As the new year dawns, hope springs eternal in all parts of MMA’S wide world. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a lion of soaring sunlight ready to sear through opponents as the newest member of Cage Warriors signing den. A professional mixed martial artist since March 2019 and representing Reps MMA, Connor Hitchens owns a 5-1 record through six professional bouts comprised of three knockouts, one submission, and one decision. Hitchens has fought for several promotions over the course of his journey as a pro-MMA fighter so far including UK Fighting Championships and Evolution Of Combat.
