Submission Wrestling Open 1 Announces Revamped Lineup & New Location!!!
Saturday, February 28th, 2004 North Broward Prep High School 7600 Lyons Road, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073 DOORS OPEN: 11:00 AM EST START TIME: 1 PM EST
The Submission Wrestling Open 1 has revamped it's lineup considerably since losing it's marquee matchup of David Terrell and Travis Lutter. 'We have worked to put together a solid event, and we think we have the right formula for a great SWO 1.' explains spokesman Miguel Iturrate. 'The event is built around superfights, with 4 tournaments filling out the event. The Absolute is an invitational for the fighters that competed in the other tournaments, and there is prize money for all of them. We want to thank our sponsors at the AFC, at SPRAWL, at Grappler's Quest, Sheldon Marr and his Team. We also want to thank ATT and Freestyle Fighting Academy in Florida. They all have teams in the event, and it is because of them that the event is possible.'
SWO 1 Adds the 'Magic Boy' - Marcelo Garcia is Florida Bound And More!
Unfortunately, 'Shaolin' Ribeiro had to pull out of his superfight with American TOP TEAM's Pablo Popovich. Starts spokesman Miguel Iturrate. This opened the window to sign Marcelo Garcia,, who is the 2003 Submission Wrestling World champion. Popovich did not meet him in the ADCC 2003, but 'Popo' took out previous world champion Marcio Feitosa, so he is obviously ready for the challenge.'
'Marcelo Garcia takes on Pablo Popovich, and Jeff Monson takes on Marcio 'Pe De Pano' Cruz in a clash of ADCC World Champions. These are the two main events, and there are 4 other superfights.' concludes the spokesman.
