Tengiz vs Monson in my mind is a UFC eliminator, with both men beign in great form through 2004. Tengiz ended the unbeaten streak of James Thompson with awesome display of ground and pound and is on a 2 year unbeaten streak himself with 12 straight wins.

Paul Daley is looking for a fight after spending a month at ATT HQ with his team mate Dan Hardy. Fresh off a win over Jess Liaudin on Saturday, Daley is looking to make it 11 straight wins in MMA/kickboxing action since Dec 03. Daley's original opponent Abdul Mohamed pulled out due to cuts he sustained at Cage Rage 9 on Saturday.

Shooto Japan vet Gesias “JZ” Calvancanti looks to make it 2 wins in 2 months when he takes on Ollie ELlis who is unbeaten in Cagewarriors action, and took Jean Silva to a draw at Cage Rage 7 in July (in a fight many people thought Ellis won.)

This is a stacked UK card, with 4 top title matchs, 2 international superfights and 2 domestic clashes, This card will wrap up a great 2004 in style for UK MMA and for Cagewarriors for latest Cagewarriors 9 updates

Predictions thread

ttt for the end of year show

3 Americans featuring
Jeff Monson
Gesias “JZ” Calvancanti
Gerald Strebendt

2 French stars, an Irishman and some top Uk talent


TTT for Cagewarriors

cant wait for this show, its gonna rock, and no doubt will be entertaining with guys like tengiz,gerald,roache and semtex on the card!!!

great line-up

ttt for Gerald shuting Roche up

And I hope Gesias starts giving away the many free trips he must be earning for his air miles points. In 2004 he has fought in the US (3 times), Switzerland, Japan, and now England.

We have been working real hard this weekend to finalise the card and hope to have to 100% confirmed very soon. Paul Daley is on a long unbeaten run and is quickly becoming one of Europe's top young fighters.

Many Fernandez has a great record, BJJ black belt and is 5-0 with 4 wins in 1 round all by triangle. No one has taken him past round 1 at a Cagewarriors event. Hopefully he will get another big name to take on

TTT Again


This is an awesome card, despite being once again plagued by injuries and pullouts the CageWarriors team have managed to put together some great matches
