UFC signs Cage Warriors bantamweight champ Jack Shore

Cage Warriors bantamweight champion Jack Shore became the fourth Welshman to be signed by the UFC.

Shore now joins Jack Marshman, John Phillips and fellow bantamweight Brett Johns as Welsh fighters to feature on the UFC roster.

The 11-0 24-year-old of Abertilly made his first Cage Warriors title defence in April, submitting Scott Malone at Cage Warriors 104.

Shore won the vacant title against Mike Ekundayo by TKO last December.

The Welshman had previously stated he would like to defend his belt once more before he signed with the UFC.

There is currently no date set for Shore’s UFC debut.
