Officials today confirmed the plans with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). As of now, the agreement calls for just the one Cage Warriors appearance.
Cage Warriors 57 takes place July 20 at Echo Arena in Liverpool, which will host its first show since “Cage Warriors 21: Enter the Wolfslair” in 2006. The main card airs on MMAjunkie.com following prelims on Facebook.
“I’m looking forward to a fantastic main event in Liverpool on July 20, and I’d like to thank Bellator for their cooperation in allowing Paul Daley to compete for Cage Warriors,” stated Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan, whose company also recently bought out Ronnie Mann‘s Bellator contract.
Daley, an English fighter, is on a 5-1 run that includes stints with Strikeforce and current home Bellator. The former UFC fighter fights for Cage Warriors for the first time since 2008, when he knocked out Bojan Kosednar. It’s one of the 23 knockouts he’s registered in 32 career wins.
Chlewicki, meanwhile, is a Polish fighter who makes his promotional debut. After suffering just his second loss (to UFC contender Demian Maia), he took a five-year break from the sport beginning in 2005. However, since his return, he’s posted a 5-0-1 record that included an April knockout of Michal Kozmer (8-3 at the time) in his home country.
