King of the Cage is storming the Midwest, and this time their weapon of choice is professional MMA fighter Ben Pierre-Saint.
Pierre-Saint first came on the MMA scene in 2013, training out of Inner Strength Martial Arts in WI. He has been climbing the ranks ever since. This “Haitian Sensation” has 12 fights under his belt and maintains a winning record. This Saturday night, he plans on securing not only the win, but the KOTC title.
His opponent is Wisconsin’s Jordan Griffin of Roufusport Academy.
Originally Pierre-Saint was slated to fight Iowa’s Mike Plazola, but that fight fell through. He readily accepted the tough Griffin as the replacement opponent. “I know his record is 9-4 and he TKO’d one of my teammates, Robert Tahtinen, in a fight last year,” said Pierre-Saint.
“However, I think my strengths over him are pretty much in every area, on the feet or the ground. I have improved tremendously from my last fight and I believe the fans will see that on May 16th, for sure.”
Pierre-Saint shared what he will be doing for this opportunity. “I’m moving up a weight class to get the vacant 145lbs. belt and a five-fight contract with KOTC,” he reported. “Thanks KOTC for the opportunity! Most of all, thank God Almighty for putting this together, and my manager Rob Mrotek!
“Like I told my manager I’ll fight anybody at any weight class. Anytime, any place — because I am a fighter. It’s what I do, period.”
Pierre-Saint feels confident going in to the weekend, and on top of his game.
”I will not fail this time!”
