Cage Warriors confirm that UFC veteran Mads Burnell will join Flyweight Champion Nathan Greyson among the list of names just announced for November 17th in Colchester.
In a bid to secure Europe’s most elite fighting talent to the Cage Warriors roster, the promotion have now confirmed Mads Burnell (9-3) as the latest addition to their list of recent signings this year. Burnell will make his debut at CW99 in the featherweight division after a 3-fight run with the UFC, where he established himself as one of the top fighting names in Scandinavia. The Danish submission specialist has signed a multi-fight deal, and is committed to beginning a new and exciting fighting journey with Cage Warriors beginning at Colchester’s Charter Hall.
Also confirmed on the CW99 card is flyweight champion Nathan Greyson, who will make the first defence of his belt on November 17th. After a stunning knockout win over Sam Creasey earlier in 2018, it’s time for Greyson to take the first step on his mission to become one of the most notorious Cage Warriors champions of all time.
And Greyson isn’t the only London name looking to make another statement at CW99: welterweights Brad Wheeler, fresh off a submission win at CW95, and Nathan Jones will also join the card.
Corrin Eaton and Steve Aimable, two fighters from the South East of England who have been involved in serious fight-of-the-year contenders so far in 2018, will also appear in front of home fans on Cage Warriors first visit to Colchester.
“The MMA scene in the South East of England is growing by the day, helped along by our Academy there and by the pro names entering the spotlight,” says Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan.
“This event was added to our calendar to reward the South East fans for their support, and to make sure we keep our growing roster active.
“Alongside the local talent is a huge new signing for us in Mads Burnell. We’re in the business of welcoming the best talent in Europe into the Cage Warriors family, and giving them a consistent platform to perform. We put this show on specifically to do that.”
Other names confirmed for the CW99 card include Ireland’s Darren O’Gorman and Middleweight prospects James Webb and Jason Radcliffe.
Tickets for CW99 begin their limited release tomorrow, September 14th at 12pm.
