Warrior Nation Xtreme Fighters Alliance Press Release

On behalf of our entire team at Warrior Nation Xtreme Fighters Alliance, I would like to formally introduce this new breed MMA promotion to New England’s mixed martial arts community.  Please find the below attached informational write-up and feel free to share with those amongst us in the rapidly expanding world of combat sport!
Warrior Nation Xtreme Fighters Alliance is a highly organized and professional MMA Promotion based out of Western Massachusetts that has been founded by Jesse Camp with expertise and consulting provided by Marco Alvan. We pride ourselves on providing a firm platform from which true "Warriors" can emerge, develop, and maintain growth throughout the combat sporting industry! We realize that today's competitors are cutting edge in the training they acquire and look to promote a positive environment where they can showcase their talent and hone the many skills and techniques learned by today's Mixed Martial Artist and fight sport competitors alike! Jesse Camp is an MSAC Licensed Promoter and Matchmaker for Warrior Nation Xtreme Fighters Alliance and looks to promote the best live fighting events Western Massachusetts has ever seen.  Progressive growth is anticipated with a very realistic goal of transitioning to Pro-Am MMA in the very near future as well as grappling and kickboxing tournaments.
On Saturday, February 19th, 2011 we're bringing back live MMA fights to the Hu Ke Lau in Chicopee, MA as we kick off “Return of the Warriors!” Those who made it out last time know what it's all about and there's just no way possible to have a bad time at the Lau! We're bringing you New England's best Mixed Martial Arts Teams, Coaches, and Amateur Fighters! All this takes place right inside a 20’ Hexagon Cage inside the Hu Ke Lau showroom and with fully tiered table seating, there's not a bad seat in the house! There is still space on the card for matches and we encourage coaches to get their fighters info submitted quickly to secure a spot!
With Jesse Camp’s prior service and strong ties to the Marine Corps, Warrior Nation Xtreme Fighters Alliance announces that they will be fighting for the Red Sox Organization and Mass General Hospitals combined efforts in the "Run To Home Base."  This is a  fund-raiser for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan which last year raised over 2 million dollars.  Some of the proceeds from this event are being utilized to sponsor registered runners who will be heading to Boston to partake in the roadrace with a minimum pledge of $1,000 per runner requirement! We will also be holding a 50/50 raffle with all the proceeds going towards this same great cause! If interested, visit for more information and sponsors looking to help can message Warrior Nation X.F.A. direct under the contact tab at or by email at:
The cage fight-night atmosphere at the Hu Ke Lau is going to be nothing short of intense and if you like MMA, you're going to LOVE this!! Get yourself geared up for an outstanding evening with a full night of caged MMA fights, our gorgeous Warrior Girls, fine polynesian dining, and a full drink menu all while helping a great cause!! The "After-Party" is right upstairs with DJ LAMAROSSA & NATALIYA of LAMA_NATA_HOU5_MAFIA spinning the hottest live mix of club, house, and Euro beats and TONY LAIRES LIVE ON DRUMS!  This crew is going to make a great time even better!
Without a full spoiler, I will give some highlights of what to expect.  The night is sure to be explosive with MMA Fighters representing Team Link, The Factory, NY Boxing, Sityodtong, South Shore Sport Fighting, Fighting Arts Academy, Strike Zone MMA, Miletich Fighting Systems-NH, American Fight Team, Cage Strikers, CNY MMA, Tapout Boston, NY Jiu Jitsu, Mohawk Valley MMA and more! We have "The Singing Trooper", Sergeant Daniel M. Clark, leading off with our National Anthem, Cathlin Daley on point for photography, Veteran Ring Announcer Bill Carpenter as the "Warrior Voice" and Bill Bell, A.K.A. DJ Adapt taking care of intros.  The absolutely gorgeous and multi-talented Shayna Maria Frasco gets inside the minds of the fighters and guests with live interviews to include both pre and post-fight and special guests include UFC Light Heavy Weight Sensation, Matt “The Hammer” Hamill and World Muay Thai Champion, Cosmo Alexandre!
Pending MSAC approval, the card exposes several MMA debuts including Leon Campbell (145/Sityodtong), Ryan Komich (145/FAA), Kyle Burns (185/CNY MMA), and Paul McLean (160/Mohawk Valley) and returns by Rogelio Bracetty (155/Link) and Kemran Lachinov (170/AFT).  Lachinov (170/AFT/4-2) will rematch against Matt Leddick (NY Boxing/170/3-4) who at last meeting had a complete war!  Other confirmed highlights include a No-Gi Grappling Match between Fighting Arts Academy’s MMA Fighter, Leon Davis (170/6-2 MMA) and Team Link’s Pro MMA Fighter, John Manley (170/5-1 MMA).  Both are extremely talented on the ground and this should be an exciting and dynamic match-up!  Two more MMA matches to watch for will be Fran Collins (185/The Factory/2-0) vs. Chris Stone (185/CNY MMA/1-1) and Camillo Arredondo (170/Tapout/0-0) vs. Nick Alley (170/MFS-NH/0-0).  Of pure interest to most will be the main event which brings out a young yet skilled and tough, Brian Beaury of N.Y. Jiu Jitsu vs. Bruno Tostes of Mohawk Valley MMA.  Beaury, a BJJ Purple Belt under Ryan Clark, with strong defense and solid striking, enters the cage with a 2-0 MMA record and looks to remain undefeated.  Tostes, a Renzo Gracie BJJ Black Belt, owns and operates Bruno BJJ, is the Head BJJ Coach for Mohawk Valley MMA and most noteably serves as Matt “The Hammer” Hamill’s primary BJJ instructor!  Clark states that Beaury is young, talented , and hungry looking for the best to compete with and this serves as a great challenge.  This has the potential to be an exciting match-up with Tostes developing a striking game and Warrior Nation is proud to be the deignated host site as Hamill will coach and introduce Tostes first-hand to his very familiar backyard of MMA!
