Cage Warriors Fighting Championship have added six new fighters to their roster. The newly signed U.K. and Irish talent will compete exclusively under the organisation’s banner.
The six fighters signed include Paul Redmond, Dave Hill, Tommy Maguire, Davey Grant, Alex Enlund and Chris Scott. Cage Warrior officials recently announced the new signings via official press release.
Here is what Cage Warriors CEO, Graham Boylan, had to say:
“We increased our roster of exclusive fighters significantly in 2012 but we’ll continue to do the same this year. I’m very happy that we’ll have even more fighters of the calibre of these six guys competing for Cage Warriors in the near future,”
Paul Redmond is currently riding a three fight winning streak, defeating notable fighters such as Yuri Malko, Lewis Long and Ryan Roddy during 2012. He will no doubt look to continue his winning streak into 2013.
Dave Hill last fought at CWFC 47 in June, where he dropped a second round submission loss to Conor McGregor. He will look to bounce back with a win in his next outing.
Tommy Maguire will make his CWFC debut this year following an eventful 2012. The younger brother of UFC welterweight John Maguire, Tommy is on a run of five wins in his last six outings.
“At Cage Warriors we only offer exclusive contracts to fighters who we believe have all the tools to go far in this sport, and that’s certainly the case with these new signings. They’re all extremely talented guys and, just as importantly, they have the right attitude too.” – Graham Boylan.
26-year-old Davey Grant will make his CWFC debut in 2013. Last year he picked up the “Shock’n’Awe” 135lbs title and is considered to be one of the top bantamweights in the U.K.
Alex Enlund debuted for the promotion in December at CWFC 50, where he scored a first round TKO victory over Ahsan Gilani. He now has the chance to build off that win and hit 2013 running.
Lastly, Chris Scott is currently riding and impressive five fight winning streak, most recently defeating Kristian Lexell via second round submission at Vision FC 4 in September 2012. He will no doubt look to extend his winning streak to six in his CWFC debut.
