Cage Warriors is no stranger to giving prospects a launching pad to get their journey off to a running start. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a Belfast bruiser looking to create a shower of sparks with repeated blows from his hammer as he sets sail in the promotion, with a triumphant roar of national pride in the year of global renewal and rebirth. A professional mixed martial artist since March 2021 and representing Fight Academy Ireland, Matthew Elliott holds a 1-0 professional record with his lone victory as a pro-MMA fighter coming via decision. Elliott is currently 1-0 under the banner of Cage Warriors. He has gone to the scorecards a single time during his career in the professional MMA ranks, winning via decision across the board in a three-round affair over the course of 15 minutes.
In his professional MMA debut and promotional debut with Cage Warriors on the opening night of the Cage Warriors trilogy at Cage Warriors 120 from London’s York Hall, he faced a fellow pro debutant in Scott Pedersen and went on to defeat him via unanimous decision. The win earned Elliott the first decision victory of his professional career. He also picked up victory number one under the banner of Cage Warriors in the process. With numerous fighters on the rise thanks to regional academies, Elliott is the latest in a line of prideful lions whose roar echoes through the rafters!
