Report and photos by Keith Mills
It was a wild night for King Of The Cage’s first pay-per-view show of 2004. First off, the eighteen fights — yes eighteen — complicated the pay-per-view broadcast to the point that the undercard actually happened after the main events. The headline fight was Joe Stevenson successfully defending his belt against Joe Camacho, which, combined with the other belt bout, Charlie Valencia vs. Bobby Gamboa, proved KOTC is willing to have a pay-per-view show that highlights the lighter weight classes. Dan Severn and Scary Jerry ending in a lackluster draw was the only fight above 170 on the upper end of the card. Even with all of that going on, and the return of Romi Aram, the show was hands down stolen by Charles "Crazy Horse" Bennett who seemed to have the entire venue buzzing after his WWE-type antics. Bennett started out the fight by jumping onto and then sitting on the fence in his corner as if he was going to leap at his opponent from the top of the cage. After finishing his opponent in the quickest fight of the night, Bennett then jumped onto the top of the cage again, this time doing a back flip off of it into the center of the ring. Stevenson, Denny, Aram, and even Valencia couldn’t top that. Look for a complete report in an upcoming issue of Full Contact Fighter.
