New signings are often considered to be as good as advertised when they put pen to paper with Cage Warriors with many of them making an immediate impact on the promotion’s investment in their stock. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a locomotive of shadowy steam ready to jump the track line at bantamweight for the organization. A professional mixed martial artist since April 2022 and representing Diesel Gym, Shirzad Qudrian holds a 3-0 record comprised of one submission, one knockout and one decision. Qadrian has fought for Contenders and Vida Fight Championships. The majority of Qudrian’s wins over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter have been inside the distance. He has finished two out of his three victories during his time in the professional ranks. Qudrian has gone to the scorecards a single time during his pro career, sweeping it clean across the board in that one and only instance. Qudrian has one second-round finish under his belt to go along with a single third-round finish in three appearances as a professional mixed martial artist so far. Both of Qadrian’s finishes during his professional career have come within three rounds.
In his MMA debut at Contenders 32, he faced Stefano Catacoli and went on to tap him out in the second round via rear-naked choke to secure his first submission win as a professional. Qadrian defeated Mustafa Naseri via unanimous decision at Contenders 33 to earn his first decision victory as a professional.
Then at Vida Fight Championships Road to Venator, he defeated Pav Singh Sahota via technical knockout in the third round. The win earned Qadrian the first knockout victory of his professional career in addition to extending his undefeated streak to three to begin his career in the process. Qadrian is one train that operates on the fast track!
