The Cagewarriors Fighting Championships and Warriors Promotions return to Coventry with a superb end-of-

year finale, as all 9 company titles are on the line in a unique 'Night of Champions' on November 26th.


Coventry, England -- Cagewarriors unleash their biggest show to-date on November 26th, when they present

“Strike Force 4 - Night of Champions” at the Skydome Arena, Coventry. In keeping with previous Strike Force

shows, this event will have a theme to it and will see all 9 CWFC Titles up-for-grabs in a ground breaking

night for UK MMA.


The final card for this event has now been confirmed and is headed by the 135kg/298lbs British based

Brazilian, AntonioPezãoDe Silva Junior. Silva, from the Cagewarriors pro fight team the Wolfslair

Academy, will take on the five time KOTC vet Ruben "Warpath" Villarreal for the Vacant CWFC Super-

Heavyweight Title.



Antonio “Pezão” De Silva Junior


Antonio Silva Junior (3-0-0) made his cage fighting debut at Cagewarriors Strike Force 1 on May 21st, and

has quickly become one of the most talked about fighters in the UK MMA scene. His BJJ training combined

with his brutal ground and pound and striking skills have seen him bully his three previous opponents into

submission. Silva even captured the Cage Rage World Heavyweight Title when he made short work of the

UFC veteran Rafal "Earthquake" Carino in his third MMA fight back in July.

However, Silva faces a tougher test this time round against Ruben "Warpath" Villarreal, who not only has

eight TKO wins on his record, but is also known for being an aggressive attribute based powerhouse. This

experienced MMA warrior has fought numerous UFC veterans such as AndreThe Chief Roberts, Bobby

Hoffman, Dan Severn, Travis Wiuff and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Ricco Rodriguez. Villarreal

has also given up the chance to enjoy Thanksgiving and has instead decided to fly out to England for this

bout, and come home as Champion.


Also featured on the card is the three time UFC veteran Jeff "The Snowman" Monson, as he defends his

CWFC Heavyweight Title against the Frenchman Emmanuel Marc. Monson won the CWFC by ending the

11 fight win streak of the former Greco-Roman World Champion Tengiz Tedoradze last December. Monson

will be looking to repeat that sublime performance when he makes his second defense of his CWFC title

against Emmanuel Marc. The Frenchman stunned the Skydome faithful back in May, when he knocked out

local hero Barrington Patterson in the main event of Strike Force 1 in front of nearly 300 screaming fans.


There are also several top domestic clashes at Strike Force 4, which sees the undefeated British sensation

Michael "The Count" Bisping (9-0) defending his light-Heavyweight Title against the UKMMAC

Heavyweight Champion Ross "The Gladiator" Pointon.


Michael Bisping


Bisping is coming off a tremendous first round win over the highly regarded JakobStriking Viking

Lovstad, and will be looking to impress foreign talent scouts with another emphatic win in Coventry.

However, Pointon has impressed in training due to a brand new training camp and will look to end a

disappointing 2005 on a high with a win over “The Count.”


The other all-British title encounter promises to be an explosive affair as DanThe OutlawHardy from the

Rough House Gym in Nottingham, battles the rangy 6ft 4in, KOTC UK veteran Matt12 GaugeThorpe for

the Vacant CWFC Welterweight Title. Both men are accomplished strikers whose fans have been engaging

in an internet war of words since this bout was announced. Hardy’ popularity has skyrocketed this year due

to his numerous high-profile bouts against top European contenders and should have the edge in form and in

experience. However Thorpe has a huge height advantage over Hardy and possesses an impressive grappling

and striking game too, which could nullify the unorthodox but effective striking skills of Hardy.


Also featuring in this extraordinary event are Martin "Hitman" Kampmann (Denmark), Damien Riccio

(France), the EVT GP winner Thomas Hytten (Team Frontline, Norway), the CWFC Featherweight

Champion Danny Batten and the Brazilians Augusto Frota and CWFC Lightweight Champion Alexandre



The winners of the “Night of Champions” will walk away with the newly designed CWFC Title, which has been

designed by the esteemed trophymaker Thomas Fattorini Ltd. (They are famous for designing the coveted

Lonsdale belt, which is the British Boxing Title belt) This will no doubt increase the tension at the superb

Skydome Arena on November 26th, when these modern day warriors battle it out inside the 32ft CWFC

Octagon in pursuit of gold and glory.
