Cage Warriors kicks off September with Cage Warriors 96 live on UFC Fight Pass Saturday, Sept. 1. The event will feature two title fights, including an appearance from top European prospect Paddy Pimblett, who is going for his second Cage Warriors title. Pimblett squares off against Soren Bak in the main event for the vacant lightweight belt.
Pimblett previously held the Cage Warriors featherweight title and received an offer from the UFC, but he turned it down in order to earn more money under the Cage Warriors banner. If he wins a second strap on Saturday, we will have to see if the UFC once again comes calling.
“Because I’m so young, people forget I’ve been doing this a long time, but at 23, I’m going to be a two-weight world champion,” the Pimblett said. “I’m not in a rush to do anything. After this fight, I’ll have achieved what I set out to do, so we’ll see what happens, if the UFC come in with that offer,” he said via MMAjunkie.com.
“I don’t like to think I’m up my own ass, but I know what I’m worth. When I get signed, I’m expecting to be on a main card. There’s not going to be no undercard. I’m not expecting an easy fight when I get in the UFC.”
In the co-main event, Jonas Billstein and Mick Stanton go head-to-head for the vacant middleweight title.
