When Cage Warriors announced plans to hold their 100th event before the end of the year, they promised to make it their biggest show to date. With just two months to go, they have announced that a number of their star names, including Paddy Pimblett, Jack Shore and Nicolas Dalby, will be fighting on the card and look set to make good on that promise.
Among the announcements, the promotion have confirmed that undefeated Welsh star Jack Shore (9-0-0) will be fighting for the Cage Warriors bantamweight title.
“I can’t thank the Welsh fans enough for the support they’ve shown me throughout my career, and now its time to finally bring the title home for them,” says Shore. “Cage Warriors in Cardiff was an unforgettable night and CW100 will top it. I’ll make sure of that.”
Another of Europe’s most talked-about young prospects is Paddy Pimblett (14-3-0), who will also appear at CW100. Pimblett has provided Cage Warriors fans with some of the craziest memories in the promotions 16-year history, and is ready to step up for their biggest night yet.
“Cage Warriors 100 is a historic night for European MMA and so they need the Baddy there,” said Pimblett. “The Welsh fans always show love so I can’t wait to put on a show for them. Like everyone already knows, I’m never in a boring fight.”
Also confirmed for the CW100 card is the return of UFC veteran and former Cage Warriors champ Nicolas Dalby (15-3-1), Northern Irish lightweight Joe McColgan (4-1-0) and a pair of Welsh fan favourites in the shape of Josh Reed (7-2-0) and Kris Edwards (12-10-0).
The night will also feature a title fight between the finalists of Cage Warriors’ featherweight title tournament, to be decided at CW98 this month. That’s at least two title fights confirmed for December 8th!
“I’m going to have to turn my phone off, because every fighter on the roster is calling me up wanting a piece of CW100,” said Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan. “I can promise fans a night like no other for this one. This event is for everyone who’s followed us on the Cage Warriors journey until now.”
