In the following years, Trebilcock would dodge bullets but steadily cultivate the promotion into what is now known as one of the largest MMA institutions in the world.

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.
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 everyday.

King of the Cage is the founding father of not only a Sport, but a Lifestyle!
