COGA Combat Games presents Rumble on the Ridge 23 Saturday April 14th at the Snoqualmie Casino, with 12 fights, 4 professional & 8 amateur, scheduled for a evening of exciting combat action. The UFC's Gray Maynard will be on hand as the Special Guest commentator & Playboy's Jaclyn Swedberg will be the Guest Hostess.
In the main event, undefeated Ian "The Mule" Williams out of Combat Sport & Fitness takes on tough Sikjitsu fighter Jerome Jones in a pro 170lb showdown.
In the Co-main Event, Dub-City's Charon Spain and John Martinez of the White Swan Warriors will do battle at 140 lbs. These two fought as pros back in 2009 with Spain getting a first round submission, so Martinez will be looking for some redemption. Ludus FC's Drew Brokenshire looks to make it two in a row as pro in a Featherweight matchup with Ring Demon's Gabriel Solorio, and AKA's Ken Alexander & Base Fitmass' Frankie Orr will fight in a 180 pro matchup. In the two amateur title fights, Ethnic FC's Paul Njoku defends his 145 lb belt against Jason Strikland of MVP MMA, and Alderwood MMA's Ben Wada & White Swan's David 'Bubba' Ahto battle for the 125 lb belt.
For the 2nd year in a row, COGA was chosen by the fans and NW Fightscene Judges as NW Fightscene's Pro Promotion of the Year for Washington State for its Rumble on the Ridge show. COGA President Joe DeRobbio spoke to NW Fightscene about winning the award and COGA's upcoming plans for the rest of 2012.
