King of the Cage – KOTC: “Chosen Few” Results and Photos of the Night

KOTC Chosen Few

This past Saturday, July 8, I was up in Rio Rancho, N.M. shooting photos for my third King of the Cage (KOTC) event of 2017.

Even though four of the top fights had fallen off the card in the 48 hours prior to it’s start, fortunately the rest of the fights were on point with three of the 11 bouts going to decision.

Chris Brown of JacksonWink MMA pro debut fell of the card due to his opponent not making weight, as well as the main event featuring the 14-1, three-belt KOTC champion Juan Archuleta out of Joe Stevenson’s Cobra Kai Gym.

Out of those three decisions, the split decision win by Nikko Nathon over Sterling Peak was an all out brawl and in my opinion the fight of the night. But on that I figured I’d drop a few photos for you all and show ya some of that KOTC awesomeness you missed out on!!
