Mohsen Bahari at Cage Warriors 74 on November 15, 2014, 1. def. Add in a brash attitude and a connection to Paradigm Sports Management (which certainly doesn’t hurt) and “The White Kong” should be UFC bound sooner than later. Gerardo Fanny at Cage Warriors 115 on September 25, 2020. 3. def.  CW are one of the few top promotions to take their events abroad, travelling throughout countries in Europe, North America and the Middle East. The promotion has since secured a digital broadcasting deal with the UFC to have its shows shown live across the world on UFC Fight Pass, and has also brokered television broadcast deals with major broadcasters across Europe and Asia. Cage Warriors bouts are officiated by top European officials, including British referees Marc Goddard and Rich Mitchell, and judged by world-experienced officials including Ben Cartlidge, David Lethaby and Mark Collett. So why then are we looking at a much younger, less experienced challenger instead of one of the proven vets that will walk away with a belt? Deyan Topalski at Cage Warriors 71 on August 22, 2014 Jesse Taylor at Cage Warriors Fight Night 6 on May 24, 2012, 1. def.

Thomas Hytten at CWFC: Strike Force 4 on November 26, 2005 Early on in the fight, Grant took flight and snatched a nasty flying armbar – a gutsy move against such an experienced foe. 4. def.

He made his amateur debut 6 years ago and has fought 14 times total. Jones, whenever he makes his UFC debut, would be competing outside of the Cage Warriors promotion for the first time in almost three years. But in June 2015 Boylan announced on The MMA Hour he had acquired the promotion and would be bringing it back to prominence again.. It’s unclear at this time which weight class Jones will focus on now that he’s in the UFC but obviously he has experience competing at both 155 pounds and 170 pounds.

Although he grew up a wrestler, Cartwright fell in love with his hands when he hit his first boxing gym. To start, Hadley isn’t as inexperienced as his 5-0 record might appear. Jones has stopped 2 of his last 4 opponents with knees to the body. 2.

In addition, he’s faced some high level competition in that time including a 5 round decision over TUF cast member Nkazimulo Zulu, who he took the EFC belt off of. Jones joins a long line of former Cage Warriors standouts to join the UFC roster, none more famous than Conor McGregor, who was also a two-division champion when he fought for the European promotion. That fight came after Jones won the lightweight title with another first-round knockout against Joe McColgan. The UFC’s Welsh contingent just got a little bigger with the addition of two-division Cage Warriors champion Mason Jones. Cage Warriors bouts are conducted in conjunction with local athletic commissions, using the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. Before that loss, Grant had rattled off six straight victories including two submissions in a combined 51 seconds. Hughes is another fighter with a deceptively short record.

If that isn’t enough to get excited about his sub skills, take a look at what he did to UFC veteran John Maguire during a grappling match back at Grapplefest 8 in February. The latest of these signings may have come recently after undefeated prospect Mason Jones has signed with the UFC.. At just 25 years old and with a professional MMA record of 10-0, Jones is just the latest prospect to come from the Cage Warriors circuit. Like Hadley he has an extensive amateur career that gives him 6 years of experience and 13 total fights. John Phillips at Cage Warriors 54 on May 4, 2013, 1. def. The lightweight champion caps off the weekend with the Saturday headlining spot opposite of Adam Proctor. Still not settled in.
