Although billed as a smaller Gladiator Challenge the show on February 24th had some memorable moments. These smaller shows feed into the larger Gladiator Challenges which in turn feed into King Of the Cage, Gladiator Challenge’s sister promotion. One of the surprising aspects about this card was the presence of two 808 Fight Factory fighters for what amounted to a local show considering 808 Fight Factory are based in Hawaii. The other was the crowd’s reaction, especially to the ‘grudge matches’ where tribal and local grievances were settled in the cage. There were no belts on the line.

Both Gladiator Challenge and King Of the Cage are known for their preference of standup action and relatively high percentage of knockouts. That is why it was so surprising to see the four main events end in two armbars, a front choke, and a decision. The biggest surprise of the night literally was from the tribal grudge match between Stan Dressler vs. Warren Rubio fight. Dressler weighed in at a whopping 320 lbs. and looked to stand about 7′ tall while Rubio weighed in at 195 lbs. and seemed about 5’9". Some of he fans couldn’t believe it when Rubio actually seemed to be getting the better of the giant standing but Dressler ended the fight with a rear naked choke instead of ground and pound.

Look for a full report in the next issue of Full Contact Fighter.
