King of the Cage 7/10




 

This past weekend I had the chance to go check out KOTC in Elsinore (25ish minutes with skilled driving) for free -buddy has a magazine and they did some pics/features - and 22 of us took up floor row 5. These tix were marked @ $75.00   

It was at Storm Stadium and the crowd wasn't big, maybe a third of seats filled, but bigger than last time i was told.  I don't remember the name of any of the fighters but they were all local, from the surrounding cities.  The fights, overall, were decent.  One fight, in which the winner was apparent went to split decision and the obvious loser of the fight got the nod.  Could't believe it, then they announced Cecil Peoples as one of the Judges.  Oh and another interesting thing, was that the In ring announcer is the recently cast off WEC announcer (don't know his name).  Anyways back to the fights.  One fight between this yoked black dude (fighter A) and an equally intimidating looking mexican guy who i remember name was Paul (fighter B) ended rather odd.  Fighter A accidental nutshot to fighter B.  B, is either hurt bad or milking to recover as he is taking the full 5 minutes.  B at the end of 5 minutes can't continue (crowed goes crazy) and the bout is initially ruled a Technical Draw. Then after a  minute or two, the outcome is changed and it's announced that since fighter B was unable to continue after the allotted 5 minutes, fighter A has won!  I thought it should have been a No Contest? or maybe even winner by dq, fighter B? i don't get how a fighter wins after his opponent is no longer to continue following an ILLEGAL blow. The rest of the fights were good and the HW bout for the Belt was very entertaining ending with the undefeated champ continuing his reign.  I got to meet and chat with him at a local bar after, he was a cool dude!

Back to the crowd, again.  I'm not sure if it was rampid throughout the entire audience or if i was just unlucky to have a pack of assclowns behind me.  It was the typical, all you can imagine, douche baggery of backyard fight fans. This is only a tad of what i can remember, and why i took many trips to the bar:

OOOOOOOOHHHHHH YEAAAAA (at literally anything), quit running away pussy, stand-up like a man, break his ribs, snap his femur (my personal favorite), fuck the ref up, and the like.

But, even with a crowd of droolers, i personally didnt see one fan far altercation, but there were also police in packs, everywhere.  Also, the ring girls, specifically 3 of the 6, blew the UFC girls out of the water.

So, overall all, it was a good time of free, decent fights.
