Lac du Flambeau, WI (PRWEB) June 24, 2008
Lake of the Torches Resort Casino will play host to mixed martial arts global powerhouse King of the Cage on Saturday, July 19th, in the Lac du Flambeau Amphitheater - also known as the "Indian Bowl." Tickets are $45, $65 and $100. For the first time in Wisconsin's history, the show will be taped for a national Pay-Per View audience.
Local Wisconsin superstar Mike "Six Gun" Sixel returns to defend his zero loss record in his hometown of Wisconsin. Mike has had a few months off to gather himself and make some changes to make sure he is ready for the toughest fight of his career on July 19, 2008. He has left World Famous Team Quest to surround himself with a smaller more personal team that is equally as qualified. He is training out of soon to be World Famous Sports Lab, which was put together by Nate "the rock" Quarry and Greg Thompson.
Going into his fight in July, "Six Gun" said: "I feel like this is going to be one of the most exciting and entertaining fights at the Lake of the Torches yet. I believe this because of two reasons. One is that I am fired up more than ever after coming off of a loss that I was dominating up to the last few seconds. The second is because this will be my greatest challenge yet."
Terry Trebilecock, President of KOTC commented: "It's not going to be an easy road for Mike due to his opponent. He is going to be facing a guy that held the record for most wrestling wins in High School in the state of Michigan and also was ranked 19th in the nation in Division 1 Collegiate wrestling out of Michigan. He also has a 6-0 MMA record. You don't want to miss this one, because all that can be said is there's going to be fireworks!!!"
In the main event of the night, the KOTC Heavyweight Title will be up for grabs as Josh "Barnyard" Barnes puts his heavyweight belt on the line versus California sensation Tony "Kryptonite" Lopez. Insiders are afraid to guess which way this fight will go…both fighters love to stand in the middle of the cage and bang.
Representing our men and women in uniform and making her debut in the cage will be Sgt. Stefi Schneider, a recruiter in the Wisconsin National Guard. At 155 pounds, Sgt. Schneider had been a long practitioner of Pankration with Team USA. She currently trains with Sixel's Fight Club out of Eagle River, Wisconsin. Also fighting in the cage from the Fight Club camp will be popular locals Justin Krumplisch, Jamie Johnson, Shane Cadotte, Ryan White and Sam Alvey. Alvey will be making his professional heavyweight debut after winning the "KOTC: Wisconsin Cage Quest" held this past March.
Michael Broderick, Director of Marketing for Lake of the Torches remarked, "Once again we are excited to hold this event in our beautiful lakeside amphitheater for what will no doubt be a phenomenal night of Mixed Martial Arts knock-outs and submissions."
