After 12 years in management, with one of the world’s largest custom motorcycle manufacturers, Low has been with King of the Cage for the last six (6) years and brought with him the leadership Terry Trebilcock was looking for to assist him in running King of the Cage, which has grown to one of the largest MMA organizations in the world. As the Live Event Manager for KOTC, Low is primarily responsible for managing all live events, as well as matchmaking shows.

“It was an honor to have been asked to work for King of the Cage” said Mike Low, on the eve of his 6 year anniversary with King of the Cage. “I met Terry many years ago playing ice hockey, and was invited to one of his shows. As soon as the first fight was done, I was hooked, and fell in love with the sport. When Terry asked me to come on board and supervise the cage crew, I could not pass it up. When I first started as the blood cleaner, I never thought I would end up with the promotion into ownership. I firmly believe that we have the best crew out there, and I look forward to doing my part in continuing the growth of King of the Cage.”

Terry Trebilcock, owner and CEO of King of the Cage, states, “after being involved in over 250 live KOTC events, Mike has become a major part of the growth of KOTC for the past several years. In turn he will now be receiving a profit sharing on the company.”

“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE” KING OF THE CAGE ANNOUNCES GLOBAL EXPANSION

Rancho Cucamonga, CA (March 15, 2013) The Philippines has recently become a hot bed for talent in the combative sports world. The success of Manny Pacquiao and several up and coming Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters has put the Philippines near the top of the map for the future of combative athletes.

Today, King of the Cage (KOTC) announces a multi-year deal with a private equity group headed by international businessmen, Ray Young and finance expert Michael Brown. The group will be setting up an operating company in the Philippines for the purpose of promoting and developing multiple Live Events and bringing weekly broadcast television shows throughout the Philippines. The initial plan is to hold two (2) MMA events in 2013, launch the opening of a MMA gym to help develop local prospects and establish a TV broadcast partner for its global content in 2014 calendar.

Terry Trebilcock, owner and CEO of King of the Cage, states, "We have had plans to enter the Philippines now for several years. We have always known what an elite level market this could become and we needed the proper partners which we found in Ray Young and Michael Brown.

With a weekly KOTC broadcast deal in place with Sports Box in Mongolia, Mr. Young and his local private equity partners are now planning on bringing the first Live KOTC Event in the 4th quarter of 2013.

Tank Abbot Returns to MMA in King of the Cage

Huntington Beach, Ca – Mark April 13 on your calendar and make sure you tune into MavTV for the LIVE return to the cage of David “TANK” Abbott, the world’s most famous cage fighter, in a world championship match against Reuben “Warpath” Villereal at Gold Country Casino in Northern California for the King of the Cage Superfight title!

“Tank Abbott basically built the sport of MMA and brought it into the mainstream when he started fighting in the mid-90s,” says King of the Cage owner Terry Trebilcock Jr. “There is no true MMA fan in the world who doesn’t know who Tank Abbott is and we’re thrilled that he has picked King of the Cage to resume his fighting career when he could have fought in any event in the world.”

Tank Abbott’s career spans the history of MMA and he recently took a few years off to write a 300,000 word trilogy about the origins of cage fighting entitled “Befor There Were Rules" with the first novel, "Bar Brawler", now available for purchase as a paperback or digital download from Amazon.com. With the books finished, Tank, just in his mid-forties, decided to get back to his roots as he prepares “Street Warrior” and “Cage Fighter”, the final two novels in the trilogy, for release later this year.

“King of the Cage represents the passion and excitement of what MMA is really about,” says Tank. “It’s great to be fighting on MavTV and to re-connect with the true fans of the sport. It’s why I spent six years writing my three books and why I’m getting back into the cage now. Life is about defying the odds and overcoming all obstacles to follow your passion and pursue your dreams and that is what my books are about. Plus it’s always nice to beat someone up with having to worry about going to jail. A true warrior never puts down his sword – or his drink.”

Tank Abbott’s return to the cage is an important milestone for King of the Cage, which recently signed a multi-year deal that includes a new event broadcasted each week with MavTV. All events, also being broadcasts in Spanish on Mundo Azteca TV as well.

King of the Cage action, featured weekly on both MAVTV and Azteca America, returns to the River Spirit Casino on Saturday Dec 8, 2012. This event entitled "Unification" is slated for eight mixed martial arts bouts in the state-of-the-art KOTC circular cage.

The main event of the evening is a highly anticipated unification title match between current KOTC Middleweight Champion Sean Strickland 9-0-0 (Corona, Ca) and KOTC Interim Middleweight Champion Josh Bryant 14-1-0 (Tulsa, Ok). Two champions enter but only one will leave with the title.

The co-main event showcases another one of Oklahoma's top fighters David Heath 17-7-0 (Tulsa, Ok). Heath, a veteran of some of the world's top organizations will face heavy-handed striker Chad Herrick 12-7-0 (East Tawas, MI). In a featured bout, heavyweights Cody East 3-1-0 (Las Lunas, NM) and Andenilson Clementino 3-2-0 (Brazil) battle it out for the second time. East, a former 2x state champion wrestler, came out the victor in the first fight over 6'7" former professional basketball player Clementino, but it's been over a year since their last meeting. Both fighters are undefeated at River Spirit Casino and need a win here to secure a shot at title contention.

This will be Church's third appearance on KOTC at River Spirit and his performances have been nothing less than electrifying. A big fan favorite Zac Church delivers every time, and this time he faces an opponent that holds a win over one of his teammates which may make it a little more personal.
