LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!
Hosted by Eddie Bravo and martial arts actor Richard Norton, "King of the Cage 11"
will make history with three World Title belts on the line!
See 13 total matches including what promises to be the most dynamic heavyweight title match in KOTC history: New Champion Bobby Hoffman versus 42-year old wonder of nature and KOTC fan-favorite Tim "Obake" Catalfo. The stage is set. Will Hoffman ground and pound through the Obake? Or will the cage see the oldest king ever? Check it out and see. In the second title match, Light-Heavyweight Champion Vernon "Tiger" White looks to keep his belt as he faces challenger James Lee of the MASH Academy. It’s a classic match of the Lion’s Den versus Gracie Jiu Jitsu! In the third title match, the vacant Middle Weight Belt is up for grabs; former Champion Chris Brennan faces the highly regarded Steve Berger of Rodrigo Vaghi Jiu Jitsu.
And the title matches are just the beginning! The fourth main event may steal the show! What does "The Hawaiian Assassin" Kauai Kupihea receive as his reward for defeating three heavyweights and winning the first ever heavyweight tournament at KOTC 10? The rights to face 320-pound wrecking machine, "Big" Eric Pele! This match will rock the pillars of the Soboba Casino!
Also scheduled on the card—Combat Grappling’s Jason Lambert, Jiu Jitsu specialist Romie Aram, "King of the Cage" veteran Betiss "Super" Mansouri, fan-favorite Charlie Kohler, and Dean Lister!
