Regardless of the Fate of Elite XC, King of the Cage Survives
One of the worst fall outs from the Elite XC implosion was the negative impact on the mid-sized promotions that had been purchased by the doomed organization. One of the orgs effected was Terry Trebilcock's King of the Cage. KOTC provided an early stage for stars such as Rampage Jackson, Rashad Evans, Diego Sanchez, Keith Jardine, Paul Buentello and Mac Danzig. I'm happy to see that they're back up and running.

Despite announcement, Frank Trigg hasn't signed for Feb. 14 XCF headliner
Despite an announcement from the Xtreme Cagefighting Federation that Frank Trigg will headline its Feb. 14 "Rumble In Race Town" event, the UFC and PRIDE veteran said he hasn't signed a contract for the fight. Although expected to compete at the event, Trigg recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) nothing is official. XCF announced on Saturday that Trigg would headline the event, which coincides with NASCAR's Daytona 500, against an opponent to be determined. The Feb. 21 event takes place at the Daytona Beach Ocean Center in Daytona, Fla., on the eve of the world-famous Daytona 500. Trigg (18-6) last competed in October 2008 when he scored a unanimous-decision win over Hawaiian striker Falaniko Vitale. The former top UFC welterweight contender has now won three consecutive fights and five of his past six.

Kitaoka, Santiago Crowned By Sengoku
SAITAMA, Japan -- Satoru Kitaoka and Jorge Santiago were crowned champions after they finished their opponents by submission at Sengoku “No Ran 2009” on Sunday before some 18,000 fans at the Saitama Super Arena. In the main event, Kitaoka kept true to his word, as he put away Takanori Gomi before the former Pride Fighting Championships lightweight king could do anything of note. Sizing up each other for a tense moment, Kitaoka was the first to act, as he dove for a takedown. Gomi spun out of the way to avoid the shot, but the persistent Kitaoka made another attempt and ate a grazing hook in the process.
