Gunning for a title is the only thing on Waachiim Spiritwolf’s mind right now, and on Thursday night at King of the Cage he’ll get that chance. He’ll face Rick Legere in a rematch of a fight the two had in late 2008, except this time it will be with the junior welterweight championship on the line.

When Spiritwolf last faced Legere, the result was a devastating knockout just 16 seconds into round two, as Spiritwolf picked up the win. Following that fight, he made another great showing as he blasted highly touted up and comer Brett Cooper in the first round of their bout in June.

Now the proud Native American looks to keep his streak alive with a second win over Legere.

“He wants revenge,” Spiritwolf told MMAWeekly.com. “I want the belt.”

With Spiritwolf competing at 160 pounds in this fight, the California native anticipates staying busy in several weight classes in the future.

“I can fight for the 170-pound title or maybe the 155 (belt) after I win,” Spiritwolf commented.

The show on Thursday will also feature King of the Cage welterweight champion Mike “The Joker” Guymon putting his title on the line as well.
