Cage Warriors have announced their long-awaited return to 3Arena on Saturday, April 29 2023.

A monumental welterweight title unification bout between champion Rhys McKee and interim champion Jim Wallhead will headline Cage Warriors’ long-awaited return. In what is sure to be one of the biggest and most important European MMA bouts of 2023, one man will leave Dublin as the undisputed 170lb CW champion. Rhys ‘Skeletor’ McKee (12-4-1) won the title in June 2022, after an all-out war with England’s Justin Burlinson, a bout recently voted ‘Fight of the Year’ by CW fans. The Ballymena man maintained his 100% finishing rate with the win, and will now be looking for his third consecutive victory in the famous yellow gloves following a stint in the UFC. Opposing McKee is UK MMA legend ‘Judo’ Jim Wallhead (33-11), who completed a fairy tale return to CW in 2022, capturing the interim title seventeen years removed from his professional debut with the promotion.
