Cage Rage Champ Talks Cage Rage and EliteXC Demise

Mostapha Al Turk, who makes his UFC debut against Cheick Kongo at UFC 92, spoke with about the demise of ProElite and subsequently, Cage Rage.

“It’s always sad to see any organization sort of come to their knees. But hey, you know, there’s not one person or one organization that’s bigger than the sport itself. And where as one door closes, another one opens for anybody,” said the former Cage Rage British heavyweight titleholder. “I’m disappointed to see that happen for Cage Rage and EliteXC, but hey, life carries on.

“Cage Rage, they’re a great bunch of guys. A very professional organization. I’ve got nothing bad to say about the guys that ran Cage Rage and the time I’ve had at Cage Rage, nothing bad what so ever really. It’s all been positive,” added Al Turk.

“It was the main show in the U.K., so it had a massive fan base. It was huge in the U.K.”
