"As a promoter for the past 20 years I look forward to forging relationships with professional organizations like Evolve Wrestling," MMA & Sports Extravaganza President James B. Jefferson said. "They do things first class with their very athletic brand of fast pace pro wrestling. I am excited about our future."

Here is the lineup for the MMA portion of the event:

"The way that MMA is presented has had a huge influence on us," EVOLVE Co-Founder Gabe Sapolsky said. "It will be really interesting to see what happens when the two worlds collide this Saturday. I’m excited to see what the MMA demonstration adds to the event before the EVOLVE card takes place. The best part is the fans get to see the MMA exhibitions, EVOLVE pro wrestling and the post show Extreme Hotties contest for one ticket price."
