SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Cage Warriors – Europe's Leading MMA Organization – has revealed the initial batch of fighters for the first show of their 2023 world tour.

In addition, CW is proud to announce a four-event partnership with Sycuan Casino Resort, which will see the illustrious venue become the exclusive US home of Cage Warriors in 2023.

Following CW 149 on March 3, the promotion will return to Sycuan on June 2, September 8 and December 15.

Topping the list of athletes preparing to don the famous yellow gloves on March 3 is former UFC flyweight title challenger Wilson Reis (26-12).

The grappling phenom is currently on a two-fight winning streak with CW, most recently earning a hard-fought points victory over Tuomas Gronvall at CW 148 on New Year's Eve.

Also, returning after a dramatic win on New Year's Eve is former NCAA Division 1 wrestler Chasen 'Paper' Blair (3-1).

A training partner of UFC sensation Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett, Blair is coming off a blistering 12-second KO victory in his previous bout and is ready to put on a show on home turf.

Folsom, California's Jordan Bailey (8-5) lost out to UFC veteran Max Rohskopf on his CW debut, before righting the ship with back-to-back submission victories, including a career-best win over Bellator veteran JJ Ambrose last September.

Fresh from representing Team USA at CW 148, crowd favorite Damon 'The Nomad' Wilson (5-1) will be seeking to bounce back from his first professional defeat.

Roberto Hernandez (5-1) will be looking for his third consecutive CW win, while local fighters Elijah Harris (4-2), Jamey Lynch (5-3) and Bill Wilson (1-1) will also feature on the bill.

"This year, we'll be joining force with Sycuan Casino Resort, making them the official US home of Cage Warriors in 2023," said CW President Graham Boylan. "It's a partnership that will give fight-fans an unrivalled fight-week experience."

"We intend to kick-off the world tour in style, with an incredible venue and a fight card to match. Cage Warriors is at the forefront of So-Cal MMA, and you're going to see exactly why on March 3rd!"

"We are thrilled to be the exclusive US partner of Cage Warriors in 2023," said Rob Cinelli, general manager at Sycuan Casino Resort. "San Diego is a hotspot for mixed martial arts, as there is a large fighting community, world-class gyms and many combat sports enthusiasts who call San Diego home. We are excited to bring four action-packed events to Sycuan, so dedicated fans and those newly introduced to combat sports can come and experience this massively entertaining sport first-hand."

Cage Warriors 149 takes place at Sycuan Resort Casino on March 3, 2023.

Tickets are available via CageWarriors.com, with the entire event streaming live on UFC Fight Pass and international broadcast partners.
