MLW today announced Séptimo Dragon vs. Douglas James for MLW: FIGHTLAND at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday, February 1. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
The middleweight division heats up as Séptimo Dragon takes on MMA/kickboxer turned pro wrestling Douglas James in a bout with championship implications. A middleweight challengers bout, matchmakers will be watching both men’s performance as future contenders for the middleweight title come into focus at FIGHTLAND.
Séptimo Dragon enters the bout looking to pounce up the rankings, but in order to do so, he’ll have to stay in the air and unleash sky combat against the battle-tested combat sports athlete Douglas James. James, who has been training with Timothy Thatcher behind closed doors, looks to showcase his new submissions and grappling techniques. Already a ferocious fighter with his blistering strikes and never say die attitude, the 2020 version of Douglas James promises to impress when tested.
Meaning the “Seventh Dragon,” Séptimo Dragon has been featured in top Mexican organizations and has been labelled by the Mexican media as an emerging star. Nicknamed “Rey del Aire,” meaning the King of the Air, Dragon is a spectacular aerial athlete. Using moves such as the Corkscrew Plancha and Moonsault Bodyblock Suicida to overwhelm adversaries, Dragon moves at supersonic speed to blitz opponents.
