Main Event Booked For KOTC In Vernon, B.C.
According to The Vernon Morning Star, King Of The Cage (KOTC) has officially confirmed that they'll be putting on a show in Vernon on November 28th. The as yet unnamed show will take place at Vernon's 3000+ capacity Wesbild Centre and will be headlined by a KOTC Canadian middleweight championship fight between Jason Volpe (5-2) versus Ryan Chiappe (4-5).
This fight is actually a rematch of a title fight between these two KOTC veterans that went down at KOTC - Excalibur on July 18th, 2009 in Edmonton, Alberta. Their previous fight ended disasterously in the first round as a disqualification victory for Volpe due to an eye poke.
The KOTC show in Vernon is the only major MMA card scheduled anywhere in British Columbia in the near future. So you can bet that B.C. MMA Fan will feature detailed coverage in the weeks leading up to the show.
