Four Dublin dates confirmed
THE HELIX has penned a deal with Cage Warriors Fighting Championship to host the promotion’s next quartet of Dublin events.
The deal will see Cage Warriors hit Ireland’s capital on four occasions between 31 December, 2013, and the corresponding date in 2014, giving Dublin three consecutive New Year’s Eve events following the enormous success of last December’s Cage Warriors 51.
In addition to the New Year’s Eve events of 2013 and 2014, The Helix will also play host to Cage Warriors on Saturday, March 8, and Saturday, July 26, next year.
“We’re delighted to be making such a strong commitment to the Irish market over a 12-month period, particularly at a such a fantastic venue,” said Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan.
“After selling out our previous shows there, the huge demand and interest from the Irish fans could have convinced us to choose a bigger venue, but the intimate nature of The Helix has contributed to making our previous Dublin shows so special.
“We’ve had some very memorable Cage Warriors moments at The Helix already and I’m looking forward to seeing more of those with this next batch of events, starting with CWFC 63 this New Year’s Eve.”
Cage Warriors’ dates for The Helix, Dublin:
Tuesday, 31 December 2013
Saturday, 8 March, 2014
Saturday, 26 July, 2014
Wednesday, 31 December, 2014
CWFC first came to The Helix in June of last year when Conor McGregor defeated Dave Hill to capture the promotion’s vacant featherweight title at Cage Warriors 47.
McGregor stole the show again last New Year’s Eve at CWFC 51, when a first-round KO of Ivan Buchinger saw the Irishman become the first fighter to simultaneously hold CWFC titles in two unified weight classes.
More history was made when CWFC most recently visited The Helix for Cage Warriors 55 this past June, when Dublin’s own Neil Seery submitted Mikael Silander to become the first ever CWFC flyweight champion.
