Fortin Challenges Bergmann for KOTC HW Title in October


A Heavyweight title fight between current King of the Cage Heavyweight champion Raphael Bergmann and challenger Ryan “The Vanilla Gorilla” Fortin has been agreed upon.  The two will do battle on October 28th in Dawson Creek, BC in a contest between Canada’s second (Fortin) and fourth (Bergmann) ranked fighters. The bout was confirmed with King of the Cage officials who stated that both fighters have verbally agreed to the contest and they were awaiting signed contracts from both parties.

Bergmann brings a record of 4-2 into the Heavyweight contest. Raphael had four straight wins to open his career, including  a five round decision victory over Adriano Bernardo to capture the title. Although Bergmann is coming off a pair of losses, both Tony Lopez and Tyler East are American and therefore were not eligible to fight for the Canadian Heavyweight title.

Ryan Fortin is riding a pair of wins, most recently denying UFC Hall of Fame Dan “The Beast” Severn his 100th career win in a come from behind victory at KOTC’s last foray into British Columbia at Dawson Creek. Prior to joining King of the Cage, Fortin enjoyed mixed success in HeatXC and MFC where he amassed a 3-3 record including a close fight with Nick Penner in which many thought Fortin was getting the upper hand before Penner was able to pull off the victory via submission in the second round.

    Why should Hague and Fortin not fight if they are 1 and 2 in Canada?

    Jarvis, I want to see the hague fortin fight as well but its dumb for hague. Even though fortin has a shot at beating him, why would hague want to risk it on a 5-3 fighter? his best bet is to fight someone who has a record similar to his or someone with a good winning streak. Hague has to much to lose and fortin has nothing to lose on that fight

    Tim would KO Fortin. Yes Ryan has a punchers chance however that is a longshot. If Penner would have fought his fight it would have been over in the first too. Fortin should beat Bergman then go up against some of the guys Tim Beat Like Jensen or Wuiff. After that try Tim out but not before. Just My .02 $
