Over the weekend, MLW have announced 3 more matches for FIGHTLAND on Saturday, February 1. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
Team Filthy announced that the newest member of their fight team, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gold medalist Dominic Garrini, will compete in an open invitational Prize Fight Challenge.
Team Filthy, captained by “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, features a murderers row of martial artists/fighters, including the undefeated Dominic Garrini. What is a Prize Fight? Well, according to Team Filthy: “Any and all gentlemen with superb athletic ability are welcomed to step up and try to test their prowess. If they can last just 5 minutes in an exhibition against the “bone collector” without conceding, they will win a LARGE sum cash reward. The question is, who will step up in this prize fight to challenge the decorated mixed martial artist?
The World Tag Team Champions Ross and Marshall Von Erich will make their Philadelphia debut at MLW: FIGHTLAND.
“We’ve always wanted to wrestle in the (2300 Arena) Arena,” said Ross Von Erich. “So much history and the fans make it so special. Our whole family is excited about this. It’s a real honour,” said Marshal Von Erich. The third generation Von Erichs have hit Major League Wrestling like a force 5 tornado since debuting last June. Dethroning Dynasty to win the World Tag Team Championship, Ross and Marshall Von Erich have found themselves unexpectedly engulfed in a feud with Tom Lawlor following his betrayal at MLW Fusion on Thanksgiving. What does FIGHTLAND have in store for the brothers?
MLW also today announced Mance Warner vs. Gino Medina. Mance Warner was involved in a backstage incident over the weekend with the Dynasty while going to the pay window to collect his booking fee and bonus. Nearly coming to blows, the elitists called out Ol Mancer with Gino Medina boasting he’d love a shot at the Bucksnort brawler.
Well, it didn’t take much time for Ol Mancer to put his signature on a bout sheet for FIGHTLAND making a match between “The Untouchable” Gino Medina and “The Southern Psychopath” official. Will Warner beat some southern fried respect into the newest member of The Dynasty? Will Gino and his dynastic brethren put the working man in his place?
