What happens when arguably the best scientific pro wrestlers in the world faces a No Gi jiujitsu World Champion and undefeated kickboxer? Fight fans will find out in Dallas next Saturday night when Timothy Thatcher fights Douglas James.

MLW today announced Timothy Thatcher vs. Douglas James at MLW: War Chamber at the NYTEX Sports Centre in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area on September 7. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $10 at http://www.MLWTickets.com.

A former No Gi jiujitsu World Champion trained by the founder of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, Eddie Bravo, Douglas James is one of the top prospects on the California pro wrestling circuit, recently signing with MLW.

With a total of 15 mixed martial arts fights between both amateur and professional, Douglas James mixes an array of strikes, grappling, high flying and submission wrestling to an ever-growing arsenal.

While experienced in the MMA cage and kickboxing ring, Douglas James will be in deep waters against an opponent with a world of experience. Literally.

A top ranked globetrotting grappler, Thatcher most recently honed his skills in the United Kingdom and Germany. This submission artist has one of the most effective armbars in the sport including a lethal cross armbar and Fujiwara armbar.  Complimenting these joint crippling submissions Thatcher is often known to crumple opponents with his brilliant backdrop driver.

“Styles make fights,” said MLW CEO and founder Court Bauer. “This one could be explosive if they elect to stand… but what happens when a world class grappler goes to the mat with a World Champion No Gi BJJ guy?”
