Following a blockbuster debut in March, Europe’s Leading MMA Organisation, Cage Warriors, returns to the Sycuan Casino Resort on Friday, June 2nd, for CW 155.
March 3rd’s CW 149 marked the first event of an ongoing partnership between the European MMA leader and California’s oldest & luckiest casino.
The sold-out crowd witnessed a pulse-pounding night of MMA action, including big wins for San Diego favorites Wilson Reis, Damon ‘The Nomad’ Wilson and Jamey Lynch.
With tickets now on sale for the June 2nd date, CW have revealed the initial cast of fighters set to strap on the famous yellow gloves for what looks set to be the premier So-Cal MMA event of the summer.
Roberto Hernandez (6-1) extended his unbeaten run to six at CW 149, bringing the crowd to its feet for the duration of his epic three-rounder against John De Jesus.
Bill Wilson (1-1) will make his long-awaited promotional return, looking to get back into the win column after splitting his first two CW bouts.
Local hero Jamey Lynch (6-3) scored a gutsy decision win over Georgii Eivas in March, and will no doubt have the crowd in his corner once again come June.
Elijah Harris (4-2) will be looking for his fourth pro submission victory in what will be his fourth CW fight.
In addition to the above, a number of participants from The MMA Fight Academy, an exciting reality project helmed by Mola in association with Cage Warriors, will take the next steps on their journey on June 2nd.
Frans Lincol Sormin (4-0), Jon Setiawan Saragih (1-0), Francis Breen (0-0), Jimmy Quinn (0-0), Teddy Adlington-Stringer (0-0), Connor Wilson (4-2), Marin Vetrila (2-0) and Milad Ahady (5-1) are all set to appear.
“Our sell-out show in March was a fantastic start to the partnership between the Sycuan Casino Resort and Cage Warriors…” said CW President Graham Boylan.
“But on June 2nd, we have plans to blow it out of the water. With the fight card we’re planning, the Sycuan Casino is going to be the number one destination for Californian MMA this summer!”
Further fighters and initial match-ups for the event will be released in due course.
Tickets for Cage Warriors 155 are available now via CageWarriors.com, with the entire event also airing live on UFC Fight Pass and international broadcast partners.
