Alex Shelley vs. Richard Holliday added to MLW SuperFight

Holliday recently turned against Alex Hammerstone and got together with Alicia Atout.

A new match has been added to this month's MLW television tapings.

Alex Shelley will face Richard Holliday at MLW SuperFight in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday, February 26. The tapings are being held at the Grady Cole Center.

Following the main event of last week's MLW Fusion, Holliday turned against his friend Alex Hammerstone and got together with Alicia Atout. Hammerstone retained his MLW World Heavyweight Championship against Pagano after Holliday helped him fight off interference by Azteca henchmen. Atout was going to interview Hammerstone after the match, but she instead low blowed him with the microphone. Holliday then attacked Hammerstone and posed with Hammerstone's title belt.

Last week's Fusion went off the air with Holliday and Atout making out.

"The controversial couple [Holliday and Atout] promises to continue shocking the world of MLW and vows to make SuperFight a memorable night as they tease breaking a few taboos and bones as they start a new chapter together as MLW's power couple," MLW wrote.

"Standing across the ring will be a true fighting artist in Alex Shelley. Shelley, who debuted in MLW last fall, enters the match with a standout career, collecting championships in virtually every organization he's competed in from the United States to Japan and all points in-between."
