We’re back! And we’re back with a bang! Caged Steel 25 – April 10th 2021 – is finally on the cards!
It’s been almost a year since our last show, and although Caged Steel 25 will take place behind closed doors, we promise to bring you the show you’ve all been waiting for! How does a night in with 20 live fights sound? We’re giving you all of the explosive and fully loaded action we usually bring, but for the first time ever… attire is optional. Predominantly a professional show with professional prelims and an exciting professional main card, you’re not going to want to miss this! Watch all of the excitement unfold from the comfort of your own home on Pay Per View – for just £10!
“We’re back – April 10th! I can’t wait! It’s been so long, it feels like forever since we’ve been able to have a show. It’s been very difficult, and it’s a very difficult time. I’ve had to make some tough decisions but I believe this is definitely the right decision. The team and I are ready to go!” — Dominic Gibbs, CEO at Caged Steel.
Coronavirus seems to have put the whole world on hold this past year – we know it’s been challenging for everyone and we’ve definitely been hit, hard. But we’ve kept ourselves afloat throughout the pandemic because we love our shows, and we know you do too. We didn’t give in to the fight, as we wanted to continue to support our athletes who are desperate to get back out there and give you a show!
Our fighters careers have been non-existent for too long now and we want to get them back doing what they love as soon as we can – all whilst staying within the Government’s Guidelines, which is why we’ve decided to go ahead and take the show behind closed doors. We will be abiding by all of the Government’s Guidelines to ensure your safety and the safety of our fighters. We can confirm that we have had the approval to go ahead with Caged Steel 25, so we’re all set to give you a night IN to remember!
And what a night it will be! We’ve got some really exciting fights in store for Caged Steel 25, which we can guarantee you will not be disappointed with! We’ve got an explosive Flyweight Main Event lined up between Scott Malone and Elliott Hoye. Scott wanted to make a run for the Cage Warrior’s Bantamweight Title, but that didn’t work out for him – he’s now moved down to Flyweight, and this will be his first fight at this weight. Elliott, fighting out of Gym 01 in Portsmouth, is already an established Flyweight fighter with a 7-2 record. Elliott’s coach wanted the best fight for him, and he’s definitely got it with Scott Malone. Top fight!
We’re excited to welcome professional athletes from around the UK to our orange canvas this April 10th, including, Muhidin Abubakar, Dakota Ditcheva, Alan Brykalski and Carl Jones Jnr. There’s a great range of fights taking place in different divisions and so many 50/50 matchups. It will be an interesting fight card to predict.
In our preliminary card, you can also expect – fighting out of SBG Bishop Auckland (run by UFC fighter Davey Grant), Richie Bonallie has been matched with Steel Evolution’s Oscar Ownsworth, who also trains at The Unit and occasionally works with Danny Mitchell (UFC Veteran). This fight is highly anticipated as it’s been in the making for a while now. We’ve heard that they’ve been speaking over private messages about wanting to fight each other – and they’re both wanting to get that next win! But who will take it? Definitely, one to watch!
Fear not, your old favourites will also be making an appearance in the cage – Louis Lee Scott, Musa Christian, Warren Mason and Stafford Swainston are set to be fighting on Caged Steel 25 too! Look out for us announcing our Main Event shortly!
We’re lucky enough to be one of the very few MMA promotions to be able to host an event in the current circumstances, so this is a fantastic opportunity for our local athletes – please, show your support. It’s just £10 to kick start live MMA events again!
