Takedown Entertainment Appoints Matt Hume to Advisory Board

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2011) - Takedown Entertainment Inc. ( (OTCBB: TKDN), an authority in the business of mixed martial arts, is pleased to announce the appointment of Matt Hume to the Advisory Board of Takedown Entertainment.

Matt "The Wizard" Hume is arguably one of the most respected men in mixed martial arts today. During his career he boasted wins over formerly undefeated world Shooto champion Erik Paulson and formerly unbeaten Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Pat Miletich. His experience and reputation have led him to train some of the most talented fighters in the world such as UFC veterans Rich Franklin and Chris Leben, and Strikeforce and PRIDE Fighting Championship stalwart, Josh Barnett. Hume's famed training gym is AMC Martial Arts in Kirkland, Washington, where he also runs his fight promotion, Genesis Fights.

As one of the most talented grapplers in the MMA world, Matt Hume has impressed many including Sheik Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates. His 45-second victory over Olympic gold medalist Kenny Monday led to being asked to train the Prince and his combat team personally. A feat like this was only typical for those in the legendary Gracie Jiu Jitsu family. During the training, the Royal Prince was inspired to start the Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championship and Hume celebrated by appearing in the event's debut. Through his cultivation of the upper echelon of contenders now seen in modern MMA, Matt Hume remains a working pioneer of the sport.

"After meeting with the management of Takedown and listening to their vision, I felt I would be a good fit for the company. Combining my experience in all areas of the business and sport of MMA, this opportunity with Takedown will provide me with an exciting new branch of business in MMA. Takedown's product will fill a void in the current MMA market with the fans while becoming a strong asset to the current players. I'm happy to be on board with Takedown and excited to be a part of bringing the next wave of MMA entertainment to the fans."

"Adding Matt Hume to our team is just another example of Takedown's upward surge," affirmed Peter E. Wudy, President and CEO of Takedown Entertainment. "We are elated with his association. It's the rich experience and talent that Mr. Hume brings to the table that will accelerate Takedown's momentum forward."

As an Advisor to Takedown Entertainment, Mr. Hume's role is to assist in the development of new affiliations in the MMA industry including international MMA fight promoters, providing advice and direction on company directives, and supporting the marketing and growth of the Takedown brand on a global scale.
