King of the Cage brought “Forged Steel” to the Ute Mountain Casino in Cortez, Colo. on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009. The card featured seven pro fights and five amateur fights. The main event featured Freddy Sandoval vs. Sidiah Parker. Apparently, Sandoval was sick the last week of training it really showed as his cardio gave way early in the fight. Parker showed great stand up and took the win by TKO at 4:38 into the first round.
Also fighting was hometown favorite Rylan Sandoval taking on Mike Orchouski. It was a three round war that went back and forth but Orchouski’s ground skills and takedowns proved too much as he took a unanimous decision. It was a great night of fights and former pro football player and Bully Beatdown star Michael Westbrook served as special guest.
