James “Colossus” Thompson will be returning to his hometown of London, England to compete at Cage Rage 28: VIP. The card, scheduled for Sept. 20th, will feature Thompson going up against Cage Rage veteran Piotr Kusmierz.
Thompson, a veteran of PRIDE and EliteXC, is 2-7 in his last nine bouts though he still has a strong fan following in England. Thompson’s last outing came against Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. After three hard fought rounds the bout was stopped when Thompson took a flurry of punches from Slice which popped his cauliflower ear and left him dazed.
Piotr Kusmierz is a relative newcomer to MMA with a record of 1-1. Kusmierz holds a TKO victory over Anton Schutte with his sole blemish coming to Stav Economou at Cage Rage 27: Step Up.
Also scheduled to appear is UFC veteran Ross Pointon who’ll be battling Ch’e Mills for the Cage Rage British welterweight title. Pointon (6-10) is coming off an impressive submission victory over Ross Mason at Cage Rage 26: Extreme.
Ch’e Mills is a Cage Rage veteran who has amassed an impressive record of 6-1 with 1 no contest. Mills holds victories over Marius Zaromskis, Ross Mason, and Afran Saeed.
