Cage Warriors Ė Young Guns
Itís clear to see that with this first show under new management, the brand mean business. The card is a mixture of future stars and established names, both domestically and internationally.
The main event sees Danish destroyer and current Cage Warriors Lightweight Champion Kenneth Rosfort-Nees defend his belt against UFC veteran and HIT Squad product Matt Veach. Itís an incredibly exciting striker against grappler contest that proves the intentions of the promotion to push the boundaries of the sport in the UK through the stratosphere.
HIT Squad Coach and long time trainer of UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes, Marc Fiore, will be making the trip to London to both teach and corner his fighters. Itís a testament to the drawing power and the respect that the brand name has that professionals of this level are only too happy to be a part of it.
Elsewhere on the card we see another HIT Squad fighter, Jake ďHitmanĒ Hecht, take on one of the top welterweights in the UK in TUF9 qualifier and former Cage Rage Champion Che Mills.
Itís great to see that more and more shows are surfacing in the UK at the moment, it shows that the sport is reaching a greater number of people and the revolution is truly gathering momentum. As we look forward to Young Guns on October 1st itís important to look back with pride on the achievements of the Cage Warriors organization and the role they have undoubtedly played in the development of the sport in this country.
Whatever happens this Friday you can be sure that this wonít be the last you hear of Cage Warriors; with the standard of the card they have delivered, this may be a night of fights that is not only talked about but enthralls the next generation of mixed martial arts fans for a long time.
