Takedown Entertainment Signs Agreement With Absolute Fighting Championship

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 7, 2011) - Takedown Entertainment Inc. (www.takedownentertainment.com) (OTCBB: TKDN), an authority in the business of mixed martial arts, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire worldwide distribution rights to past and future MMA fights with Absolute Fighting Championship, plus certain rights to the brand and sponsorship representation.

A trailblazing promotion in MMA, the Absolute Fighting Championship (AFC) was formed in 2003 by Dan Lambert and featured many top-name Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) competitors such as Thiago Alves, Kurt Pellegrino, and Joe Lauzon.

AFC was also known for its inside connection to the most renowned MMA training gym in Florida, American Top Team (ATT), which produced title contenders such as Antonio Silva, Brian Bowles, and Mike Brown. Dan Lambert and head coach Ricardo Liborio opened the ATT doors in 2001 and within five years the gym spawned over twenty franchise locations. ATT fighters have competed worldwide in promotions such as the UFC, PRIDE Fighting Championship, DREAM, K-1, Strikeforce and Bellator. With ATT's success, the AFC promotion was put on hiatus in 2006.

Now, a renewed interest has led the Absolute Fighting Championship to be reborn under the leadership of ATT affiliate Roger Krahl. Dan Lambert stated, "I trust Roger to run the show completely. He has ATT blood in his veins and a passion for the sport. With Roger and Takedown helping us return to the vision we had, the future is unlimited. The partnership with Takedown will recapture our AFC dream."
