CagePotato.com has been able to confirm with a source close to the show the participation of several former UFC and PRIDE veterans in an August 14 hybrid boxing and MMA card in San Diego, California.

War on the Mainland's self-titled event will take place at the San Diego Sports Arena and will feature Murilo Bustamante, Thales Leites, Alan Goes,  Pedro Rizzo, Jens Pulver and Jason Lambert among others. Rizzo was originally scheduled to take on former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia for the WOTM heavyweight title, but is currently waiting on another opponent as Sylvia injured his foot in his May 21 Moosin bout with Mariusz "The World's Strongest Man" Pudzianowski.

According to the poster for the event, there will be two more "MMA title fights" on the card, but the weight classes and bout participants have yet to be announced.

For Rizzo, this will be his second bout in just over one month's time as he is also scheduled to take on Ken Shamrock at Impact FC's July 18 event in Brisbane, Australia.

Busta vs Leites would be cool. Even past his prime I think Busta would hurt Leites.

Where the hell has Bustamante been? He hasn't fought in a coon's age (does that sound racist?)Anyway, good to have him back, and deep in my heart I hope Jens knocks someone's teeth out.

Leites vs someone for a Middleweight Title would be good.
