KING OF THE CAGE was back in action on February 26, 2009 at the San Manuel Casino in San Beranrdino, California with KOTC: IMMORTAL. The event featured three title fights including a KOTC Light Heavyweight (205 lbs.) Championship bout with Keith “KO Kid” Berry (6-3) challenging the champion, Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez (11-2).
The “KO Kid” fell victim to “Kryptonite” kicks and a punch combination in the third round that dropped him to the mat. Lopez followed up on his downed opponent until the ref was forced to call it at 4:29 of round three giving Tony Lopez his first title defense victory.
