We would like to comment on the strange coincidence of this show having an almost identical name as UCC’s "BATTLE FOR THE BELTS." It has been a tradition since the inception of the USWF to have all of the champions defend their titles in the fall of each year in a show called "BATTLE OF THE BELTS." We hope it causes no confusion and we would like to wish continued success to the UCC.

The Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation returns to Amarillo November 25th 2000, with "BATTLE OF THE BELTS." This will be the USWF’s first show in the city’s premier venue, the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum. The Civic Center is the home of Amarillo’s professional hockey team, The Amarillo Rattlers. The venue also hosts the WWF, WCW, all of the major concerts and most other large events that come to town. It is a big step forward for the mixed martial arts in the North Texas Area.

This will also be the USWF’s first show under the state of Texas’ new combative sports regulations. Shoot fighting is now an official sport sanctioned by the state.

USWF XVIII promises to be one of the best USWF shows to date. There will be an eight-man tournament to fill the vacant USWF Middleweight Champion Title, and and all of the current USWF champions will defend their titles.

The fight for the USWF World Heavyweight Championship could prove to be a battle as "The Iron Man" Travis Fulton comes down to Texas to take on Evan Tanner who has recently returned to fighting after a lay off of over a year. Both fighters bring a great deal of experience to the ring, but Travis is by far the more experienced of the two with over a hundred fights to his credit. Both are veterans of the Ultimate Fighting Championships, Pancrase, and Extreme Challenge. Fulton has also fought in the IFC, and RINGS. Both are known for their aggressive styles which should make for a very exciting fight.

UFC and Extreme Fighting veteran, Paul Jones, defends the Light Heavyweight Championship against local favorite Junior Baeza. Jones brings much more experience to the ring, but a game Baeza can’t be counted out.

World Lightweight Champion, Brent Medley takes on the challenge of up and coming fighter Leonard Garcia. Their last fight was a 20 minute war with Medley earning the decision. If this fight is exciting as the last it will definitely be one worth seeing.

The retirement of Ali Elias has left the USWF middleweight title vacant. Eight hungry fighters will battle it out in a tournament to see who gets to take home the title.

We also welcome the official HOOTERS calendar girls who will be working the ring. What more could you ask for than a night full of great fights and beautiful women in bikinis.

Fights began at 7:30 pm.
Tickets can be purchase at the Civic Center box office, Randy’y Music Mart, or can be charged by phone at 806-378-3096
