Apr 12, 2013
(PRESS RELEASE) -- New Jersey's premier mixed-martial-arts promotion, The Darwish Brothers, will return on Saturday, May 18, to the Xanadu Theater at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel in Atlantic City for "Extreme Fighting Championships: MMA MANIA".

Featuring high-intensity MMA action in a world-class casino setting and many of the New Jersey area's best young talent, Extreme Fighting Championships: MMA MANIA will be The Darwish Brothers' latest festival of pain at the beautiful Trump Taj Mahal.

Both of the night's high-octane co-main events will feature extremely popular battlers, each coming off victories in their last fights, vying for highly coveted EFC titles.

In the first co-main, colorful fan favorite Nick Mauriello (4-2) of New Jersey will face equally popular Pennsylvania resident Frank Doyle (3-1) for the vacant EFC Super Welterweight Championship in a fight that will have both fighters' loyal armies of fans out in force.

In the other co-main event, New Jersey cage-fighting hero Montsir Mohammad (2-2) will face New York's well-regarded Christopher Vallaro (5-2) for the EFC Light Heavyweight Championship. Mohammad will be looking to win his first MMA title against the formidable Vallaro, who hasn't lost since 2009.

"March's event at the world-class Taj Mahal was a wonderful success and we are looking forward to continuing that with this fantastic event," said promoter Hani Darwish. "We will be announcing more fantastic matchups in the near future. This is an event and a venue that MMA fans don't want to miss."

"Both the co-main events are between fighters who bring out hundreds of fans. The night of the show will be an amazing spectacle with rival camps cheering their heroes on to victory. This is the type of show my brother and I envisioned when we began promoting many years ago," said Wally Darwish.
