“Seven Feathers Casino Resort is one of the premiere entertainment venues in the Northwest and we are so excited to be holding our show over there,” said CageWarriors Northwest promoter George Dodd. “We have been there three times before with CageSport shows and it’s always been an incredible experience. When Northwest Fight Promotions was created one of the top priorities was returning to Canyonville.”

Prior to embarking on his MMA career, Loder had an extensive background in wrestling, competing collegiately at Northern Iowa University where he is top 10 in three UNI records, including ninth in overall victories, sixth in career winning percentage and fifth in career dual wins and a multiple-time NCAA Championships participant.
