CAGE WARRIORS Fighting Championship has added four exciting prospects to its rapidly-expanding roster.

Brian Moore (pictured), Jordan Desborough, Dave Graham and Mario Saeed have all signed five-fight deals, which will see them fight exclusively for the promotion over a minimum period of 18 months.

Moore (6-1), who’s based at SBG in Dublin, is second only to Conor McGregor in Ireland’s featherweight rankings and the only loss on his record came via decision against the UFC’s Mike Wilkinson.

At 21-years-old, Desborough (5-2) is one of the UK’s most promising lightweights. Fighting out of SBG in Manchester, Desborough has taken three of his five professional wins by first-round submission.

Also a member of Manchester’s SBG camp, Graham (3-1) rose to prominence earlier this year with two impressive victories on the domestic scene, one of which came via TKO after just 12 seconds of the first round.

Trojan Freefighters lightweight Saeed (4-1), who made his professional debut last year, has taken all four of his wins by submission and will be aiming to make an impact in CWFC’s 155lbs division.

“I’d like to welcome Brian, Jordan, Dave and Mario to the roster,” said Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan. “They’re all great prospects.

“We’re always keen to sign top established fighters but bringing in talent for the future is equally as important. That’s what we’ve done here and it’s what we’ll continue to do.”
