Cage Warriors Heads to the Middle East

UK-based promotion Cage Warriors Fighting Championships heads to the Middle East for the first time. CWFC will present "Fight Night 1" from the Le Grand Hotel in Amman, Jordan on June 16.

This card is stacked with international talent. The CWFC Lightweight Title will be on the line in the main event as three-time UFC veteran and current CWFC champion Matt Veach will square off with rising Swedish fighter, Superior Challenge Lightweight Champion Reza Madadi.

Matt Veach looks to rebound from back-to-back losses in his last two outings, which includes a submission loss to long-time cage veteran Drew Fickett at MFC 28 in February.

Meanwhile, Reza Madadi seeks to extend his current six-bout win streak. The Iranian-born fighter won a controversial decision win over Rich Clementi at Superior Challenge 7 in April.

Also, in heavyweight action, two European prospects will face off. Englishman Jay Mortimore (6-1) will meet Andreas Kraniotakes (9-4) of Germany. Mortimore fights out of the competitive Lion's Den. Kraniotakes was featured in the 2010 EA MMA video game.

"Fight Night 1" marks the first time Cage Warriors leaves the UK since staging two back-to-back events in Orlando, Florida in 2008 and 2009.
