    Marez to Headline Primal MMA Inaugural Card

    8/2/2007 Tijuana – Primal Mixed Martial Arts’ “The
    Next Level” on August 11th will feature in its main event Chris “Monster” Marez (4-1), who is coming off
    an impressive unanimous decision victory over Wesley
    “Cabbage” Correira in Hawaii’s X-1 Extreme Fighting.
    Marez, 6’2” 280 pounds, is a hungry fighter ready to
    establish his name in the HW division.
    In another featured bout, Team Quest fighter Jesse
    Taylor (4-1) will take on WEC veteran Kenny Ento
    (7-2). Taylor, a standout collegiate wrestler at Cal
    State Fullerton, now trains at Team Quest’s camp in
    Temecula, CA with the likes of Dan Henderson and
    Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou. Should Ento take the fight
    to the ground where he has submitted many of his
    opponents, he might be surprised at the Jiu Jitsu of
    Taylor who has been working with Vinincus Malghaes.
    Also featured on the card is what is sure to be an
    action packed featherweight bout between Shawn “Quiet Storm” Bias (11-4) and Primal MMA Auditions winner and local favorite Antonio Duarte (6-1). The always entertaining Bias, whose only loss at 145 came at the hands of Urijah Faber, is coming off a win at the
    Palace Fight Championships in which he claimed the PFC Featherweight Championship.
    Duarte, who trains at Entram Vale Todo Gym in Tijuana, impressed judges Urijah Faber and KJ Noons at the Primal Auditions on June 9th. At only 20 years of age Duarte will face his most difficult test yet in Bias.

    Duarte will be representing the camp of talented
    Mexican MMA fighters at Entram Gym, the epicenter of
    MMA in Tijuana.

    Foro - Jai Alai Palace, Tijuana, Mexico. The venue is
