FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

SPRATT TO FACE VON FLUE WHEN UWC — INVASION COMES TO NATIONS CAPITAL

UWSD — Ultimate Warrior Sports Development, LLC today announced the main event for their upcoming UWC — INVASION show which takes place Saturday, April 26, 2008 at the GMU-Patriot Center in the Washington , DC metropolitan market. This will be the UWC’s third show and official entrance into mainstream MMA. UWC is signing a mix of UFC vets, up-and-comers, from MMA stars’ teams, and notable standouts from the established promotions on the verge of stardom themselves. An indication of the profile of this company is the main event which features The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) and UFC vets Pete Spratt vs. Jason Von Flue. With a combined eighteen years of MMA fighting between Von Flue and Spratt this fight has both the potential for standup fireworks and deep strategy.

As part of coach Matt Hughes’ team on TUF 2 Von Flue defeated coach Rich Franklin’s student Jorge Gurgel before losing to Joe Stevenson in the finals. Von Flue has also fought Alex Karalexis, Luke Cummo, and Joe Riggs in the UFC as well as Ralph Gracie’s Luke Stewart and headliner Cung Le in Strikeforce.

Thought of as one of the most dangerous MMA strikers Pete Spratt is the ideal opponent for Von Flue. Spratt first entered the UFC before TUF was created, defeating TUF season 7 coach Zack Light in UFC 37.5 and current EliteXC champion Robbie Lawler in UFC 42. Spratt participated in TUF Season 4’s “vet season” where in the finals he defeated Jeremy Jackson. In Spratt’s last UFC fight last June he met defeat as Tamdan McCrory beat him with a triangle choke. Spratt moved on to HDNet fights where he picked up two more wins until Spratt’s latest fight ended in controversy due partly to undefended punches Spratt took after the bell ending round one rang.

This battle of TUF/UFC vets is only scratching the surface of the upcoming card. Other UFC vets as well as up-and-comers from vets’ teams are expected to be announced in the next week. UWSD President John Lewis and CEO S. Marcello Foran are currently in negotiations with TV Networks in the US and Europe as well as potential sponsors.
The UWC is also preparing to film their own version of an MMA TV show titled the “Making of an Ultimate Warrior”. Ultimate Warrior Challenge promises to be the biggest MMA event ever held in the Nation’s Capital/Washington DC area.
