Barrett Brown, King of Texas
The man who long claimed he was Texas’s king made it official at Lions Pride Sports’ epic one-night event.
BARRETT BROWN was crowned at the inaugural King of Texas Tournament in Caldwell, besting nine other competitors who competed over six grueling matches.
“.50 Caliber” picked up a win in the opening round over up-start rookie CADE CARSON in a rematch from our June event in College Station. Once again, the two men left the contest with more respect for one another, but it was Brown who moved on to the five-way elimination match final.
Joining Brown in the final were:
LANCE HOYT, who defeated MAX CASTELLANOS
MOONSHINE MANTELL, who defeated BRENT MCKENZIE
NOBE BRYANT, who defeated RICKY STARKS
NATE JOLLY, who defeated CAM COLE and surprise entrant TERRALE TEMPO
Interference and cheating by The Brand’s CHASE PARADISE, Castellanos and a returning ANGEL BLUE propelled Mantell to the final two, leaving him to fight Brown. The Lions Pride Sports Champion looked to be the heavy favorite with The Brand at ringside and the size advantage over Brown, but Brown showed tremendous heart and fight, fighting off all The Brand’s members in the midst of a beat down, and eventually leveling Mantell with a flurry of offense, capped by a running knee. A three count later, and Brown fulfilled what he had prophesied. He is the inaugural King of Texas.
