Live Internet PPV to Feature Pro MMA Fight Debuts of Hendricks and Roller

MOTC XVI “Ultimate Night Of Champions” showcases elite wrestlers, highlighted by Rosholt and Bradley title fights.

*TEAM TAKEDOWN OFFERS TEN BOUTS, INCLUDING
SIX TITLE FIGHTS, FOR $9.95 AT www.WatchThisFight.com

ARLINGTON, TX (SEPTEMBER 14, 2007) — Team Takedown, an elite MMA fighter management company, today announced that its “Ultimate Night of Champions” fight card (part of the “Masters of the Cage XVI” series) will be broadcast live on the Internet as a streaming-video Pay-Per-View (PPV). The event takes place Friday, September 28th and is close to selling out the Coca-Cola Bricktown Event Center in downtown Oklahoma City, OK.

Ted Ehrhardt, managing partner of Team Takedown (TTD), felt that this historic card would be the perfect “PPV” for one of the most publicized MMA fights ever, especially given the success of MOTC XV this past July: that event, which featured the pro MMA fight debuts of TTD fighters Jake Rosholt and Eric Bradley, completely sold out the same venue. (Their fights can be seen at www.teamtakedownfighters.com in their entirety.)
“Given the fact that MOTC XV sold out, to the point where we had to turn folks away at the door, we wanted to be sure that, this time, all fans everywhere can watch this historic event, Johny Hendricks’ first professional MMA fight,” he said. Ehrhardt is offering the PPV broadcast at the pre-event price of only $9.95 that comes with a complete, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee.

Those who wait until the day of the event will have to pay $14.95, but will still receive the same no-questions-asked money-back guarantee, according to Ehrhardt. The PPV can be purchased at www.WatchThisFight.com.

The “Ultimate Night of Champions” is a ten-bout lineup that includes six championship title fights, headlined by the debut of two-time NCAA wrestling champion Johny Hendricks and three-time All-American Shane Roller. Both are recent graduates of Oklahoma State University. Also on the card is Hendricks’ former Oklahoma State teammate, three-time NCAA champion Rosholt, as well as a pair of All-American Bradleys: Paul, out of the University of Iowa, and Eric, from from Penn State. Additionally, several other national championship-caliber wrestlers and several well-known, outstanding MMA veterans, are on the card.

In addition to showcasing outstanding athletes, the bouts will be officiated by the finest referee in MMA history, “Big John” McCarthy. “Let’s get it on,” his well-known catch phrase, will be heard often. So will the national-network-recognizable voices of ring announcer A.L. Haizlip and the event announcers: Olympic Gold Medalist Jeff Blatnick and Takedown Wrestling Radio kingpin Scott “Too Hot” Casber.

*PPV is $9.95 when purchased from now until September 27. The price when purchased on September 28 is $14.95. The purchase is guaranteed.
