Cage Warriors 94 just keeps getting bigger, with Europe’s leading MMA promotion announcing Salvatore Liga vs Hasan Gulmez, Youri Panada vs Elliot Jenkins and Krzysztof Klaczek as a replacement opponent for Sameer Alekozai.
CW94 is going to be a history maker. The first ever Cage Warriors world title fight to take place in Belgium goes down on June 16th when Brian Bouland faces Ilia Topuria, and now 3 new fights have been announced to further stack the biggest MMA card in the country’s history.
Bouland’s teammate, fellow Red Kings fighter Salvatore Liga, will come up against Hasan Gulmez of Perfect Team MMA. This fight puts athletes from two of the most well respected MMA gyms in Belgium together on the biggest stage in European MMA – a massive opportunity for these young fighters to make a statement in their home country. Red Kings’ World title contender Brian Bouland and Perfect Team’s coach Ben Dandois, a Belgian MMA legend, will be watching over this one closely!

The second new fight to be announced is a lightweight contest between Youri Panada of France and rising prospect Elliot Jenkins, fighting out of Liverpool, UK. Jenkins submitted his last opponent in the first round at CW90, keeping his 100% finish rate intact and taking his record to 5-1. In his corner was lightweight sensation Paddy Pimblett, perhaps the biggest European MMA star outside of the UFC, who will travel to Belgium with Jenkins in search of an away win on June 16th. Panada has looked just as impressive since his pro debut in 2015, and has submitted his last two opponents. This is a clash between two of the strongest up and coming grapplers on the continent!
After Dean Trueman was removed from the CW94 card due to injury, Polish featherweight Krzysztof Klaczek has stepped in on short notice to face Sameer Alekozai, another Perfect Team fighter who won impressively on Cage Warriors’ last event in Belgium in 2017.
Tickets for CW94 at Antwerp’s Lotto Arena, headlined by a huge Bantamweight world title fight between Brian Bouland and Ilia Topuria, are still available from the Tele Ticket Service website here.
