Cage Warriors has unveiled its full schedule for the second half of the year, with the promotion set to hold 10 events over the course of six months to round out a packed year in 2023.

Their Q2 schedule kicks off with Cage Warriors 156 in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, July 1, then heads to London for Cage Warriors 157 at the Indigo at The O2 on Friday, July 21, the night before the UFC Fight Night event at the main O2 Arena the following day.

The promotion then heads to Rome on July 29 before heading across the pond to San Diego for Cage Warriors 159 on September 8 before returning to the UK for a show in Manchester on September 29.

Dublin will play host to Cage Warriors 161 at the RDS on Saturday, October 14, before the promotion heads to Rome for Cage Warriors 162 two weeks later.

November events in London and Newcastle round out the promotion’s UK schedule, with a final event in San Diego on December 15 set to close the promotion’s 2023 calendar.

“We have a roster made up of hundreds of athletes on both sides of the Atlantic. Our top priorities are keeping them active and putting on as many high-quality events as possible for our fans,” said Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan.

“As such, we’ve adjusted our schedule to bring forward our return to Dublin with a history-making first MMA event at the RDS, and we’re also taking the Cage Warriors experience back to Newcastle for the first time in nine years.

“We’re committed to giving our athletes the platform to showcase their skills to a global audience, and with these dates added to a schedule that already includes events in London, Manchester, Rome, and San Diego, there’s never been a better time for fighters or fans to be part of ‘The Draft’ of MMA!”
