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!

Remaining tickets for CW 161 are available here

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.
