King of the Cage is a mixture of several different martial arts, which pits one person’s martial arts style versus another. It is a full contact sport, which has slowly but surely made its way to the mainstream public and most importantly into our living rooms every day. After performing 400+ events of blood, sweat and tears, King of the Cage has proven to be an integral part in the evolution of Mixed Martial Arts. No other production has promoted more fights than King of the Cage. King of the Cage has been a career staple for countless stars:  Forrest Griffin, Quinton Rampage Jackson, Rashad Evans, Krazy Horse, Keith Jardine, Mac Danzig, Urijah Faber, Joe Stevenson, and Diego Sanchez. Sustainability is the key factor in any production, King of the Cage continues to operate because of a multitude of key factors with one of the most important being its allegiance to the fighters and the fans.
