THE BIGGEST mixed martial arts event ever to hit Wales will take place at the 5,000-capacity Motorpoint Arena on Saturday, May 4, 2013, when Cage Warriors Fighting Championship returns to Cardiff.

Cage Warriors 54 will feature a CWFC title fight, as well as a host of other exciting bouts involving some of the top fighters from the UK and beyond.

Swansea’s John Phillips is set to have massive home support in the Welsh capital as he challenges for the CWFC middleweight belt against Jesse Taylor (pictured).

Phillips (16-5-0-1nc), who has taken all 16 of his wins by stoppage, had a frustrating second-half of 2012 after being ruled out of action due to a succession of hand injuries.

The 27-year-old Welshman had secured a shot at the CWFC middleweight strap by defeating Chris Fields in the main event at Cage Warriors 48 last July, but an injury picked up in that bout forced him out of a meeting with Pavel Kusch in the organisation’s title tournament final.

Taylor (24-9), who fights out of Team Quest in California, is a UFC, Strikeforce and Dream veteran who holds notable victories over the likes of Tom Watson and Chris Camozzi.

The 29-year-old was crowned CWFC middleweight champion at Cage Warriors 51 in Dublin on New Year’s Eve when he submitted Chris Fields by second-round rear-naked choke.

Tickets for Cage Warriors 54, priced from just £25, are available to purchase HERE.
