New signings can be the answer to a promotion’s prayers because it allows them additional growing room in other sectors of the globe while bolstering their overall bottom line at the same time. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to the newest constrictor ready to crush the competition’s soul as the latest addition to the flyweight division for Cage Warriors as 2024 gets underway. A professional mixed martial artist since June 2022 and representing One MMA Academy, Sheldon Ryan holds a 3-1 record in four bouts comprised of two submissions and one knockout. He has fought for Budo Fighting Championships and Full Contact Contender and has a 100 percent finish rate.
