After an extremely successful inaugural event, W1 MMA will be back in Gatineau for its second event, W1: UNPLUGGED on June 13th, 2009. Due to upgrades being made at the Robert Guertin Arena, W1 has decided to move this event to the intimate BARIBEAU ARENA. This VIP-only event will only have limited tickets available for purchase and will definitely sell out.
In the main event of the evening, CRAIG `FARMER’ BROWN will look to become the first champion in W1 history as he takes on UFC, Strikeforce and Bodog veteran BILL `THE BUTCHER’ MAHOOD for the W1 Light Heavyweight Title. Brown is coming off a submission victory against Dean Martins at W1: INCEPTION and is looking to win the title against the experienced Mahood; who is coming off a victory against Marcus Hicks.
In the co-main event, MARK `BOOTS’ HOLST will be looking to get back to his winning ways when he faces a Canadian legend JASON `SUMO SAMURAI’ ST. LOUIS. Since his last fight, Holst has been chomping at the bit to get back into the cage and is looking to show his entire MMA pedigree against the experienced St. Louis. St. Louis is extremely familiar to fans in the region as his win over UFC Veteran David `The Crow’ Loiseau and epic wars with Steve Vigneault made St. Louis a Canadian legend.
In a young guns bout, MUSTAFA `MUFASA’ KHALIL is coming off an impressive 56 second victory at W1: INCEPTION and he will face another future superstar in TOM WATERS; who also won his fight in impressive fashion. Both fighters are considered the future of Canada’s featherweight division and the winner is expected to face MIKE `HURRICANE’ HONG at Warrior-1’s next event in October.
Also scheduled to appear are JEFF HARRISON, JOHN FRASER, STEPHANE BERNADEL, TOMMY PARISEAU, CHRISTOPHER BOISVERT, ERIC GIRARD and many other young stars. Limited tickets will be available shortly through TICKETMASTER. For more information visit us at: www.w1mma.com.
