Is the Heroes Gate event supposed to be in Europe? Also I thought Cormier had the King of the Cage heavyweight championship. Did he reliquish it recently or something like that?
Yea i think the Heroes Gate event is in the Czech Republic.
Cormier is still listed as the champion on their website, but with him fighting for Strikeforce they must have vacated the title, as their advertising the event as Gaston v East Heavyweight title fight.
Well King of the Cage has for the most part always been a lower level promotion. He made his debut in Strikeforce but leapfrogged from there. So it's understandable they would vacate the title.
The 2 unbeaten fighters at Heroes Gate last night actually lost. Billstein lost by 3rd round triangle, and Zajac lost a Unanimous Decision.
Well as we all know nothing is guarenteed in MMA. So this is one of those things. Anyways we still have many more fights.
Gaston and Cullem both suffered suprise losses last night at KOTC.
And Ryan Couture suffered a loss last night as well. It was close but not close enough. I certainly hope Little Couture can rebound.
