THE COUNTDOWN IS ON!

Montreal (Canada) – There is only a few days left until the most star studded MMA event in Canadian history becomes reality. UCC 10TM has created a huge media buzz on both sides of the Quebec/Ontario border which has prompted fight fans from all parts of Canada to anxiously cross the days off their calendars as the time creeps closer and closer.

UCC 10: BATTLE FOR THE BELTS 2002 will feature a double World Championship main event! Renzo Gracie’s disciple, Pride and ADCC veteran SEAN ALVAREZ will go toe to toe with the newest member of Team Extreme, 6’4" – 290 pounds wrestler MIKE RADNOV. This fight will see the first time in UCC history that two athletes of such great size have faced each other… can the UCC "Ring of Fury" handle over 540 pounds of aggression? In the second main-event, UCC fight fans will have the chance to witness a first in MMA history as two Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts will go to war with the UCC World Super Lightweight championship up for grabs. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion WAGNNEY FABIANO worked his stand-up for the past two years and feels more than ready to go to war with the Challenger. BARET "THE FINISHER" YOSHIDA is currently ranked #5 in the world and guarantees he will not miss this great opportunity of becoming a world champion. This bout has captured the imagination of the entire fight community as well as the global grappling community.

Scheduled to fight in the main event, UCC World Middleweight champion JESSE JONES will unfortunately not be able to defend his title as he has torn his triceps during training. Jones was preparing for his first defense against UCC superstar, DAVID "THE CROW" LOISEAU. Loiseau says he will train harder this summer and be even more dangerous for this fight now scheduled for September.

The main events keep coming as UCC Canadian Light Heavyweight champion JEROMIE SILLS returns to defend his title against none other than UCC Canadian Middleweight champion STEVE "LION HEART" VIGNEAULT. These two fighters have a combined 8 knockouts in their UCC careers and are known from coast to coast as explosive striking machines. On June 15th, the bombs will fly as these two great champions meet in the ring. It will be champion vs. champion!

UCC Canadian Welterweight champion JUSTIN "LOAF" BRUCKMANN will be in action to face up and coming star, GEORGES ST-PIERRE with the title on the line. St-Pierre is one of the top young guns in the UCC roster with his superb conditioning, massive strikes, and solid ground game but will all that be enough to overcome the proven devastation and experience of the champion?

RICHARD "MONKEY" NANCOO swings back into action once again as he is looking for his third straight defense of the UCC Canadian Super Lightweight title. Standing in his way is Team Tompkins member, North American Kickboxing champion, and Canadian Pankration champion MARK "THE MACHINE" HOMINICK. Mark has developed quite a name for himself outside of the UCC and now is his chance to prove that he is ready to hang with the big boys of MMA.

UCC and UFC veteran C.J. FERNANDES is back after a devastating 35 second KO win at UCC 8. He will go head to head with none other then PAIN PETERS. After investigating on some of the facts that happened between Pain Peters and a journalist of a local Ottawa newspaper, UCC President Stephane Patry decided to lift Pain’s suspension and the "Bad Guy" will be able to compete and face the toughest challenge of his career. Pain has left a path of destruction behind his UCC journey and promises to bring the hurting onto Fernandes and show the fans in Hull what he’s all about.

Also in action will be the former UCC World Welterweight champion SEAN "PIMP DADDY" PIERSON as he is set to get it on with Renzo Gracie student MARK COLANGELO. Ottawa’s flamboyant warrior ANDY SOCIAL will make his UCC debut when he faces golden glove boxer FREDERIC POIRIER.
