Sports

King of the Cage returns to the Winnavegas Casino Resort on Saturday with 11 nationally televised fights live on MavTV.

Three of those are for championship belts. Le Mars native Matt Gabel is featured in one of the co-main events as is Jamie Milanowski.

Andy Nguyen showcases the main event as she tries for her first atomweight world title defense.

“It’s a five round fight. I’m not planning on going all five rounds, I’ve got a 6 o’clock flight to catch,” said Nguyen. “So I’m gonna try to be entertaining maybe one or two rounds. I’m keeping it. I’m keeping it. And I mean, if I lose it than I’ll be here back in January for a rematch.”

“Of course bragging rights, you know? The respect of having the world title,” said Milanowski. “That’s really big for me and just another opportunity for me to progress in my career.”

Other fighters on the card include Drako Rodriguez, Danny Black and former North High wrestling star Blaze Gill. Doors open at 4:30 with fights beginning at 6.
