    HOLANDA vs. STOUT FOR TKO LW TITLE!

    TKO ADDS A THIRD TITLE FIGHT

    TO ALREADY STACKED CARD!

    MONTREAL, QUEBEC (CANADA), January 2nd 2007 - TKO Major League MMA is
    delighted to give their loyal fans an astonishing New Year’s present with
    the announcement of a third Championship fight to the already stacked, TKO
    28: INEVITABLE card! TKO World Lightweight Champion, SAM “HANDS OF STONE”
    STOUT (10-2-1) returns to defend his title against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black
    belt, FABIO “THE MASTERMIND” HOLANDA (4-4-0). This fight has been
    anticipated for many years by knowledgeable Canadian MMA fans who appreciate
    how intriguing and exciting this match-up is! If there was any doubt about
    this being the best card in Canadian history, there’s certainly none now!

    Holanda has a black belt in jiu-jitsu and he was Georges St-Pierre’s
    grappling instructor for many years. One should be careful not to judge him
    by his .500 record. All of his losses came to top notch UFC veterans. He’s
    only lost once since dropping to 155 lbs. Holanda looked tremendously
    impressive in his last TKO appearance stopping the undefeated Alvin Robinson
    via ground and pound, late in round two. Holanda knows he can grapple with
    the best in the world at 155 lbs and he plans to utilize those skills to
    capture the TKO World Championship!

    Stout is also coming off a remarkable performance as he exacted his revenge
    by submitting the submission artist, Jay Estrada. Stout is undoubtedly one
    of the most exciting Lightweight fighters in the world. His ruthless
    aggression and punishing strikes have made him a TKO favorite; He’s also
    been in some of the most memorable battles in the company’s history such as
    his fights against Dave Goulet, Donald Ouimet and Tyler Jackson. Stout is
    very young and hungry and he’s determined not to let anything or anyone come
    between him and his title!

    This is a battle between TKO’s best Lightweight striker versus TKO’s best
    Lightweight grappler! If Holanda can take Stout down, he’ll try to end the
    fight quickly as he did against Canadian Lightweight standouts, Kultar Gill
    and Blake Fredrickson. On their feet, Stout’s striking is in a different
    class and he is also known for being a cardio machine and will likely posses
    the edge the longer this five round fight lasts.

    Although the rule of thumb is that the superior grappler normally defeats
    the striker, Stout’s recent victory by armbar proves that he can’t be
    considered a one dimensional fighter. Still, Holanda’s ground game is on
    another planet compared to most! This fascinating championship fight is set
    to rock the Bell Centre!

    TKO would also like to announce one fight card change as Tyler Jackson has
    withdrawn from his scheduled fight against STEPHANE DUBE (3-1-0). JAMES
    MARTINEZ (4-7-0) will step in to get his well deserved rematch! Their last
    fight was one of the most anticipated fights of the night for TKO 27,
    however it came to an abrupt end after Martinez’ vision was obstructed after
    receiving a toe in the eye from Dube’s kick. Dube was awarded the victory
    by TKO, but he promised to give Martinez another chance. Now, these two
    outstanding strikers will step back in the ring in what promises to be one
    of the most exciting fights of the New Year!
