Cage Warriors Fighting Championship (CWFC) announces its acquisition of Welsh MMA promotion Pain Pit Fight Night. With immediate effect, Pain Pit will now fight under the CWFC banner.
Richard Shore, a driving force in Welsh MMA and founding director of Pain Pit will remain in charge of Pain Pit’s Amateur shows and will head the Cage Warriors shows taking place in Wales under CWFC President Graham Boylan.
The second CWFC of the year is scheduled for Saturday June 4th and it will take place at the Newport Centre, Newport, South Wales showcasing the very best of Welsh MMA.
The main card will be broadcast live around the world and will feature established CWFC and Pain Pit veterans alongside a new generation of MMA talent, all eager to prove their credentials to a world-wide audience.
“This partnership will provide a global stage for Welsh MMA and also help us establish a new level of high quality production synonymous with Cage Warriors,” says Richard Shore.
Shore continues, “We’ve yet to see a Welsh fighter in the UFC and so we’re hoping this will change in the next 18months. We’re confident that the boost Cage Warriors gave to Irish MMA will have the same effect in Wales.”
Graham Boylan, President comments, “Our goals are simple at Cage Warriors; we want to work with the best talent, put on the most exciting fights while offering fight fans the best value for money. Richard and his fighters are the very best in Wales and we’re excited at the prospect of putting them on the world MMA stage.”
Fighters who earn a chance to fight for the Pain Pit Amateur Titles will be given an opportunity to fight for the Pain Pit Titles on the undercard of the Cage Warriors shows held in Wales.
