Area favorites Adriano Nasal, Mike Powell and John-David Shackelford, all of Memphis, and Seth Kleinbeck of Stuttgart, Ark., will be featured in undercard matches of a spectacular card.

Nasal (4-1), a lightweight, is a submission-wrestling fighter. A champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he teaches the dangerous craft as an instructor at Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu when not in the ring. Nasal will tangle with Javier Vazquez (10-2), a veteran submission fighter from Pomona, Calif.

Welterweight Pyle (12-4-1) combines a variety of MMA techniques, including tae kwon do, judo and karate. Nicknamed “Quicksand” for his ability to draw in opponents and methodically wear them down, Pyle will face Ross “The Boss” Ebanez (14-4-2) from Hilo, Hawaii.

A fighter known for his submission style, welterweight Shackelford (7-4) will take on Edson Berto (10-3-1) of Orlando, Fla. Kleinbeck (6-3), a physician by trade, is known as “The Doctor” for his ability to inflict pain and make opponents feel sick. The middleweight is pitted against Japan’s Riki Fukuda (6-2).
