Sylvia-Buentello, Pulver's Return & More Set For “War On The Mainland”

MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

The reported fight card for the “War On The Mainland” show from Powerhouse World Promotions scheduled for August 14th at the Bren Events Center in Irvine, California is finally starting to take shape.

The main event of the evening will feature former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia in a scheduled five-round vacant PWP heavyweight title bout against another former UFC veteran, Paul “The Headhunter” Buentello.

Also on the card is MMA lightweight pioneer “Little Evil” Jens Pulver, as he puts his plans for retirement on hold to instead make the trip to the cage one more time, as he'll stand across from Bellator Fighting Championships veteran Diego Garijo on the “War On The Mainland” undercard.

A light heavyweight (205 lb.) champion will be crowned on the evening as UFC veteran Jason Lambert meets PRIDE and UFC veteran Allan Goes for the vacant title.

The third and final title up for grabs on the August 14th pay-per view show will be in the middleweight division and will feature a very interesting match-up. Former UFC vets Thales Leites and Falaniko Vitale will square off to crown the vacant champion in the 185 pound weight class.

And finally, rounding out the confirmed undercard thus far in non-title matches will be: Terry Martin vs. Jorge Ortiz, Gustavo Machado vs. Rick Reeves and Joao Silva vs. Erin Beach.

Powerhouse World Promotions presents “War On The Mainland” from the Bren Events Center in Irvine, California live on pay-per view on Saturday, August 14th.
