Tuesday October 06, 2015– On Saturday, October 17, King of the Cage will debut at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada inside The Joint with a star-studded, world-class Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) mega-event, headlined by a middleweight (185 pounds) title fight between rival superstars Daniel Hernandez and Daniel Madrid. The event will be broadcast live on MAVTV (214 DIRECTV, 248 Dish Network, 810 Verizon FiOS).
Daniel “El Leon” Hernandez has been a busy champion for King of the Cage. He continues to ride his winning streak and successful title defenses, and has been pretty much fighting every other month since June of this year. The crown is not heavy for Hernandez as he continues to step up and defend again this month at “Sinister Intentions” which takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Page 2 Sports’ busiest podcaster, Chris Rodriguez of Blue Collar Sports had a chance to sit down with the champion and discuss his upcoming bout. His opponent, Daniel Madrid seems to be the latest threat to reigning champion since his record boasts a high rate of submissions. Not a concern for Hernandez who holds a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
In his last bout he was in a tight spot where he thought about tapping, when Rodriguez brought it up to tease him about what goes through one’s mind in situations where one could lose what they work so hard for, survival instincts kick in.
“No, no, no don’t tap. Go to sleep or get out.” Hernandez said of the close call. “You have turn the switch to where it’s not training anymore. I have to get out, or I’m dead.”
The 34-year-old champion has no quit in him and will continue to defend against all challengers so long as he holds the middleweight crown. “Sinister Intentions” will be broadcast live on MAVTV at 7pm PT. See the full event info here.
