Since 1998, King of the Cage has been serving up hard hitting Mixed Martial Arts action around the country, featuring both up and coming fighters and experienced combat veterans. In its first foray into the Pacific Northwest, KOTC brought NW fight fans 8 pro MMA bouts for "Thunderstruck" at the Everett Events Center on August 15th. 


Arsenal's Nic Kuning took the name to heart by catching Victory Athletics's Butch McGavran with a thunderous head kick at just 8 seconds in to start off the nights bouts. Jared Torgeson, Daniel Stewart, and Tyson Nam all followed suit by ending their opponents nights with knockout punches. In the fifth fight of the night, 

Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson out of Matt Hume's AMC made his pro debut a successful one by handling everything Frankie Mendez threw at him and then calmly getting his shots in, first on the feet and then on the ground before setting up the Rear Naked Choke. Team Quest's Tyson Jeffries continues to impress by securing an arm triangle 1 minute into his fight. In the co-main event, Caros Fodor also ended his pro debut in spectacular fashion by catching Nick Meginness in a guillotine choke. The main event saw former UFC Fighter, Tim "The Barbarian" Boetsch training with Matt Hume at AMC, taking on former IFL fighter, Aaron Stark who is with Team Quest. This fight was a good one with Boetsch finally submitting Stark in the 2nd via guillotine.
