King of the Cage returns to Washington, Pennsylvania this weekend, as “Heavy Hands” is set to go down at The Meadows Casino.
A total of 11 bouts are on tap for the event, including four in the pro ranks.
In the headliner, West Virginia heavyweight Nathan Bryant (6-6) will take on Brad Scholten (16-22). Bryant will compete under the KOTC banner for the fifth time, as he tries to improve on his 3-1 record for the promotion. In his most recent outing, he lost a decision to Josh Parisian at Caged Power 11 in February. Scholten will make the trek from Iowa as he looks to snap a two-fight losing streak.
In the co-feature, Pittsburgh native Francis Healy (6-3) will look to notch his third straight win, as he takes on Tony Gravely (8-3). Healy posted back-to-back wins under the KOTC banner, but will compete for the first time since topping Pedro Velasco via decision at KOTC: Blood Enemies last May. The Virginia native Gravely has lost two of three, but his lone win came at KOTC: Harms Way at The Meadows last September.
Also, John De Jesus (6-5) will take on Charlie Williams (4-0). The adopted Pittsburgh product De Jesus looks for his third win in a row. He has picked up back-to-back TKO wins over Javon Wright and Cody Stevens in his last two outings. Williams hails from New Mexico and is undefeated in his career thus far.
