I have just started up as the editor of the Combat Sports News page on King of the Cage web site at: http://kingofthecage.com/combat_sports.html . We hope to have this page regularly updated with press releases, results, and news from the various disciplines in the combat sports. We will have five categories: MMA and NHB, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Grappling, Boxing, Wrestling, and Kickboxing, Karate, Sumo, etc. Stay tuned for more announcements to come.
