Cody East was able to become the KOTC heavyweight champion last month with a decision over Nick Rossborough. While one belt might be fine for some, East wants more. He heard he’s getting a crack at the 230 pound belt and then wants to fight Tony Lopez for the super heavyweight title.
“I could probably make 205 if I want to,” said East to MMA Weekly. “If I get those two other belts, I’d like to be the first person to have four belts at the same time, that’d be something worth wanting to do also.”
With two fights left on his KOTC contract, East has the chance to make history for the promotion.
East is 7-1, spending his last two years competing for KOTC. The only loss came from Lopez and East has taken four in row since that April 2012 loss.
There is no confirmed return date for East.
