Lightweight grappling ace Max Rohskopf is all set for his third Cage Warriors appearance, with the American set to return to the cage in San Diego.

Rohskopf will take on Erick Sanchez at Cage Warriors 133, which takes place on March 4 at Del Mar Arena.

Rohskopf finished Jeff Creighton via TKO on his Cage Warriors debut at Cage Warriors 126, then followed up with a dominant performance as he outpointed Jordan Bailey at Cage Warriors 130.

He takes on Sanchez, a Team Alpha Male product who has finished six of his 10 victories inside the distance.

Ahead of the event, Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan said, “It’s great to have Max fighting with us again.

“He has shown himself to be an animal in that cage, but now it’s time to see whether Sanchez can tame the beast.

“I’m looking forward to this one. We’ve seen some great lightweight fights in Cage Warriors over the years, and here is another.”

Rohskopf said, “I really don’t know much about my opponent.

“My coach and manager said we have a fight so it’s that simple, we have a fight.

“My fans can expect a dominant performance and my haters can expect a dominant performance.

“Thank you Cage Warriors for working so hard to get me a fight.”

Sanchez said, “Stylistically it’s a good match up!

“Fighting on Cage Warriors is a great opportunity and I’m excited to perform.

“Everyone watching can expect an entertaining fight from the beginning till the end!”
