While Mance Warner did not get his wish at a second match at MLW: Fightland, an alternative was reached.
MLW announced that, instead of Warner facing Richard Holliday at the event, Warner will pick someone to face Holliday on his behalf. Warner was previously announced to face Gino Medina at the event. Fightland, taking place in Philadelphia on February 1, will serve as television tapings for future episodes of MLW Fusion.
PHILADELPHIA — MLW today announced Richard Holliday vs. Mance Warner's Mystery Man for MLW: FIGHTLAND at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia this Saturday February 1. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.
The altercation between the Dynasty and Mance Warner has Ol Mancer "hot as a hornet." So much so the "Southern Psychopath" demanded not one match but TWO this Saturday in Philadelphia.
A source close to the Bucksnort brawler confirms that Warner wanted to fight the smug elitist Richard Holliday in addition to Warner's scheduled bout with the Dynasty's newest member, Gino Medina.
MLW.com confirmed league officials met with Warner in New York yesterday to discuss the situation.
The league ruled it would not sanction a second bout... but did counter with a creative solution: MLW will allow Mance Warner to select a grappler of his choosing for a bout with Holliday in Philadelphia this Saturday night.
When asked to comment about who he would select for this match, Warner took a few swigs of lite beer and said, "Ya'll know the answer! It's gonna be Ol Mancer's mystery man!"
Warner then hopped in his '92 GMC Sierra 1500 and unsteadily exited MLW headquarters at a high speed before MLW.com could follow-up with more questioning.
Meanwhile, Holliday's lawyer/father is threatening to sue MLW for an undisclosed amount in retaliation for making this match.
Who is Mance Warner's mystery man? How will the Dynasty respond?
