It’s fight week in Dublin! Cage Warriors returns to the Emerald Isle for CW 161, a historic first night of Mixed Martial Arts at the iconic RDS!
Topping the bill, current 145lb champion Paul Hughes moves up to the lightweight division to begin his journey to a second world title.
He’ll face surging Belgian knockout artist Jan Quaeyhaegens, who enters their bout on the back of a five-fight winning streak and with a 100% finish ratio.
Also on the card, former double-champ Mason ‘The Dragon’ Jones returns against recent title challenger Yann Liasse.
Making up the rest of the main card, a trio of Irishmen will face international opposition, as Ryan Shelley meets Jordy Bakkes, James Sheehan faces Olli Santalahti and – in a late addition to the bill – Leon Hill takes on Ieuan Davies.
