His first True Life appearance in 2004 followed him as he made his way to Thailand to compete in “Bare Knuckles” Muay Thai competition. Cope won the fight by second round knockout over his Burmese opponent.
Cope (1-4 MMA) has not fared so well in Mixed Martial Arts. His only win came by way of TKO over Mike Lucero at “Valor Fighting: Home of the Brave”
Cope will look to get on track as he makes his World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) debut, taking on Dave Cochran (14-17) in the main card at WEC 34 on May 30 in Atlantic City.
