Cage Warriors USA Champion Mikey Gomez Signs With Bellator

24/03/2009

Cage Warriors are pleased to announce that another Cage Warriors USA veteran will be fighting on the first season of the Bellator Fighting Championships. As Mikey Gomez has signed a four fight deal with the fledging US based organisation and will be making his debut in April.

Mikey Gomez is the current Cage Warriors USA Welterweight Champion and is also a veteran of Elite XC, Combat Fighting Championships and many more events. Gomez won his Cage Warriors USA Title after an impressive first round win over the American Top Team fighter Charles Blanchard last August. Gomez then followed up that performance by defeating the up and coming fighter Lorenzo Borgomeo at Elite XC in October by Armbar.

Since then Gomez has relocated to California but after some brief negotiations the Cage Warriors USA Champion now finds himself fighting for Bellator on April 10th at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. Gomez will be facing Jesse Juarez, who has previously fought at Invincible MMA , Gladiator Challenge and Strikeforce.

With Bellator promoting 12 events in its first season, which will be shown on a delayed basis on ESPN Desportes, the pressure will be on for both men as they look to impress in front of a National TV audience and a live crowd.

Everyone in the Cage Warriors family wishes Mikey the very best of luck and hopes that he and the other Cage Warriors fighters will impress in this exciting new promotion.
