Kingdom MMA -- the latest creation from former SuperBrawl and Icon Sport founder T. Jay Thompson -- is now set to stage its first-ever show from the Blaisdell Center Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii, later on this evening (April 18) now that the official weigh-ins are in the books.
Main event participants, Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Kala Hose, have been given the green light to compete after each hitting the 185-pound mark. "Mayhem," however, came in a half-pound heavy and needed additional time to shed the weight.
This is an interesting battle between two former Icon Sport champions and island rivals -- both fighters are eager to stake their claims on Hawaii bragging rights. The rest of the card has been packed with local-area talent looking to breakthrough and emerge as future stars.
