CageSport MMA has quickly become the hottest MMA ticket in the Northwest. “This is one of the most anticipated and incredible MMA shows in the Northwest and is sure to excite Seattle not to mention the two title fights – a double header fans will not want to miss” said Adams. “I’m thrilled to be commentating for CageSport in Seattle. The organization always puts on great fights and this show is no exception. The card is stacked with compelling match up’s and also features two title fights.” stated Adams.
At the top of the card will be Brent Knopp (4-0) defending his middleweight title for the first time against C.J. Marsh (2-2). It’s been no surprise that the Burien native, Knopp, has been as successful as he has been. He trains out of Matt Hume’s AMC Pankration, one of the most respected MMA gyms and coaches in the Northwest located in Kirkland, WA. Along with the undefeated professional record of 4-0, Knopp also went 24-2 in the amateurs.
In the co-main event, Brandon Hempleman will take his 9-1 record to the cage when he takes on Vancouver, WA’s Cory Vombaur (6-2) in a title defense for the CageSport Bantamweight Championship.
