MIAMI – Major League Wrestling today announced Dragón Lee’s opponent for his first night in an MLW ring. For the first time ever Dragón Lee vs. Rich Swann will take place and you can see it live in just 13 days. The bout is a featured match on Thursday night December 13th MLW: Never Say Never card at the Miami Scottish Rite Temple.

Both December 13 & 14th cards are FUSION TV tapings for beIN SPORTS. Tickets are available starting at $15 at MLWTickets.com.

Dragón Lee, the reigning CMLL World Lightweight Champion is considered by fans, the Mexican press and luchadores as one of if not the best high–flying luchador in the sport.

Dizzying opponents with moves like the Dragon Driver, Operación Dragón and La Lanza, this técnico is the latest top ranked wrestler to enter MLW as part of the league’s 2019 roster reload, an initiative to give fans fresh and exciting big matches.

One of Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre’s most popular luchadores, Dragón Lee fits MLW’s hybrid wrestling vision, being able to blend his fighting base of lucha with strong style, having competed extensively in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

Making a global splash for his celebrated rivalry with Kamaitachi, Dragón Lee would go on to win the masks of Kamaitachi and La Máscara before packed houses in Mexico City’s cathedral of lucha libre, Arena Mexico.

Swann, a versatile wrestler who can blend different styles from technical to high flying and even some lucha present a unique challenge for Lee in his debut. Like his adversary, Swann has competed for organizations big and small from Japan to Mexico and has considerable speed and dynamic aerial attacks.

Will the charismatic Rich Swann silence the rise of Dragón Lee in MLW? Or will Lee make a memorable debut in “magic city”? Find out live in Miami Thursday night December 13th.
