This past April 22nd, Soboba Casino played host to Gladiator Challenge's "Hostile" event. In the main event,

former King of the Cage Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Tony "Kryptonite" Lopez stepped into

the GC cage to face current GC Heavyweight Champion Ruben "Warpath" Villareal, but with the vacant GC

In the end, it was "Kryptonite" who was too much for "Warpath," as he secured the victory and the belt with a

two-round beatdown. Congrats to the new champ.
