Ed Arthur vs Mike Ekundayo added to Cage Warriors 95 in London

Cage Warriors has today announced a bantamweight bout pitting Ed Arthur vs Mike Ekundayo has been added to the upcoming Cage Warriors 95 card.

Cage Warriors 95 will be held on Saturday, July 21st, 2018 at the Indigo at the O2, London.

“We’re delighted to welcome two more of the most legitimate contenders in Europe to the Cage Warriors bantamweight division, which is on fire right now,” says CW President Graham Boylan. “We’ve been watching these two closely and decided that London was the perfect place for them to meet – a hometown event and a massive fight for our U.K fans.”

After going undefeated as an amateur, Ed Arthur burst into the bantamweight rankings in July 2013 and embarked on a 6-fight win streak which included 2 TKOs and 3 submissions, with a victory over ex- Cage Warriors champion and now UFC prospect Nathaniel Wood. Arthur has travelled across Europe bringing home wins for England against some of the toughest opposition around, and now returns home to debut with Cage Warriors and take on the incredibly dangerous and still unbeaten Mike Ekundayo.

Ekundayo, a teammate of Nathaniel Wood under the tutelage of UK MMA legend and UFC veteran Brad Pickett, has never tasted defeat in either his amateur or pro career. Of his 6 wins only one has gone to a decision, and his most recent victory over Tom Mearns ended in one of the most brutal stoppages of 2018 so far. Ekundayo’s strength and versatility seems to be at a career high.

“I’ve always had my eyes set on fighting with Cage Warriors and putting on those yellow gloves,” says Ekundayo. “To do it at the O2 Arena which is a place that feels like home is a perfect match for me.”

With this news, Cage Warriors 95 now looks like this:

Nathan Jones vs. Ross Houston – Welterweight

Ed Arthur vs Mike Ekundayo – Bantamweight

Paull McBain vs. Steve Aimable – Featherweight

Jamie Richardson vs. Phil Wells – Welterweight

Scott Malone vs. Darren O’Gorman – Bantamweight

Pelu Adetola vs. James Webb – Middleweight
