Cage Warriors are pleased to announce they will be streaming their entire ‘Right to Fight’ event for FREE on the UK’s leading Mixed Martial Arts hub www.cagewarriors.com on Sunday 18th July at 7pm UK time.
This event took place back in May of this year at the NEC Pavilion in Birmingham, England. And this show saw one of the UK’s oldest and most respected Mixed Martial Arts promotions return with an exciting 10 bout fightcard, which included numerous up-and-coming UK prospects alongside some top European talent.
Headlined by a vacant Cage Warriors World Welterweight Title bout between the unbeaten German prodigy Pascal Krauss (8-0-0) and the Scottish Dinky Ninja Fight Team member John Quinn (8-0-0). Cage Warriors wanted to show the MMA world they meant business as they put together a bout between men who have never been the distance and hold an amazing 12 first round wins between them This Title fight bout had even more meaning as both men fought for the Title that was previously held by UFC star Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy.
Whilst this event also saw the vacant Cage Warriors World Lightweight Title on the line. As the long time Champion Alexandre “Xandinho” Izidro stepped aside due to injury, to allow the heavy hitting pair of Greg “Hitman” Loughran (23-13-0) and Kenneth Rosfort (13-2-0) to fight for the Title instead.
Loughran returned to the UK after three Stateside bouts which saw him compete in the inaugural Bellator Lightweight Tournament as well as making two appearances in the Florida based “Art of Fighting” event. A top 10 ranked UK Lightweight; Loughran holds wins over the BAMMA Champion Rob Sinclair and the UFC veteran Andre Winner as well as many other domestic fighters since making his pro debut at the age of 16 nearly a decade ago.
Whilst Rosfort earned his Title opportunity due to a fantastic run of form that saw him walk away with 10 wins in his last 11 bouts. The two-weight Fighter Gala Champion also has 9 career KO wins on his record, which includes wins over the likes of the The Ultimate Fighterâ season 9 competitor Jeff Lawson, and wins over the M-1 Global and former CWFC Title Challengers Franco de Leonardis and Diego Gonzalez.
In short, this was yet another Cage Warriors Title bout that promised fireworks between two highly rated unsigned European Lightweights.
This event also included a bonus ‘10th Legion European Title fight’, as the North East standout Peter Irving (10-7-1) took on the rising German Welterweight Nordin Asrih (14-4-1) in one of the night’s more intriguing match-ups.
Whilst other key bouts saw the return of the Bellator signed “Judo” Jim Wallhead (18-5) who took on the late replacement Shaun Lomas in a catchweight bout.
Also on the card was the former CWFC Showdown Lightweight Tourney veteran Mick Sinclair who took on the Welsh striker Josh Dennis in another Catchweight bout, which was signed after Sinclair’s CFC British Lightweight Title bout against AJ Wenn fell through at the last minute.
