King of the Cage (KOTC) is headed to the Philippines after signing a multi-year deal to promote live events in the Southeast Asian nation.
Two events are set for this year with a gym also being opened to help find local talent.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity in promoting, developing and bringing exposure to these prospects in the Philippines through the King of the Cage global platform,” said Ray Young, chairman of KOTC. “Soon we’ll have a KOTC world champion coming out of the Philippines that will be recognized globally and will have the ability to compete throughout the world.”
The California based promotion has been expanding their market as of late. They recently initiated a plan to hold events in Mongolia, which will air on the Sport Box. The first card in Mongolia is being planned for the end of 2013.
No exact date for future shows was made public.
