Though several fights fell through recently, the show will go on tonight for King of the Cage at Black Bear Casino near Carlton.

The show's start time is listed as 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door.

Several fights apparently fell through in recent weeks. KOTC provided a fight card that included seven total fights.

The night's main event is two out-of-state competitors vying for the KOTC 205 title. Bill Hill of Texas will take on Jason Butcher of California for the light heavyweight strap.

There are only a handful of Minnesota fighters on the card. Cody Garness is scheduled to compete, as are Dino Saracco and Nathan Hedrick. Jesse Rogge also has strong Minnesota ties, but he's listed with a Wisconsin address.

Garness is taking on Tyeray Knuckles of New Mexicao at 155 pounds, according to the KOTC release.

The full fight card, provided by KOTC, is listed below:
