FIGHT NOW TV TM – America’s only 24-hour combat sports and entertainment channel – announced today that it will be the exclusive television home for all Cage Warriors Fighting Championships (CWFC) events held in 2012.
The first CWFC show of the year will take place in the Lebanese capital of Beirut tomorrow (Feb. 11) when ex-UFC lightweight Kyle Watson tackles Finnish 27-year-old Juha-Pekka Vainikainen in the Fight Night 3 main event. In addition this event will kick-off the CWFC 8-man welterweight tournament to crown its new CWFC champion.
“Cage Warriors Fighting Championships does an excellent job at putting on compelling match ups that feature some highly skilled MMA fighters from around the global,” said Mike Garrow, GM and co-founder of FIGHT NOW TV “We are excited to deliver this world-class MMA action to FIGHT NOW TV viewers.
With over 17 events coming in 2012 in such locations as Dublin, London, Kiev, Budapest and Dubai, Cage Warriors has become a prolific proving ground for some of MMA’s top fighters in the last 10 years. Most recently, Cork-based welterweight Jake Hecht was snapped up on a four-fight deal by the UFC following two impressive Cage Warriors victories in 2011.
Cage Warriors, owned by Cork native Graham Boylan, has expanded rapidly in recent months, with Boylan leading the organisation’s charge to the forefront of the sport in Europe since he assumed control in 2010.
Tomorrow night’s (Saturday Feb. 11) Cage Warrior event from Lebanon, Beirut will air live at 2 PM/ET with an encore airing Sunday, Feb. 12 at 10 PM/ET as part of the FIGHT NOW TV ‘Every Night a Different FIGHT” line- up.
FIGHT NOW TV is available on Cablevision channel 464 as part of the iO Sports & Entertainment Pak!
