Warrior Promotions UK MMA limited are proud to announce the main event at Cage Warriors: Enter The Rough House 6 will be a Welterweight division clash between the Cage Warriors Under 73kg (161lbs) World Champion Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy (17-6-0-1nc) and the 2005 European Vale Tudo -76kg winner Mattias Awad (4-1-0).

Dan Hardy returns to Nottingham and faces another tough fight against the Swedish submission specialist Mattias Awad in the main event of Cage Warriors: Enter The Rough House on April 19th. Hardy who is already lined up to face the two-time UFC veteran Chad Reiner at Cage Warriors USA on March 29th, has decided to take advantage of a trip home to the UK to take another fight against one of Europe’s best Welterweights.

Whilst Mattias Awad is known for his submission skills, durability and patience, which has seen him claim wins over the likes of Daniel Weichel, Mario Stapel, Mohamed Khacha and Fabricio Nascimento. These fighters are all known for being some of the toughest fighters in Europe but were undone by Awad’s wide variety of skills. Awad is also famous for winning the the 2005 European Vale Tudo -76kg Grand Prix by TKO’ing Mohamed Khacha and submitting the BJJ Black Belt Fabricio Nascimento in the Final.

However Awad has spent some time away due to injuries but still remains one of Europe’s best 77kg fighters and with his vast submission grappling and Shootfighting background, he will test Hardy’s famed submission defence to the limit in what should be another Cage Warriors classic on April 19th.
