Sunday, March 11, 2007 at 8:01:49 AM
Lake of the Torches Resort Casino, the leading gaming and hospitality resort for northern Wisconsin, and King of the Cage, the leading name in mixed martial arts has teamed up to bring world-class, no-holds barred, cage-fighting action to the Northwoods of Wisconsin. The recently signed multi-fight deal includes two outdoor mega-shows in the summer months of 2007 and 2008 as well as a number of indoor shows to be held during the winter, ensuring continuous action all year long. The first show is tentatively scheduled to be held outdoors in Lac du Flambeau's amphitheater, known as the "Indian Bowl" in July of 2007.
"We are excited to be joining forces with such an internationally recognized brand," said Michael J. Broderick, Lake of the Torches Director of Marketing. "Wisconsin fans have long awaited for what is touted to be one of the biggest and best cage fighting promotions in the world and it has finally arrived. KOTC's pay-per-view and DVD sales rival even the other well-known organizations out there, but they have never forgotten their roots. We are honored to be Wisconsin's exclusive home for King of the Cage."
"KOTC is truly an international entity", says Terry Trebilcock, owner of KOTC, referring to their presence in Singapore, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the USA. "We take great pride in offering some of the most hardcore and intense mixed martial arts competitions in the world. Lake of the Torches Resort Casino is committed to providing the very best entertainment to the mid-west of the United States, so when the opportunity of teaming up came about, we didn't hesitate."
Broderick and Trebilcock both agreed that Wisconsin fans and fighters will experience nothing short of the best fights and the best production seen both stateside and abroad. More fight dates and information will soon be found on the casino's web site at: www.lakeofthetorches.com and King of the Cage's site at: www.kingofthecage.com.
