Team Japan' theme.' starts matchmaker Miguel Iturrate. Marcel Ferreira takes on PANCRASE star Izuru Takeuchi in what is definitely a step up fight for him. At 170 lbs Jorge Santiago meets former SHOOTO star Takuya Wada. Finally at 155 lbs. Edson Diniz makes his comeback against Hiroki Kotani. 'The professionalism and skill of the Japanese fighters will be a good way to see if ATT's second wave of fighters is ready to breeak through.' explains the matchmaker.

There are also teams from all over Europe, as fighters from Finland, Sweden and France appear on the undercard. The United States is represented by talent from Washington, Indiana, New England, Vegas, West Virginia as well as by Miami's own Freestyle Fighting Academy. 'The undercard is packed with even matches between up and comers thoughout.' states the matchmaker. 'It is hard to pick a winner in any of them but they are sure to be entertaining.'

'One late replacement is Ricardo Pires student Mark Tullius. He will take on frenchman Antony Rea at 205 lbs.' concludes the matchmaker.
