Former UFC and WEC light heavyweight “Fury” Carmelo Marrero (9-3) and “Juggernaut” Antwain Britt (9-2) will fight in the first round of Vendetta Fighting Championships one-night eight-man light heavyweight tournament at A Night of Vengeance in Aruba Saturday 5 September, Fighters.com has confirmed.

Marrero will seek vengeance for Britt’s eight-second KO of Marerro’s American Top Team stablemate “Samuray” Antonio Mendes (2-4) in the Shine Fights premier in Columbus last May.

Marrero comes to the tournament from a UD loss to “Darth” Ryan Bader (7-0) at UFC Fight Night 18 in Nashville last April, Marrero’s second, though brief stint in the Octagon.

The winner between Marerro and Britt will fight the winner between Brazilian Top Team’s Angelo Araujo (8-2) and Team Quest’s Aaron Stark (8-4).

Araujo TKO’d “Furacao” Cristiano Machado (0-1) at RFC 2 in Rio De Janeiro 20 June while Stark was tapped in a guillotine by “Barbarian” Tim Boetsch (9-3) at KOTC in Everett 15 August.

At the other end of the bracket, Aruban Evan Nedd (0-0) and Richard Hale (7-2-1) will fight in round one. Hale TKO’d Adam Padilla (3-2) at RITC 130 in Arizona 18 July.

The remaining islander, Gregory Milliard (1-1), and “Sho Nuff The Master” Rodney Wallace (6-0) will also fight in round one, the winner meeting the winner of Nedd versus Hale in round two.

Wallace won a two-round UD over Marcus Vanttinen (9-2) at M-1 Challenge 16 in Kansas City 5 June while Milliard was tapped in an armbar by Tom Murphy (3-0) at TKO 34 in Montréal 7 June.

The tourney features enough 205-pound talent that the winner is sure to draw some eyeballs from national and international promotions. Monday, Wallace and Nedd told Fighters.com about their preparations for the grueling Night of Vengeance.

The main event features fought-everywhere, pimped-everything “Mr. International” Shonie Carter (45-18-7) versus Minnesota Martial Arts Academy’s “Eraser” Derrick Noble (24-12-1).

Former UFC heavyweight champion and King of Pancrase and veteran MMA broadcaster “El Guapo” Bas Rutten (28-4-1) will call the action, humorously no doubt, from ringside with Kenny Rice. FOX Sports Radio personality Tomm Looney will announce in the ring.

Tickets for A Night of Vengeance can be purchased at Etix; and, if you live in the southern United States, mark 1 October on your calendar to watch the replay on FOX Sports South.
