26 athletes sign exclusive multi-fight deals

Cage Warriors can officially confirm the addition of 26 fighters to its rapidly expanding roster of talent.

The organisation’s latest signings have each penned multi-fight deals to compete exclusively under the Cage Warriors banner.

Many of the athletes will already be familiar to CW fans, while some are preparing for a first outing in the yellow gloves.

This batch of new acquisitions includes fighters from seven different weight classes, with 14 countries represented.

“It gives me great pleasure to welcome these 26 athletes to the CW family,” said Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan.

“Some of these fighters are experienced veterans, others are up-and-coming prospects, but what they’ve all got in common is an ability to entertain the spectators while striving to reach the top of their respective divisions.

“There are undoubtedly future champions among this group of fighters we’re unveiling today. We’ve also got several more to announce over the coming weeks.

“Our roster is now in a better place than it has ever been, but it’s only going to get stronger from here.”

Meanwhile, Cage Warriors is also pleased to announce that four existing members of its stable of fighters – James Webb, Steve Aimable, Jamie Richardson and middleweight champion Christian Leroy Duncan – have inked new deals with the organisation.
