CORONA DEL MAR, Calif., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ActionView International, Inc. (OTC: AVEW) today announced that its premium mixed martial arts brand, WCFC, will hold Last Man Standing III on May 11, 2012 in Salt Lake City.

We plan on holding two Last Man Standing tournaments in all three weight classes, 155, 170 and 265 pounds, so that the respective winners can meet in a Last Man Standing Night of Champions event this summer to determine the WCFC Belt Champion for each of the series weight divisions. On May 11th, we will hold our second welterweight 8-man tournament in Salt Lake City, with several fighters already committed."
