Elmer Waterhen retained the KOTC Canadian Middleweight Championship last night in Edmonton, Alberta, as the rugged veteran tapped out challenger Mike Froese with a first round, rear–naked-choke. The bout marked Waterhen’s first title defense, after the Saskatchewan fighter stopped Brad Stewart last July to secure the title.
After fighting twice in 2010 and just once in 2011, rising middleweight Luke Harris is focused on getting in the cage as much as possible in 2012. Case in point, after tapping out Elliot Duff with a first round, rear-naked-choke just a few weeks ago, Harris will be back hunting for his eighth pro win this Friday night. “Basically I’m making a run at it,” said Harris (7-1), who will battle veteran Brandon MacArthur at King of the Cage Canada’s March 9 th “Infamy” card in Edmonton.
After submitting Chris Lauzon in just 50 seconds at King of the Cage Canada’s “Goldmine” event in October, Mike Froese has not only been tapped for a main event appearance, the rising veteran has been granted a shot at Canadian Middleweight Champion Elmer Waterhen.
