    Ridiculous as Sam Flood is a guy who does not train at all. Just a loud mouth bartender.

    King of the cage is pathetic, there a discrace to this sport. I feel sorry for Mahood being associated with them. They need to stop with the pathetic attempts to promote a decent event.

    I operate a website called The above comment does not reflect our site’s opinion of Mr. Flood. He fought bravely against Dan Sevren in Penticton last night. This should clear up any confusion.

    I fought on this card and had a great time! Dan, Shannon and Bill are not only incredible warriors they are also great guys and excellent representation for this sport. Ken took good care of us fighters and in my opinion any and all events thrown in B.C. only help to give the sport the regonition it deserves.

    Buck, Commission’s do it all the time it has nothing to do with the promoter. Just look at some of the opponents Severn has fought over the last few years! We also have to remember that Dan is 51 years old! You can’t really put him out there against Lesnar or Carwin and expect them not to break his hip!

    A lot of promoter’s want to put Severn on their cards and to keep Dan active by only fighting guys with a record close to his we’d have to watch him fight Travis Fulton 6 times a year!

    Here’s some of the guys he’s faced over the last 5 years! A lot of these guys take the fight on the off chance that they can get a win over a UFC Hall of Famer! Always looks good on the resume!

    Sam Flood 1-0
    Buddie Dixon 2-1
    Woody Young 1-0
    Steve Eakins 0-0
    Ian Asham 1-0
    Victor Vincelette 1-2
    Terrell Pree 0-0
    Jason Keith 2-0
    Kasey Geyer 0-0
    Clifford Coon 0-0
    Lanny Griffin 0-0
    Victor Vincelette 1-1

    Huge congrats to Chris Day who fought amateur. This kid is only 19 years old and already 6-0 in amateur mma and a bjj blue belt. Definitely a prospect to look out for.

    Was at King of the Cage last night.It was very entertaining as 7 of 8 fights were KO or submission wins. The show started about 20 minutes late, which is unprofessional. The ring girls were totally clueless as to what was required of them. They were pretty but disorganised with no instructions as to what to do. Good entertainment overall but not a polished, well run event. I would like to see bigger names on the card. I went to see Dan Severn and Bill Mahood. They both needed better competition.

    Dan severan is just a ticket seller, and Shannon rich has like 150 fights so not a bad fight for mahood. Still fight of the night was the riotmaker baker as soon as he gets better on the ground. Their is nobody middleweight or light heavy that can stand and bang with with him. He lost to clay davidson because of ground game and he killed clay I have never seen so much blood. The amatuer fight with the kamloops kids was a battle too I think the card was good they just needed to serve more beer the cut off was weak

    I thought the card was great. Mat bakers fight was no doubt fight of the night and the guy he fought was a pro boxer? it didn’t really look like he new how to throw a punch with Mats crazy pressure. I have seen mat both times in penticton and the rematch with davidson in Vernon he knocks everybody to the ground with his first combo, but he is no match for toshidos ground game! It’s awesome having local people like Mat, clay davidson, Bryan codwell doing so good around their home towns! bakers crowd uproar was way louder then BC favorite the butcher mahood and even UFC champ fan Severn everone loves local talent. I can’t wait for the next fight card on Vernon

    Gary Wright most likely be Top 10 if he was more actvive! He’d need to fight a lot more often to crack that list!

    KOTC shows i think have become kinda weak becuase ken throws a card every month which he is probbabbly just loosing money on as for talent Chiappe is a great champ but like wright he disapeared after he won the belt, baker is definatly a westren canada favorite, and clay davidson is great talent as well, rory came form king of the cage, so has kajan jhonson, travis galibrith. I think the fights are getting some what lame becuase everyone who thinks he trains wants to fight now, and when the season guys face them in the cage they just destroy them. Long gone are the days where black belts where on their first fights and great atheletes for a first pro fight, now its chumps that think they can roll becuase they play the UFC game on xbox

    Dan Severn and Shannon Ritch are not even a draw why do they keep getting them on shows. Spend that time and effort building up young talent or local stars that can bring people into there shows.
