Lake of the Torches Resort Casino will again play host to mixed martial arts global powerhouse King of the Cage on Saturday, April 4, 2009. Tickets are $35, $45 and $75.
Over 25 professional and amateur cage fighters will roll into the beautiful serenity of La Du Flambeau bringing an arsenal of kicks, punches, knees, submissions and knock outs. There will be no less than 12 hard hitting, No Holds Barred, Mixed Martial Arts Cage Fights in one night.
Fighting in one of four main events is Champion Myles “The Fury” Jury out of Detroit, Michigan. He will be putting his Welterweight King of the Cage Championship belt on the line against heavy handed Karl Kelly.
In another much anticipated main event long in the making, Wisconsinites Ernie Paulson promises to take it to BJJ Black Belt and head instructor of Milwaukee’s Neutral Ground BJJ, Jon “White Trash” Friedland. Both fighters come to the cage with a history of serving up knock outs and killer submissions. This looks to be a strategic war of talent and experience between two of the top MMA pros in Wisconsin.
In other main events look for KOTC Heavyweight “Cage Quest” Champion and current Racine Fight Night’s Light Heavyweight Champion “Smiling” Sam Alvey of Metz’s Combat Club, Kyle Kennedy and Derek Griffin bringing nothing short of fist of fury into the cage steel as they plan to go big for the Wisconsin fight fans.
