In the main event, Team Four Corners captain Floyd Sword comes back out of retirement to face veteran Arizona submission wrestler Bryan Pardoe.
Sword, a self-taught jujitsu specialist best known for his too-close-to-call battle with Marvin Eastman, steps back into the cage for the first time in two years. Pardoe, a 5 time King of the Cage and Gladiator Challenge champion, was undefeated in 2005, and travels to Colorado hoping to continue his winning streak alive in 2006.

In a women’s main event bout, DeLuca Combat Academy’s Thricia Poovey takes on Arizona Combat Sports’ Jamie Lynn. At 6-0, Poovey is undefeated at
125 pounds, most recently winning a first round submission victory at her King of the Cage debut last year. Lynn is an experienced veteran, having faced the top names in the women’s 135 pound division. Now training at
Arizona’s top mixed martial arts school, she intends to be the first to defeat Poovey.

In a matchup of veteran versus up and comer, veteran kickboxer John ‘the Terminator’ Cronk takes on Arizona’s Ray Steinbeiss. Muay Thai expert and worldwide fight veteran John Cronk hails from Denver, Colorado, and is
making his sixth appearance in King of the Cage. In front of him is the undefeated rising star Ray Steinbeiss, fighting out of Arizona Combat Sports. Cronk’s ring experience matches up with Steinbeiss’ 8-0 undefeated record to promise an exciting main event bout.
