There is no UFC, WEC, or Strikeforce this weekend, and that gives us the perfect opportunity to highlight one of MMA’s oldest, and most storied promotions, King of the Cage. On Friday, Feb. 12, “King of the Cage: Vengeance” takes place at the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino in Mescalero, N.M.

Victor Valenzuela will take on Donald Sanchez for the KOTC interim bantamweight title, Tyler East will take on Tony Lopez in a KOTC heavyweight title bout, Joe Coca will take on Abel Cullum in a KOTC flyweight title fight, and Mike Bourke will battle Tony Bonello for the KOTC cruiserweight title.
