Cage Warriors LogoBritish fight promotion Cage Warriors Fighting Championship recently announced that it his inked a new television deal with Premier Sports in the U.K.

The deal means Cage Warriors will be available on a free-to-view and delayed basis on the channel following each of the eight events it has planned for the rest of 2011. Cage Warriors 41, which will be held on April 24, will become the first event to be broadcast free-to-view on Premier Sports that operates on the Sky platform, channel 433. Live streaming will continue to be available free through the Cage Warriors website.

This announcement follows the successful broadcast and worldwide live streaming of the Cage Warriors 40 show on the Cage Warriors website.  That event comprised of six televised CWFC bouts, which included a successful CWFC bantamweight title defense by Paul McVeigh. The show was headlined by a women’s super-flyweight showdown between Bellator, EliteXC, and BodogFIGHT veteran Rosi Sexton and Japan-based American Strikeforce veteran Roxanne Modafferi.

“This is a great partnership for Cage Warriors Fighting Championship and a great opportunity for fighters worldwide to get the exposure they deserve as professional athletes,” commented Cage Warriors Director Graham Boylan. “The fighters put so much time and effort into this sport they deserve this exposure. I’m very excited for them.”

Premier Sports operates on the Sky platform, channel 433 and features NRL, NASCAR, South American Football and regular boxing from around the world.
