Future Stars of Wrestling (FSW) and Super Heel Promotions announced the first four competitors for Natural Born Killers on July 5th at the FSW Arena. BELL TIME 8PM. The first two fighters announced are the "First Family of MMA" Dave “Pain Train” Mazany and his sister Gina “Danger” Mazany.
The “Pain Train” retired from MMA with an impressive record of 17-6-1 (NC) with 8 wins by knockout and 6 by submission. Mazany was the EFC Lightweight Champion when he hung up the gloves. The Xtreme Couture product has made a name for himself with FSW and is booked regularly, but has yet to make a serious run at any Titles. He is very popular with the FSW Faithful as chants for “The Claw” begin before the bell rings. Fun Fact: I “met” Dave on a plane flight last Friday to Kansas City. It was very early and everyone was tired. I was in my seat and saw him coming down the aisle. He could tell by my reaction that I recognized him andhad his usual smile when I said hello and shook his hand. Cool guy.
His sister Gina is early in her career and has posted a record of 5-3. Her last four MMA fights have been with the UFC. She competed in FSW’s Against All Odds Rumble in December and returns to the FSW Arena with high expectations.
UFC Hall of Famer “The American Psycho” Stephan Bonnar made the transition to Professional Wrestling in 2017 and has a 15-9 Mixed-Martial Arts record. Bonnar was inducted into the UFC HOF on July 6th 2013. His fight with Forrest Griffin was the Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale at Cox Pavilion (you read that right) here in Las Vegas on April 9th 2005 and considered by many to be the best UFC fight of all-time. UFC President Dana White has said it was the most important fight in UFC history and that would be difficult to argue.
The self-funded Ultimate Fighter television show changed the game for the UFC and that fight was the ignition fuel. The 42-year-old fought at Light Heavyweight (205) during his MMA career, but he isn’t your traditional pro wrestling 205 pounder. Bonnar is as big, strong guy and was always a tough out even if he might be overmatched. He teamed up with Disco Inferno Thursday Night in Tag action against Joey Ryan and Santana Jackson Beers and Bodyslams 7 in a losing effort. Bonnar had a solid career in the UFC and shared the Octagon with Five former or current UFC Champions (Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, Tito Ortiz, Forrest Griffin, and Rashad Evans).
Phil Baroni is one of my favorite fighters from the earlier years of UFC. I was learning about the sport and rented UFC DVDs from a place called a video store. He always let his heavy hands go and was willing to scrap with anyone which made him an immediate favorite. The New York Bad Ass won his last MMA contest in May of 2018.
