Between them, Robbie Lawler and Gideon Ray have fought nine times in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. On Saturday, Sept. 17, the two sluggers will each fight for the first time in King of the Cage.
KOTC’s “Xtreme Edge” is scheduled Sept. 17 at the Edge Sports Complex… it is the first KOTC event ever held in Indianapolis.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the first of 19 bouts starting at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $30 and are available at all Herb Johnson’s World Champion Karate locations. Call 317 898-4444 for tickets and 765 520-5555 for more information.
“I think we’ve put together a nice card,” said co-promoter Monte Cox “We have Robbie Lawler, who is coming off a huge knockout win over Niko Vitale in Hawaii… Gideon Ray, who is one of the better strikers in the Midwest… and many of the top guys from Indiana, like Jeremy Bolt and Antoine Skinner. And we have champions from other organizations like Clay Guida and Jason Reinhardt.”
Chas Bowling, who put together most of the matchups, said he tried to give as many fighters a chance to fight in a big show as possible. The result was a 19-bout event.
Current UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes will referee the show, while fellow Miletich Fighting Systems teammates Tim Sylvia and Jens Pulver will be on hand to sign autographs.
The show is being sponsored by Herb Johnson’s Karate, Pike Collision, Budweiser, Repro Graphics, Hooters Downtown, Marsh’s Custom Meats, Harem House, Classy Chassey and Pumphrey & Manley Attorneys at Law.
