Johnny Rees takes on Chris Wells in MMA Big Show main event set for July 25th in Indiana

INDIANA (July 20, 2009) – Indiana’s top fight promotion, MMA Big Show, is putting on a show that can only be labeled as “UNSTOPPABLE.” The Belterra Casino Resort & Spa in Veevay, Indiana will be the site, and 12 professional and amateur bouts will be presented.

Featured in the main event will be two-time UFC veteran Johnny “The Hater Hurter” Rees taking on Jorge Gurgel Academy Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt Chris Wells in an anticipated bout. Sporting a 10-2 record with eight submission victories, Rees is a respected ground fighter with a desire to prove he’s amongst the best of the best. Standing in his way is Chris Wells, who’s looking to leap-frog his opponent and make a name for himself.

In the co-main event, MMA Big Show Welterweight Champion “Relentless” Roger Bowling will tackle the challenge presented by hungry up-and-comer Devon Plaisance. One of the fastest-rising stars in MMA today, Bowling was scheduled to main event MMA Big Show’s last event, “CONVICTION,” but had to pull out due to injury. But his challenger has no plans to roll over and let the champion use him as a stepping stone. Plaisance’s last bout was with UFC veteran Cale Yarbrough, and he’s stepping up his game even more in anticipation of his co-main event with Bowling.

In addition, “UNSTOPPABLE” will debut its very first female MMA fight. “UNSTOPPABLE” is the next step for one of the fastest-growing MMA promotions in the United States, MMA Big Show.

In addition to the main and co-main events, the card will feature heavyweight action between two undefeated blue-chippers, “The Country Boy” Dave Hess (3-0) and Steve “Lambchop” Banks (4-0).

With 12 pro and amateur fights scheduled for “UNSTOPPABLE,” MMA Big Show is poised to show it belongs amongst the big promotions of MMA. Known for the hot MMA action they provide, Big Show has featured an incredible mix of former UFC fighters and rising stars, and recently secured a TV broadcast deal.
