Kansas City Boys Representing

James Krause, Jason High to represent KC in upcoming UFC bouts
By: Megan K. Armstrong, The Kansas City Star
"KANSAS CITY, Mo. — James Krause will tell you he wears his heart on his sleeve. Then, the 155-pounder will show you the inked heart tattooed to the inside of his bicep. There’s a samurai, too, on his shoulder.

"'It’s my warrior spirit,' Krause says nonchalantly. 'The competitor in me, I guess[.]'

"Jason High, meanwhile, is known as The Kansas City Bandit. There’s no sentimental meaning behind the nickname, but his fighting style gives the moniker legitimacy. High will fight at 155 pounds for the first time in his career at UFC Fight Night 42 on June 7 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

"
Krause’s next fight comes even sooner — his lightweight showdown against Jamie Varner is the first bout of Saturday’s UFC 173 event in Las Vegas, which will be televised live via pay per view."
