*Fight card subject to change

The main event of the evening will feature TUF (The Ultimate Fighter) veteran, Andy Wang, versus Japanese Shootboxing sensation, Atsuhiro Tsuboi. Tsuboi showcased his skills in AOW12 and fought Dai Shuang Hai to a tough DRAW. Wang is coming off a solid winning streak and wants to continue with a solid performance in his AOW debut. “I have seen Tsuboi in action and he is one tough guy! That’s perfect for me because I’m always looking to fight the toughest guys,” commented Wang.

Rolles Gracie will put his legendary family’s reputation on the line as faces K-1 veteran, Peter “The Chief” Graham. Graham is most recognized for his 2006 stunning KO victory of K-1 Grand Prix winner Badr Hari using his trademark, “Rolling Thunder” spinning kick. In 2008, Graham has made the jump to mixed martial arts where he has fought twice in the Sengoku promotion of Japan. Graham brings his knock out power to Macau at Art of War 14. This fight is a classic striker versus grappler match up.

Also on the card is 2008 heavyweight jiu-jitsu champion, Antonio Braga Neto. He faces MMA veteran Rodney Glunder, who has victories over Cheick Kongo, Valentijn Overeem, Cyrille Diabate, and Melvin Manhoef. Braga Neto will be looking to show why his formidable submission skills make him a rising star in today’s MMA.

Making their AOW debuts will be Michael Costa and Simeon Thoresen. Costa is former product of the world famous Chute Boxe Academy and is now training under the tutelage of former Pride champion Wanderlei Silva. He will bring his aggressive and exciting style to AOW fans on September 26. Simeon Thoresen is a disciple of Dream Lightweight Champion, Joachim Hansen, and is an expert submission grappler and seasoned MMA veteran. Having submitted 10 of his last 11 opponents, Thoresen is looking to add another submission victory to his belt.

    Hope Simeon wins this fight and moves on to a bigger stage. He’s got some potential, just hope his striking is coming around.

    Well I’ve certaintly enjoyed the fights I’ve been able to see and am glad MMA is growing in China but I think it would be too soon to start heralding it “the next big stage”.

    Andy Wang will murder his opponent and have room for a second before the end of the night is done.

    Andy Wang will handle his opponent with devastating fashion, and teach him why his last 2 victories have come via TKO. Think about it…
