Non-binary competitor Max the Impaler will make their highly anticipated return to Paradigm Pro Wrestling this Wednesday, April 11th, when they face “The Ankle Breaker” Jordan Blade in the main event of a new episode of the UWFi Rules Contenders Series on IndependentWrestling.TV.
Max (0-1 under UWFi Rules) brings a decorated background to shoot-style competition, having previously held the OVW and H20 Women’s Championships. They also hold a power advantage in most fights, as outside of the squared circle, Max previously qualified for the U.S.S. National Strongwoman competition.
Their opponent, Jordan Blade (2-1 under UWFi Rules), is also a powerhouse – having won numerous awards and medals in the field of powerlifting. In addition to being strong, Blade brings an extensive Brazilian jiu-jitsu background to the fight, giving her a reputation for being one of the most skilled submission fighters on the PPW roster.
Max vs Blade will headline a six fight card, airing this Wednesday at 10PM ET / 7PM PT on IWTV.
In the evening’s co-main, New South Heavyweight Champion “The King’s Road Slayer” Derek Neal (2-2 under UWFi Rules) will take on the debuting Ron Bass Jr. The son of multiple-time NWA titleholder “The Outlaw” Ron Bass, Bass Jr will have enormous size advantage in the fight, standing 6”4” and weighing in at 330 pounds.
Another highly anticipated fight on the undercard will see “The UWFi Icon” Dominic Garrini (10-2 under UWFi Rules) face former three-time H20 Champion “Shooter Ronnie” Ron Mathis (1-2 under UWFi Rules). Although he is tied for the most UWFi Rules victories in Paradigm Pro history, Garrini enters the fight with a 2-2 record over his last 4 fights.
In the evening’s remaining preliminary contests, Yoya Shooterweight (1-2) returns after an impressive performance at Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport to face former Indiana Golden Gloves Champion Flash Thompson (4-4), power striker Isaiah Broner (2-1) faces debuting jiu-jitsu and muay thai fighter Damyan Tangra, and Contenders Season One standout Austin Connelly (0-3) faces KOBK’s Hardway Heeter (0-2).
