KOTC: Madness Weigh-In Results


KOTC MadnessMMA is back in Winnipeg as King of the Cage makes its Manitoba debut.  Headlining the card is Winnipeg favorite Joe Doerksen taking on Tony Lopez.

In the semi-main event, Jarod Milko came in five pounds heavy.  “The Milkman” will take on Vyron Phillips in an exciting matchup of Winnipeg Welterweights.

If you are in Winnipeg, you can catch these two bouts and many more by picking up a pair of tickets by calling 204-961-0349 or from Ticketmaster.

    a migraine? ye it’s called cutting weight there has to be a better explanation. How can this guy ask for fights and be so unprofessional and pull such a total bitch move. Ok so he’s scared! you don’t think Robin is scared ? he openly admits it, that comes with fighting. Don’t sign a contract if you know deep down you don’t want the fight or please post on here and explain your totally psycho move bodwell.

    how do you expect to get another fight ?

    Robin Black talks openly about the fear.


    A lot of people are so choked for Black that he never got to fight. Check out twitter and FB.
    But congrats to him on a great career and we look forward to seeing his breakdowns for years to come.

  15. Robin Black says:

    Were you crying before or after you decided to skip the second flight the promoter booked for you?

    You skipped the flight he booked for you Tuesday to get you to Winnipeg with plenty of time to get blood done. Then they fronted you a couple hundred cash so you could get the next plane. Then you skipped that plane.

    I had a lot of curveballs in the last 3 weeks including a separated shoulder 9 days out. Couldn’t move my right arm but never thought about canceling on you man.

    No one ever, EVER book this guy again.

    You call me your easiest fight yet? You can’t even get on a plane to come face me you coward?

    Everyone knows Adam Bodwell is a clown who has no business fighting in Pro MMA. Adam is no pussy tho. He has fought some really tough guys that are alot tougher than Robin Black, like Shane Rice and Corey Lauticher and Mike Davis, all of which would kill Robin Black. He was never scared of them, everyone knows Black would have subbed Bodwell in the first.

    I am no fan of Bodwell by any means. But I really think Bodwell is so stupid that he really thought he meds were fucked and he couldnt compete so he didnt show.

    Robin I feel bad for you but really man, what did you expect? Its Adam Bodwell. You knew the guy was a clown well in advance. You also knew that this would be an easy win to end your career which is why you took the fight. Lets be real here guys.

  20. Robin Black says:

    I expected him to be professional and show up and fight hard and give me a scary 3 minutes. If I got past those 3 minutes I was confident I would win.

    I didn’t expect him to flake out and miss 2 planes on purpose.

    Oh well its done now. It is what it is. You win some, you lose some, you don’t get to do some.

    Its all genuine experience I can draw on, the good, the bad, and the sad.

    All the best to Adam and his family. No hard feelings man sorry to lash out.

    Thanks to everyone that supported me. Take care. See you guys out there.

  21. Robin Black says:

    And for the record I fought Lautischer and he subbed me in a minute. I turned down Shane Rice cuz he’s a black belt who’s been fighting for 12 years and I’m not crazy, and I’m looking forward to facing Davis in a grappling contest in Alberta this year.

    I was not a great fighter by any stretch of the imagination but I learned a ton from it and it made me happy and a better man. These experiences will help me in my career as a TV analyst and I cherish them.

    Thanks again to my friends and the people who helped me and were kind to me.

    Cheers. See you guys out there.

    Sounds like a lot of bs to go through to fight for a couple hundred dollars. I would have said fuck it too.its not bod wells fault his blood work came back with positive hep b.when you get vaccination for it that’s what happens. Like Tim said give the kid a break.promoters and fans think a fighter should travel all over to fix promoters or medical mistakes that’s bs.

    Damn that sucks for Robin. All the hard work in training camp without the reward of putting the work to use and being able to test himself.

    I hope another promoter can work something out for an upcoming card and get Black his final fight. If Robin is in shape, extend this current training camp an extra month or so.

    Bodwell had no intention of ever fighting. Whatever excuse is said is obviously complete bs. Prescription drugs and alcohol can be a real confidence booster in the moment, but there is no amount that will make bodwells delusions an actual reality

  31. Robin Black says:

    MAD and I are brilliant. We psychically knew your buddy gets paid by the job so you’d miss your Tuesday flight.

    It worked out according to plan. I got to cut weight and not fight. I got to feel this awesome empty feeling. I got to do the hard part but not the fun part.

    Look man like I said, sorry for lashing out.

    The chances of me ever getting my life structured in such a way that I could train and make weight and fight are pretty slim to none. You probably took that gift away from me son. Your un-professionalism may have taken that away from you too man.

    But I’ll look into this November thing on Monday after I get over this shitty feeling.

    If not, good luck to you and your family.

  32. Joshua Willms says:

    Dear Robin,

    You have been an inspiration for me and you have taught me so much about MMA. Because of you I have a punching bag and a mat room set up in my apartment, and I teach everyone who has time about how awesome MMA is. Although I have a full time job as a medical student, I still train every day as much as I can with the goal of participating in an amateur fight one day.

    You make the technical parts of fights stand out like no one else! You reveal the magic in what some see as ‘boring’. Your breakdowns of Mighty Mouse, Carlos Condit, Uriah Faber, and all of the others are the best sources of information on the technical and mental aspects of fighting that I have ever seen.

    You deserve one last fight. I have had your fight down on my calendar for three weeks because I was more excited for it than for even the UFC cards.

    Only you know whether or not you can make the sacrifices necessary to train, cut weight, and get in the cage at this point, but you have one fan over here who wants to see you go 5 and 5!!!

    Bodwell that’s a bullshit excuse but just to clarify your bullshit, my last fight I drove 3 hours to the USA 24 hours out and got the proper hep b blood work as required in Fort mac. Cost me 100 bucks but whipty Fuckin do ya bitch. Robin black is feeling the pain right now of this but it’s you who has to live with the fact that you quit like a bitch for the rest of your life, the pain from losing goes away but what you did will haunt you as a man forever ya bitch!!!!!

    I know Robin wants and deserves one last fight, he’s a phenomenal asset to have in Canadian MMA, we don’t really have anyone else to fill his spot once he’s gone.

    The Second fight 4 pride card is in November, here in Quebec. If Robin is willing to stay in shape until then,I’m willing to give up my show purse to fly him out. If he beats me, he can have my win $ as well.

    I’ll fight him. Give him a war, and send him home with some beers.

  41. Robin Black says:

    Thanks Josh. A lot of people have offered to help get me that last fight. Promoters called, fighters called. I’m really humbled by how cool people have been.

    But I’m at peace with it all.

    Said by my friend last night:

    “This is my friend Robin Black. He was an MMA fighter. He’s retired now. He doesn’t have to fight any more, he has a TV show and he just talks about fighting on camera and stuff. He gets paid a lot more and no one kicks him in the face.”

    I really like the sound of that. I’m good with it. I think I can be proud of that.

    Thanks for all the kindness my friends. When I started in this business 7 years ago everyone hated me. It was painful every day to be called names and mocked openly all day every day. It is really really nice to feel like people appreciate my small contributions now. I feel very welcome and appreciated in this game today, and that means the world to me.

    Thank you guys so much.

    I see lots of excused from Bodwell, but no apologies to the fans or anyone else. It says a lot about his character. I’m in agreement that promoters should think twice before booking Bodwell to a show again.

    To all the fighters who did show up, I applaud you. It was a great night of fights and I hope to see you all in the cage again in Winnipeg.

  45. @Hawkes…I agree with that statement on the ring announcing. Robin brought a lot of energy to the event.

    @Andrija Pavlic… how many times have you swept the guy off the top of you with a kimura sweep? I swear I see that move of yours every fight that you are in. Any post fight pics of that toe of yours? Great job.
