    MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST, WALLID ISMAIL, FILLED A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE PROMOTERS OF ELITE XC

    Wallid Ismail, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champion, and Mixed
    Martial Arts World Champion, known and respected
    around the world for being the first person to defeat
    three members of the legendary Gracie family, the
    first family of Mixed Martial Arts, has filed a lawsuit in Federal Court, Newark - New Jersey against the promoters of Pro-Elite Inc - Elite XC - whose mixed martial arts event is scheduled to be shown on
    SHOWTIME on February 10, 2007. Ismail claims that
    Pro-Elite raised $10,000,000 and secured the ShowTime event based on his efforts and reputation, with an event known as â"Jungle Fight Championship" and then "squeezed him out". He is claiming, in part,
    an ownership interest in Pro-Elite. The defendants include DOUGLAS DELUCA, a co-executive
    producer for ABC's high profile, late-night vehicle,
    'Jimmy Kimmel Live', CURT BRENDLINGER, a television executive, whose clients have included NBC Sports, Chrysler Motors, Anheuser-Busch and the Los
    Angeles Times, DAVID MARSHAL, a co-founder of
    Youbet.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:UBET), the largest legal
    online gaming company in the U.S. and ERIC PULIER, a member of SANTA MONICA CAPITAL PARTNERS, the company that helped put the private placement together. GARY SHAW, a member of Pro-Elite was not named as a defendant but is mentioned in the complaint as is SHOW TIME. Ismails lawyer ROBERT HANTMAN, who is in California, taking the deposition of STEVEN SEAGAL, says that he and his client are prepared to resolve the case in the court room not the ring.
