Kimo ….”Yes, it’s true!”
Cage Rage Championships is now officially confirming the rumours about Kimo fighting at Cage Rage. Having finally signed the contracts, UFC, Pride and K-1 legend Kimo Leopoldo is on his way to Wembley Arena to make his British debut at the fast selling Cage Rage 18: Battleground.
Kimo is best known as the first man that put the Gracie’s to the test. His epic battle with mixed martial arts legend Royce Gracie in 1994 at UFC 3 is arguably one of the best bouts ever in UFC history.
Kimo has since catapulted into the limelight with a growing fan base over the world. His trademark entrance into the octagon carrying a huge cross on his back is now notorious. Since his MMA debut nearly twelve (12) years ago, Kimo has travelled the world, fighting some of the best MMA fighters in the planet at the most prestigious stages, and he has accumulated a steady track record with many wins and only a few losses to his name. On behalf of Cage Rage Championships, it really is a honour to welcome the legendary Kimo into our midst at Cage Rage 18.
The only remaining problem we have now is… who will Kimo fight???
We searched high and low for a strong man with an iron will to beat a veteran like Kimo, and after much deliberation we are proud to announce that Kimo will be facing our very own Dave “The Enforcer” Legeno for a heavyweight showdown. Both men like to strike and neither man is afraid of the other, but more importantly, both like to throw ‘bombs’ looking for that ultimate KO!
Kimo v Legeno will be a fight for the history books.
