    I figured it was official because I had seen ads for the card with that match on it already.

    It was never official, but we knew about it so we've been reporting it whenever discussing the card.

    Not too excited about Pele, he's gone downhill since he beat Hughes. Hopefully they can get a big name to fight him like Jeremy Horn or someone.

    Jorge Oliveira vs Marvin Eastman is a nice edition though, as is the rematch between "Razor" Rob vs Sarmiento. Should be 2 wars.

    I thought the Mayhem vs Sincaid match was announced awhile ago?

    WFA announces more matches today (from the press release):

    Jason “Mayhem” Miller (14-4-0) vs. Lodune Sincaid (9-2-0)
    This bout pits two of the sport’s youngest and most over-the-top personalities against one another. After a successful tour of duty building a name for himself in Icon Sport events in Honolulu, the man they call “Mayhem” brings his one-of-a-kind persona to the WFA to face Lodune Sincaid at King of the Streets. Sincaid, best-known for his role on the first season of Spike TV’s “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series, brings a respectable 9-2-0 record into the ring in a bout that will determine which of these rising stars is most poised to take his game to the next level.

    Rob McCullough vs. Harris Sarmiento
    The man they call “Razor” gets a chance at vengeance as these two face each other for the first time since Sarmiento defeated McCullough two years ago. Since that bout, McCullough’s been a flawless 6-0-0, while Sarmiento’s path has been marked by several defeats. McCullough’s motivation will be for redemption, while Sarmiento knows a victory at WFA: King of the Streets could get his career back on a winning track.

    Jorge Oliveira (2-1-0) vs. Marvin Eastman (12-6-0)
    This bout features veteran against “up and comer” as the Chute Academy-groomed Oliveira looks to further establish himself in the sport with a victory over MMA veteran Eastman. On July 22nd, Eastman’s sights will be fixed firmly on reclaiming the top-ranked status he once held in the sport, despite the youthful ambitions of Oliveira.

    Jose Landi-Jons (21-11-0) vs. TBD
    While many North American MMA fans may not be familiar with Landi-Jons, past wins over UFC champion Matt Hughes and Pat Militich should be enough to illustrate the talent and legitimacy of the man many know as “Pele.” The Brazilian submission specialist has 21 career victories and actually has as many victories coming by way of knockout as he does by submission. He looks to etch his name in the minds of North American MMA fans at WFA: King of the Streets.

    These four matchups round out an already unparalleled fight card featuring the long-anticipated return of Bas Rutten as he squares off against Kimo, “Rampage” Jackson’s rebirth in North America taking on Matt Lindland, undefeated rising MMA star Lyoto Machida facing Lion’s Den veteran Vernon “Tiger” White, former UFC veteran heavyweights Ricco Rodriguez against Ron Waterman, and Ivan Salaverry taking on Art Santore.
