Bill Goldberg on the Cover of Gladiator!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TURBULENCE 2The current issue of Gladiator Magazine features one of the true superstars of sports entertainment, Bill Goldberg, who supported mixed martial arts during his years as a professional NFL football player and then as the most popular and famous professional wrestler of his generation. While people might only associate Goldberg with his in-ring persona, he was in fact one of the first pro athletes to make the jump from playing field to ring, where he then became an ealy supporter of cagefighting by opening one of the first MMA gyms in the U.S. in Atlanta, Georgia. In the late '90s, when the sport had been banned off pay-per-view and was struggling to survive, Goldberg gave the athletes of the day a place to train and gave hope to the entire MMA world that mainstream acceptance was coming. Never one to follow the crowd or be pressured to act against his inner sense of right and wrong, Goldberg continued to support and encourage crossover athletes such as Brock Lesnar, whom Goldberg fought in his final pro-wrestling appearance and then commentated on when Lesnar had his first MMA fight in EliteXC. In every facet of his life, Goldberg has brought the warrior spirit to whatever he does, whether it was growing up as a multi-sport athlete in Oklahoma, playing college and pro football, or appearing on Celebrity Apprentice or hosting such TV shows as Bullrun and Garage Mahal.

For MMA fans, this action-packed issue also includes event coverage of King of the Cage, Strikeforce, Ultimate Fighting Championship, and Gladiator Challenge and features such fighters as as "Shogun" Rua, Lyoto Machida, Chad Herrick, Mike Kyle, Alistair Overeem, Quinn Mulhern, Joe Doerkson, Jaime Jara and more!

Main Fight Card Set For
King of the Cage “Turbulence II”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TURBULENCE 2Lac du Flambeau, Wis. – Chicago’s Terry Martin, though only 29, has seen all sides of the octagon during his mixed martial arts career. He has fought at the highest levels, competing in the UFC, WEC, Strikeforce, Affliction and Adrenaline. And, he comes back home – so to speak – on April 24 when he fights Ted Worthington in King of the Cage’s “Turbulence II” at Lake of the Torches Resort Casino. Fights start at 8 p.m. in the convention center. Tickets are $75, $45 and $35. You must be 18 to attend the event.

At 18-8, Martin is trying to find his way by finding his weight. Always an undersized middleweight, Martin is now on his way down to welterweight. For this main event fight a catch weight of 175 pounds will be used. After winning 16 of his first 18, Martin is trying to stop a three-fight losing streak and reinvent himself in the 170-pound weight class.

“What fans are going to see in Terry is a fighter who is at a different level,” promoter Monte Cox said. “This move down to 170 pounds will put him on par, size-wise, with other fighters. He’s always fought bigger guys and it’s always been a big disadvantage to overcome.”

Worthington, though four years younger, has 45 professional bouts to his credit. Known as a gritty, never quit fighter, Worthington has had 11 fights go the distance.

“That’s the thing about Ted, he just never gives up,” Cox said. “That’s what I like about this matchup. Ted has the ability to fight any way you want to fight – on the ground, on your feet. He’s just so tough and a great challenge for Martin.”

A stellar four-man lightweight tournament also fills the main bill with fighters from Wisconsin, Nebraska, Illinois and Minnesota competing.

In the first matchup of the event, former KOTC champion Clay French (15-6) of Illinois takes on Sean Wilson (22-12) of Nebraska. French, a submission specialist, rarely has his fights go the distance and is 9-4 in his last 13 fights. Wilson, also a submission expert, has had only one of his 34 pro fights go the distance – his very first one nearly 10 years ago. He is coming off a win last month in Ring of Fire.

The second matchup features Minnesota’s Travis Perzynski (11-4) versus Wisconsin’s top-rated lightweight James Warfield (13-6). Perzynski, just 21 years old, has two fights against current or past UFC vets. He went the distance fighting up a weight class against “The Ultimate Fighter” finalist Tom Speer. Warfield has ruled the roost in the state for the past few years using a strong stand up style to finish most of his opponents.

In the final pro event, heavyweights Brian Ewers (2-2) of Iowa takes on Wisconsin’s Adam Kope (0-1) from Team Sixel. Also scheduled to appear on the card for “Turbulence II” are top local amateurs Shane Cadotte, Ryan White, Monty Cortwright, Aaron Wolfe, Tim Riebe, Josh Sterry and Tyler Hellenbrand
