LOS ANGELES, C.A.--(June 29, 2011)-- ProElite, Inc (PELE.PK), today announces its next step in mixed martial arts (MMA) with a fight in Oahu, Hawaii on Saturday, August 27th.

The chosen venue is the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Waikiki, the world-famous beach resort destination, marking the third time ProElite will bring its MMA event to the Arena.

The August event is ProElite’s first under the new ownership of Stratus Media Group Inc. (SMDI. OB). Stratus Media Group recently closed the acquisition of 95% of ProElite.
