CORONA DEL MAR, Calif., May 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ActionView International, Inc. (Pink Sheets:AVEW) Chief Executive Officer Joe Wooten today released additional details on the company's June 4th WCFC "Last Man Standing" Championship Tournament at the Rail Event Center in Salt Lake City, stating, "This is by far our most exciting event to date and has generated an overwhelming response as far reaching as Canada and Europe. With so many talented fighters in the 155 lb. weight class, we chose a tournament-style event to determine who would be the raining lightweight WCFC champion. We selected the 16 best lightweight fighters from four states, and on June 4th, we will find out which one deserves to wear the WCFC belt."

According to Mr. Wooten, the tournament will follow slightly modified MMA rules to better reflect the nature of the event. Each bout will consist of one, five minute round with the winner being paid and advancing to the next match. With a 16-man field, the winner will have fought and won a total of four rounds. Utah laws restrict a fighter to five rounds in one night, allowing for one additional round in the event of a draw. Other rule changes involve standing fighters back up if they are not actively seeking to end the fight and deducting a point if a fighter on the ground clinches in order to force the referee to stand the fight up.

The company also released the names of several fighters, including Steven Sharp, Lucas Montoya, Gordon Bell, Cody Ziemer, Brad McRae, James Birdsley, Ty Hamblin, Kerry Lattimer, Jason Gybels, Tallon Hoffman, Derek Wilkerson, Sean Powers, Michael Parker and Pat Reeves. First round matchups will be by random selection.

Both the weigh in ceremony (June 3) and the tournament (June 4) will be broadcast live, at no charge, via the company's ActionViewTV technology on www.wcfc.com . Tickets for the event can be purchased online at www.wcfc.com or by calling 1-877-849-9349.
