Press Release
PRIDE Rule Director and Official Trainer, MATT HUME, will be testing a new amateur format for PRIDE matches. Hume will be conducting these matches in cooperation with Charles Pearson and Aric Wiseman’s already successful AXE fighting event on July 30, 2005 at Edmonds Community College in Edmonds, Washington.

The evening will be divided between the current UFCF rule matches and the new experimental PRIDE amateur rule matches. Dream Stage Entertainment / PRIDE President, NOBUYUKI SAKAKIBARA, and top PRIDE executives will be on hand to observe these matches and see first hand why the Pacific Northwest has consistently produced many great fighters over the years.

A full line up will be posted soon. For more fight info go to www.axfighting.com
