WORLD FIGHTING ALLIANCE RETURNS IN GRAND STYLE
TRIGG VS. MILETICH IS ON!
Believe the rumors! The World Fighting Alliance has come through again with the official announcement of its first scheduled match-up for its upcoming November 23rd show. The WFA’s third installment picks the party up where its Level 2 predecessor left it off by bringing fans, the pulsating beats, electrifying sights and tantalizing beauties it has become famous for. At the center of all the excitement, are seven of the sport’s most anticipated match-ups, including a face-off of epic proportions between MMA veterans Frank Trigg and Pat Miletich for the WFA Welterweight title. For those who dare enter "Where the fight club meets the night club," the WFA is back with the ultimate in freestyle competition!
Internationally-revered Frank Trigg returns to the WFA to serve up more devastation… as only he can. Fighting out of the rAw team, Trigg’s top-notch wrestling skills, sheer aggression and confident attitude have made him one of the most talked about MMA athletes today. With victories over Jean Jacques Machado, Fabiano Iha, as well as a close loss in a back and forth war against Japanese samurai Hayato Sakurai, Trigg has certainly proved his mettle within the combat arena. Clamoring for more top-notch competition, "Twinkle Toes" may finally get his wish in the form of living legend Pat Miletich.
Pat "the Croation Sensation" Miletich proudly makes his WFA debut on the heels of a prolific MMA career that has spanned seven years of active competition. As one of the MMA’s most influential figures in the sport, Miletich’s focus on mastering all aspects of the fight game have served him well in his reign as a six-time world champion. Looking to continue his tradition of solid performances, Miletich views his move to the WFA as the next logical step in his career. "I’m excited to fight for John Lewis and the WFA — he knows how to treat fighters — and I’m excited to fight Frank Trigg. Frank’s a tough guy, and at this point in my career, that’s the only type of guys I want to fight." With this bout to be joined by six other enticing pairings, the WFA: Level 3 will surely become one of the hottest tickets in town!
Don’t miss out on the next level in MMA competition. Stay tuned for ticket sales information on the way.
