5/30 War Gods 5 - Steve Magdaleno Fighting

Wednesday 27 May 2009

It's been almost a year since I caught up with Steve Magdaleno, he was then the Pancrase Neo-Blood tournament lightweight champion, and was also awarded the MVP award in that tournament. You can read my interview with Steve here.

This morning I got a mail from him, and he will be fighting in the upcoming War Gods event this Saturday at Viejas Casino in Alpine, San Diego CA.

Also this time Steve is in a tournament, this time to determine the War Gods lightweight champion. The final will be held at the same venue on June 20.

Steve Magdaleno is still undefeated at 5-0 and I think he has a very good shot in this tournament. He is a late replacement for Andy Wang. He is facing WEC and UFC veteran Kit Cope.

Also in the tournament is DREAM veteran David "Hello Japan" Gardner and

Thanks for the information! I will make sure to watch this event.

I havent seen much of Kit Cope and cant really judge if Magaleno will smash him or not, but I know Magdaleno is very good. The tournament has some very interesting fighters in it.
