MTV will feature Kit Cope, a champion Muay Thai veteran and one-time UFC fighter, for a second time as part of its "MTV True Life" documentary series. Cope was featured in "True Life: I'm a Muay Thai Fighter" four years ago, and the program was one of the most popular episodes in series history. Cope's management (KODynasty.
com) recently told MMAjunkie.com that Cope has been filming for the new episode during the past two months, and cameras will catch his World Fighting Championships debut, which takes place May 30 in Atlantic City. Cope (1-4), who recently signed a three-fight deal with the organization, meets Dave Cochran (14-17) in the night's main event. (NFL defensive tackle turned MMA fighter Marcus Jones has also been booked for the event.
) Although he's excelled in Muay Thai and won a few titles, Cope's MMA career hasn't been as successful. He debuted in 1999 and suffered two losses, but after a three-year layoff, he claimed his first victory -- a TKO of Mike Lucero in Valor Fighting. That performance earned him a ticket to the UFC, where he fought -- and lost to -- Kenny Florian in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter 2 Finale. Cope will be a guest on today's edition of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), an MMAjunkie.
