bola-omoyele.jpgCage Warriors continues to sign some of Europe’s top welterweight fighters with the addition of Bola Omoyele (6-1).

The U.K.-based promotion has signed the British fighter to an exclusive deal, sources close to the promotion on Friday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Omoyele’s first bout with the promotion is not yet known. Cage Warriors returns Saturday with Cage Warriors Fight Night 8 in United Arab Emirates, then has shows announced for June 1 in Dublin and July 20 in Livperpool, England.

Omoyele was one of four U.K. welterweights on the UFC’s second international edition of “The Ultimate Fighter,” which featured competitors from Australia and the U.K. against each other. The season filmed and aired this past fall.

In the season’s fifth episode, Omoyele was stopped by Manny Rodriguez with a first-round north-south choke.

Omoyele, whose training includes American Top Team, has won five straight fights with four by TKO and another by submission due to strikes. All six of his wins are by stoppage from strikes.

The 31-year-old hasn’t fought in more than a year. In April 2012, he stopped Warren Kee in the first round at Ultimate Challenge MMA 27's co-main event in his native London. All six of his wins have come under the UCMMA banner.

Omoyele’s lone loss came by second-round TKO more than three years ago to Carl Noon in his second pro fight.
