The best organizations are no strangers to getting top talents on either side of the Atlantic to put their names to paper with a flourish of a pen in the spirit of fair and competitive balance for growth purposes as a professional promotion. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a knight of equal chivalry ready to swing the scales of victorious justice in his fighting favor as he enters the Cage Warriors middleweight division on March 30 at Cage Warriors 169 at the O2 Indigo in London following his acquisition through a signing batch. A professional mixed martial artist since April 2023 and representing Novo BJJ, Joe Middleton holds a 1-0 record with his lone win during his career in the professional MMA ranks coming via submission. Middleton has never gone to the scorecards at any juncture over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter with a finish rate of 100 percent to show for it. He has a single third-round finish under his belt in his one and only appearance as a professional mixed martial artist so far. Middleton has fought for Road To Victory. His only finish has come inside the third round with a time of three minutes and 12 seconds.
In his professional MMA debut at Road To Victory 3, he faced Arthur Jacob and submitted him via brabo choke in the third round. The win secured Middleton the first submission victory of his professional career in addition to his first finish. He also picked up his first victory as a professional in the process. For his promotional debut with Cage Warriors at Cage Warriors 169 on March 30, Middleton will face Sean McCormac in an affair at middleweight. Other fighters that are set to debut at Cage Warriors 169 include Tommy Brunning and Mitchell Goode. Good luck Joe!
