Two more fights added to CW 130

Two more fights have been added to the card for Cage Warriors’ return to San Diego on October 17th.

Mark Climaco will take on Joseph Morales in a flyweight contest at CW 130, while Alan Benson and Justin Barry will meet in a middleweight bout.

Speaking on the two additions to CW 130, Cage Warriors president, Graham Boylan, said: “Joseph Morales put on a fantastic fight at CW 126 with Kevin Wirth and picked up a decision win. We know he wants to showcase his development and return to the UFC.

“Mark Climaco will be a tough test for Morales though, he’s 6-0 as a pro and you know he wants to extend that to 7-0 and add a UFC scalp to his record.

“Justin Barry will be making his pro debut with us so I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do when faced with a tough opponent in Alan Benson.”

Joseph Morales sounded upbeat on the announcement of his return to the cage, telling Cage Warriors: “I’m looking forward to putting on a show!”

“Bopo” holds a 10-2 record, with seven victories within the distance and had a three-fight stretch in the UFC that saw him compete against former UFC flyweight champion, Deiveson Figueiredo.

Mark Climaco will be looking to extend his record to 7-0 at CW 130, telling Cage Warriors: “I’m grateful for the opportunity and the challenge in front of me.

“Fighting in front of a crowd in my home state against a great opponent fires me up and I know it’ll bring out the best in me, which, in turn, will be a great showcase for Cage Warriors.

“The fans should expect a great mixed martial arts fight!”

In the middleweight division, Justin Barry will be making his pro debut, and sounds eager to compete: “I’ve been training MMA since I was 14, I have a lot of experience and I’m eager to get back in the cage and show everybody what I can do.

“I want to say thanks to my coaches and my teammates for helping me prepare and making me a better fighter.”

Alan Benson sounds equally eager to compete, saying: “I’m excited to turn the beast on!”
