Marman Enterprises declares War!!!

In the ever-growing world of mixed martial arts promotions, you'd think there would be little room for one more MMA production with 'big show' finesse. Then Marman Enterprises arrived on the scene with a stacked fight card, heavy enough go head on with the big promos of MMA.

On August 14, 2010, Marman Enterprises, LLC is scheduled to present "War on the Mainland" under its Powerhouse World Promotions banner. Led by CEO Brian Mann, the San Diego-based, start-up promotion's first show will feature many familiar names.  

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia will face off with recently released, former UFC heavyweight Paul Buentello. Sylvia appears to be on a comeback since his career threatening loss to boxer-turned-mixed martial artist Ray Mercer. He has won his last two fights including a second round submission due to punches against 'World's Strongest Man' Mariusz Pudzianowksi. 

In lightweight action, former UFC and WEC standout Jens Pulver is scheduled to take on up-and-coming Mexican fighter Diego Garijo. Pulver looks to redeem himself from a five bout loosing streak. Meanwhile, Pulver stands to be the biggest challenge yet for 4-1 Garijo.

But, it doesn't stop there. The card also brings experienced veterans Terry Martin and Thales Leites. 

Terry Martin is  a common name on the Chicago MMA scene. Martin is a UFC vet who holds a notable win over current UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen. He will meet Bellator veteran Jorge Ortiz.

Thales Leites is another UFC vet on the card. Leites boasts wins over Nate Marquardt and Dean Lister. His most recent win came against TUF 7 contestant, Jesse Taylor at MFC 25. Thales will touch gloves with former Strikeforce fighter Falaniko Vitale at 'War.' 

'War' looks to define "stacked" with its debut production. Doing so on paper is the easy part. On August 14, the real war will be played out in the cage.

Complete fight card:
Tim Sylvia vs. Paul Buentello
Jason Lambert vs. Allan Goes
Thales Leites vs. Falaniko Vitale
Jens Pulver vs. Diego Garijo
Terry Martin vs. Jorge Ortiz
Gustavo Machado vs. Rick Reeves
Joao Silva vs. Erin Beach
