    Washington D.C. (April 21, 2010) – UWC® 8 JUDGEMENT DAY is coming! Ultimate Warrior Challenge (UWC) founder and CEO S. Marcello Foran announced that the east coast’s professional MMA leader is making its highly-anticipated return to the Washington D.C. region (its sixth area show) with UWC 8 JUDGEMENT DAY scheduled for Saturday, May 22, 2010 at George Mason University’s Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA. Tickets, starting at only $28.50, are on sale and can be purchased at all area Ticketmaster outlets and through www.ticketmaster.com.
     
    UWC Bantamweight World Champion Mike “The Hulk” Easton (9-1) will defend his belt against dangerous cage veteran Ryan “Lion” Diaz (17-11) in the show’s Main Event. Several other familiar faces to UWC fans are scheduled to compete on the card featuring up to 10 total fights. They include Easton’s teammates Timothy (formerly Reshad) Woods and Ron “Choir Boy” Stallings, local female favorite Iman “Mannie” Achhal and a match between high-flying featherweight John “The Magician” Dodson and Virginia’s own undefeated Jessie “Mountain Man” Riggleman. Unbeaten Cuban flyweight and Olympic Bronze Medalist Alexis Vila will make his UWC debut on the card.
     
    Easton, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt fighting out of the Maryland-based Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts, possesses an arsenal of weapons led by his powerful striking and solid submissions which he has utilized in posting nine wins in ten bouts. Currently ranked 25th in the world by the USA TODAY / SB Nation Consensus MMA Rankings, the D.C. native has successfully defended his championship twice since defeating Justin Robbins to win the belt on February 21, 2009. He remains a crowd favorite with his attractive fighting style, easygoing nature outside of the cage and an infectious enthusiasm for the sport.
     
    Diaz enters the championship bout with world-class experience as a former two-time King of the Cage World Champion and Canadian Muay Thai Champion, among other accolades achieved during his ten-year pro career. Originally from Canada now fighting out of Arizona Combat Sports, he has notable fights against Abel Cullum, Nam Phan, Eddie Yagin, Steve Claveau, Kola Koka, and Thierry Quenneville while competing in top promotions such as Shooto, Superbrawl, Shootboxing Japan, K-U Japan and Abu Dhabi.
     
    Doors will open at 6:00 pm with the first bout scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm. Tickets, priced at $28.50, $38.50, $58.50, $78.50 and $128.50 (plus applicable service charge), are on sale now and can be purchased through Ticketmaster by logging onto www.ticketmaster.com, calling 703-573-SEAT, 202-397-SEAT or 410-547-SEAT or by visiting any Ticketmaster outlet, including the Patriot Center box office (703-993-3030).
