King of the Cage

King of the Cage on August 5th, 2017 was a historic night for Warrior Way. We got to see Nicholas Shammami and Anthony Wong make their MMA Debuts. After having tried to match up with opponents in the last two events these gentleman stepped up against more experienced opponents to ensure they would be able to test themselves in the cage. Nicholas showed the heart of a lion after a very tough first round. He was able to keep his composure and made his opponent work hard through all three rounds, losing a decision. Anthony had a war and came up just a little short losing his fight by a split decision after three rounds. Next up Avan Bashi returned to the cage for his 3rd MMA fight. Avan showed great skill and determination against a much more experienced opponent and was able to get a TKO/Ref stoppage in the first round after a series of unanswered strikes. The night was capped off with Professor Angelo Aimee Popofski taking his last fight in the cage. Angelo has had a tremendous career spanning 18 years and 26 fights. He came up short after an exchange of strikes and was stopped short of the first round. A special thanks to Angelo for letting us be part of his journey and passing his knowledge on to the next generation!
