For immediate release:

The Cage Warriors Fighting Championship is pleased to announce the continuing expansion of their broadcast footprint with the signing of an agreement with the UK based sports channel Premier Sports TV. This groundbreaking deal will mean Cage Warriors will be available on a free-to-view and delayed basis on the channel following each of the 8 events planned for the rest of 2011.

Cage Warriors 41 which will be held on Easter Sunday will become the first event to be broadcast free-to-view on Premier Sports that operates on the Sky platform, channel 433. Live streaming will continue to be available free through the Cage Warriors website.

This announcement follows the successful broadcast and worldwide live streaming of the Cage Warriors 40 show.  That event comprised of six televised CWFC bouts which included a successful CWFC Bantamweight Title defence by Paul “Metabolic” McVeigh. The show was headlined by a Women’s Super-Flyweight showdown between the Bellator, Elite XC and BodogFIGHT veteran Rosi “The Surgeon” Sexton and the Japanese based American Strikeforce veteran Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi.

This agreement highlights the level of commitment the highly regarded and respected UK based MMA Promotional Company has in showcasing high level UK Mixed Martial Arts action, and simultaneously providing their growing talent pool with significant exposure through a growing national and international television audience.

Cage Warriors Director Graham Boylan said “this is a great partnership for Cage Warriors Fighting Championship and a great opportunity for fighters worldwide to get the exposure they deserve as professional athletes. The fighters put so much time and effort into this sport they deserve this exposure. I’m very excited for them”.

Richard Webb from Premier Sports commented “We are delighted to be able to offer Cage Warriors the platform and coverage that matches with their ambitions to consolidate and grow as Britain’s number 1 MMA championship. By making each event available to 10 million Sky platform homes for free, we believe the popularity of the event will only be enhanced.  No subscription to our channel will be required to view this event.”

Premier Sports operates on the Sky platform, channel 433 and features NRL, NASCAR, South American Football and regular boxing from around the world. Visit them online at http://www.premiersports.tv


About Cage Warriors

The Cage Warriors Fighting Championship (CWFC) is one of the UK’s leading professional mixed martial arts events and was established in the summer of 2002. As well as running MMA events the CWFC also has its own website and forum at http://www.cagewarriors.com

Further details on the April 24th event which will take place at the Grade II listed HMV Forum in Kentish Town, North London, will follow soon.  But already the promotion promises a card that will see several top UK fighters in action alongside their European counterparts, as the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship returns to London for the third time inside seven months in front of another sold out crowd.
