Cage Warriors promise to stage the biggest event in the promotion’s history for CW100, already confirming first names Paddy Pimblett, Jack Shore, Nicolas Dalby and more for December 8th.
After 16 years of events across the world, it’s almost time for Europe’s leading MMA promotion to mark their 100th event with the biggest names they’ve ever put together on one night.
CW100 will take place on December 8th at Cardiff’s Ice Arena, the venue that recently played host to a sold-out crowd at CW97. After talks with the venue and local authorities, Cage Warriors are delighted to announce they will open the arena up to its absolute maximum capacity to meet the high demand for CW100 and are expecting another quick sell-out. For a very limited time only, tickets have been released with a 20% off early bird discount.
Welsh super-prospect Jack Shore, now unbeaten in 12 amateur and 9 professional fights, will fight for the world bantamweight title.
“I can’t thank the Welsh fans enough for the support they’ve shown me throughout my career, and now its time to finally bring the title home for them,” says Shore. “Cage Warriors in Cardiff was an unforgettable night and CW100 will top it. I’ll make sure of that.”
Another of Europe’s most talked-about young prospects is Paddy Pimblett, who will also appear at CW100. Pimblett has provided Cage Warriors fans with some of the craziest memories in the promotions 16-year history and is ready to step up for their biggest night yet.
Pimblett said: “Cage Warriors 100 is a historic night for European MMA and so they need the Baddy there. The Welsh fans always show love so I can’t wait to put on a show for them. Like everyone already knows, I’m never in a boring fight.”
Also confirmed for the CW100 card is the return of UFC vet and former Cage Warriors champion Nicolas Dalby, Northern Irish lightweight Joe McColgan and Welsh fan favourites Josh Reed and Kris Edwards.
The night will also feature a title fight between the finalists of Cage Warriors’ featherweight title tournament, to be decided at CW98 this month. That’s at least two title fights confirmed for December 8th!
“I’m going to have to turn my phone off because every fighter on the roster is calling me up wanting a piece of CW100,” said Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan. “I can promise fans a night like no other for this one. This event is for everyone who’s followed us on the Cage Warriors journey until now.”
