Cage Warriors welterweight champion has come to an agreement for his release from the promotion and is now a free agent.
A non disclosure agreement has been signed by Cage Warriors and Ross Houston.
MMA Fighting broke the news, with Houston’s management company issuing a statement to MMA Fighting. Kedu Uchegbu, CEO of Black Panther Sports said, “Ross has been released. The negotiation was between the solicitors and very amicable. The terms of the agreement are covered by a non disclosure agreement but both parties have wished each other well.”
Uchegbu claimed that Houston is in negotiation’s with three promotions.
“Ross is negotiating with three companies at present for an April fight. We are looking for fights outside the U.K. to grow his viral fan base. At present, he isn’t looking at signing with any company that is based in the U.K. or Ireland solely.”
Graham Boylan, Cage Warriors president also issued a statement to MMA Fighting, “Ross Houston & Cage Warriors have decided to part ways by mutual agreement. Ross Houston has thanked Cage Warriors for the work Cage Warriors has done in getting his career to this stage. Ross is now a free agent.”
Houston won the welterweight title in an epic battle with Stefano Paterno, when he won a split decision in October 2018. He returned in June of last year when he was involved in a bloodbath with Nicolas Dalby that had to be stopped and called a no contest due to the amount of blood on the canvas.
Could we see a rematch with Dalby in the UFC?
