Cage Warriors 115 has added an exciting clash between two up-and-coming fighters.
Welshman Ben Ellis is taking on Kingsley Crawford in a 145-pound clash at the second of the three events Cage Warriors announced for its September return. A person with knowledge of the situation informed Sherdog about the matchup, which was then confirmed by a promotion official.
Ellis (2-0) is arguably one of the most promising young talents fighting out of Wales at the moment. He made his pro debut last year after a brilliant amateur career that ended with a record of 7-0. So far, all his fights have ended in the opening stanza, as he trashed both Brad Evans and Rafael Skouras at CW 104 and CW 108, respectively.
Crawford (5-2) is currently riding a two-bout streak after he steamrolled Scott Butters at CW 111 before submitting Lewis Monarch via triangle choke at CW 113. So far, "The Silent Assassin" has gathered a professional record of 3-2 under the CW banner.
CW 115 will go down behind closed doors at the BEC Arena in Manchester on Sept. 25. On the same night, middleweight champion Nathias Frederick (8-2) will attempt the first defense of his title against Jamie Richardson (9-5). Plus, UFC vet Craig White is taking on James Webb in a middleweight affair.
