[Fight Week!] Cage Warriors 83: Full fight card and preview for Newport event

Cage Warriors returns this weekend for Cage Warriors 83 which takes place at the Newport Centre in Newport, Wales.

The main event will feature a battle between two of the UK’s premier welterweights as Che Mills goes head to head with Lewis Long.

Long most recently won the M4TC welterweight title, defeating Ryan Scope via submission at M4TC 23: Carnage whilst Mills is looking to stop a two-fight losing streak, dropping his last two bouts to Jack Marshman and Matt Inman.

Cage Warriors’ return to Wales will feature a host of Welsh talent, plus the debut of highly-rated Danish lightweight star Søren Bak.

Bak (7-1) will take on veteran Scott ‘The Priest’ Clist (11-3) in a tough test on his maiden outing under the Cage Warriors banner.

And he’ll be joined on the card by popular Welsh prospect Josh ‘Crazy Horse’ Reed.

The Tillery Combat trained bantamweight has made a perfect start to life as a professional, racking up six wins without defeat, including back-to-back victories in Cage Warriors contests. He’ll take on the Irishman Gavin Kelly who makes his fourth CW appearance in Newport.

Also scheduled for action is former welterweight title challenger Mohsen Bahari. The Norwegian takes on rising Italian prospect Giovanni Melillo, who arrives in Cage Warriors with a 6-1 career record, with five finishes. Melillo’s only defeat came to the current Cage Warriors 170lb champion, Karl Amoussou.

And a teammate of Amoussou’s, fellow Frenchman Konmon Deh (9-3) will look to follow up on his impressive stoppage win at Cage Warriors 82 when he lined up against local favourite Jack ‘The Tank’ Shore.

Shore racked up a perfect 12-0 amateur record before turning pro, and has impressed with four stoppage victories in his four professional contests to date, while Deh has won each of his six career bouts in the UK and is riding a six-fight win streak.
