‘We have been working hard behind the scenes to put together a solid card for July, and we finally have a card to announce’ starts AFC matchmaker Miguel Iturrate. ‘We have three co-main events, superfights and the undercard is filled with surprises, so we think we have a great event.’

The top bill goes to UFC star Din Thomas, who comes home to Florida a fight that is no gimme at all – he faces tough Steve Berger. This is Berger’s first bout in the 155 lb weight class, a transition he hopes will set his career back on the UFC path. ‘Din has something to lose, and Berger is always hungry, so this bout has the potential for fireworks.’ describes Iturrate.

American TOP TEAM’s Dustin Denes returns to take on international competition, taking on PRIDE star Akira Shoji. ‘Shoji has competed at such a high level for so long, this is another measuring stick for Denes, who is still developing’ explains the matchmaker. ‘We hope to match Dustin against Phillip Miller in September for Phillip’s Southeastern title’ reveals the matchmaker.

Vitor SHAOLIN Ribeiro takes on a brutal challenge in Thai boxer Kultar Gill who at 6’0 tall presents a new look to the BJJ superstar. ‘This is the X factor match – impossible to pick a winner in my book’ reveals the matchmaker.

The undercard features American TOP TEAM and Freestyle Fighting Academy fighters, both locally based, taking on rugged competition from MMA teams based in Wisconsin and Indiana. Justin Wieman v. Jorge Santiago and feature an American TOP TEAM versus Dave Strasser’s Freestyle Academy flavor. In a previous bout, Faircloth owns a win over giving the Wisconsin team the 1-0 edge in the rivalry!
