UFC - STRIKEFORCE - WEC - OTHER MMA EVENTS

King of the Cage Mixed Martial Arts has a reputation of being the background super promoter with many of the UFC’s current fighters having come from the company. It is owned and operated by Terry Trebilcock with the exception of a short period where he sold part of the company away, but then repurchased one hundred percent ownership soon after. The enterprise began after Trebilcock watched a video from Martial Artist Royce Gracie about his success in combat sports using his technical skills. Trebilcock went from gym to gym, interviewing former wrestlers and boxers about how they would want to be promoted for a Mixed Martial Arts sport. The result was the internationally known King of the Cage which has been the starting point for many successful MMA fighters including Diego Sanchez, Dan Severn, Rashad Evans, Quinton Rampage Jackson, Shonie Carter, Don Frye, etc.

While the UFC, WEC, and Strikeforce, to a lesser extent, are predominately focused on a US market, King of the Cage has established itself internationally as a pillar in the industry for combat sports. It holds events in England, Canada, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong. They also feature vastly different weight divisions from other similar promoters. Their division are listed and defined from lightest to heaviest as Junior Flyweight below 126lbs, Flyweight between 126 and 135lbs, Bantamweight class from 136 to 145lbs, Lightweight up to 155lbs, Junior Welterweight between 155 and 160lbs, Welterweight up to 170lbs, Middleweight up to 185lbs, Light-Heavyweights max at 205lbs, Cruiser Class maintains a maximum of 230lbs, with the final weight cap being the Heavyweight Class at 265lbs. The only remaining weight class is Super Heavyweight. In the Super Heavyweight Class, all fighters are a minimum of two hundred and sixty-five pounds and have no upper bound on how heavy they can be.

This flexibility and wide array of divisions across the globe gives the King of the Cage competition a massive potential pool of fighters. New fighters are often in the King of the Cage before any other competitive stable and here, with so many divisions for weight, they can relatively easily find opponents of similar size, and shape to compete with while they continue to practice their craft. Currently, the title champions in each division, from lightest to heaviest are: Mamoru Yamaguchi as a Junior Flyweight, Abel Cullum, Donald Sanchez, Dominic O’Grady, Bobby Green, Quinn Mulhern, Brandon Hunt, Mike Kyle, Tony Bonello, Anthony Johnson, and Neil Cooke as a Super Heavyweight.
