"WHERE THE FIGHT CLUB MEETS THE NIGHT CLUB"

THE "PLAYAS" ARE IN THE HOUSE…

WORLD FIGHTING ALLIANCE ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL LINE-UP FOR NOVEMBER 23RD LEVEL 3 CARD


      LAS VEGAS (October 25, 2002) – Lights! Music! Action! The World Fighting Alliance returns to "Sin City" this Saturday, November 23rd for its third installment. Bringing its unique mix of battling warriors and gyrating beauties to the heart of the Las Vegas strip are Mixed-Martial Arts superstar John Lewis and the King of the Nightclub John Huntington. Touching down at the Aladdin Resort & Casino’s own 5,000-seat venue, WFA: Level 3‘s distinctive blend of combat and unparalleled style will surely elevate this mixed martial arts experience above all others. The stakes are high for these chosen "playas" willing to lay it all on the line. Two championship belts are up for grabs, and with a guest performance by rap music pioneers Naughty by Nature, Level 3 is sure to provide hardcore thrills like never before!
      Frank Trigg: an unstoppable world-class wrestler who’s dominated the competition in the WFA cage and beyond. Pat Miletich: a nine-time world-champion with solid boxing and grappling skills. Vying for the WFA welterweight championship, these two men will meet for the first time to determine who’s the baddest welterweight on the planet. Will the Croatian Sensation’s well-rounded game be too much for the wrestler? Or will the Trigg-machine steamroll over another victim?
      With the WFA light-heavyweight title at stake, Las Vegas’ own Marvin "the Beastman" Eastman will face Alex "the Brazilian Killa" Stiebling in a bout that pits brawler against brawler. The Beastman mauled his way to victory at his last WFA outing, with a solid display of ferocious takedowns and quick hands. Stiebling makes his way to the WFA cage via a successful run in Japan, where audiences marveled this promising newcomer’s aggressiveness and fortitude. Only one of these top competitors will walk away with the belt. It all comes down to just who wants it the most…

      Two of the toughest lightweights in the sport clash in co-main event action, as Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro and Chris "the Westside Strangler" Brennan will test their high-level jiu-jitsu skills in the cage. Shaolin continues to impress each time he does battle. He put his last WFA opponent to sleep with a choke and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Brennan’s move down to the lightweight class has already started to make waves in the division with a recent and impressive performance against one of Japan’s best. Can Shaolin overwhelm the Westside Strangler? Or will Brennan’s vast experience prove to be too much for the Brazilian warrior?
