Mason Jones, a two-division champion with Cage Warriors, is head to the UFC.
The European promotion’s lightweight and welterweight ruler announced the news in an Instagram post. A date for Jones’ promotional debut is currently unknown.
“Friday, Oct. 9 I signed a [four] fight contract with [UFC] the biggest [and] best mma organization in the world,” Jones wrote. “The moment when my dream became a reality.”
In his most recent bout, Jones claimed the vacant 170-pound belt with a first-round stoppage of Adam Proctor at Cage Warriors 116. One fight prior, the 25-year-old Welshman claimed lightweight gold with a technical knockout of Joe McColgan at Cage Warriors 113.
Jones is 10-0 thus far as a professional, with all but one of those triumphs coming under the Cage Warriors banner.
