“FightZone has been building the sport of MMA at a grass roots level for some time now and all their hard work has moved them into over 20 million US homes multiple times weekly.

This is the first time the CWC brand has given their live event to a TV network in the USA and we could not be happier.

The CWC brand is now one of the leading native European Cage MMA events and continues to grow the sport of MMA throughout the UK and Europe.

Having FightZone as our US partner is the perfect way to continue our quest to deliver quality European MMA product to the fans in the US. This is a historical day for European MMA and all the young talent that has yet to be seen in America. CWC puts the sport first, and that is why we fit well with FightZone. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with FightZone TV.”

Every since my partner, FightZone Co-Owner and Commentator Extraordinaire, Jay Adams and I started this venture in 2007, we have been fortunate enough to work with some of the finest regional MMA promoters in the country and their consistency in always delivering a superior product is a big part of our success and the demand for our broadcasts. Adding CWC to our growing family of MMA partners Library such as RFC, UWC, XFA, WFC, Mainstream. CFC, RCC, Pure Combat and many others will only strengthen our new goal of bringing the Best MMA fights and Interviews from around the World to our audience. Plus we're looking forward to Jay learning another language – English. Fresh off of the incredible exposure of hosting 3 straight events streamed live on Sherdog to hundreds of thousands of Internet viewers, he can't wait to work the next live Cage Wars Event being planned in Spain this summer. “
