Mixed Martial Arts: King of the Cage reigns Saturday night

-A A +A
By Rob Lamb

Mixed martial arts fighting has rapidly been gaining popularity for many years, and while television gives interested viewers many opportunities to take in action, it doesn’t compare to seeing it live.
Those who have no problem shelling out $50 to their satellite providers to catch the monthly Ultimate Fighting Championship bouts should know it pales to the experience right there, in the arena.
Saturday night, Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino hosted the King of the Cage fights.
This was a great opportunity for MMA enthusiasts to see both local and regional fighters.
The atmosphere was absolutely electric. Colorful characters enter the ring being introduced with their self-hung monikers, such as Man o’ War, Wild Bill, Babyface to do battle.
Instantly you feel the sparks as the corner man barks some last minute strategy and the referee bellows, “Fighter are you ready?” The price of admission seems like a bargain compared to the pay-per-view version.
Saturday’s card included 13 exciting, fast-paced bouts lasting close to four hours.
The live experience put a whole new perspective on how intense this whole fighting experience must be. The beauty of MMA is the fighter has to be prepared to defend against a multitude disciplines.
