London, England – Cage Warriors are continuing their mission to showcase the very best in European fighting talent by stacking their CW95 card even further, to include two of the most talked-about names on the European scene. 

After going undefeated as an amateur, Ed Arthur burst into the bantamweight rankings in July 2013 and embarked on a 6-fight win streak which included 2 TKOs and 3 submissions, with a victory over ex-Cage Warriors champion and now UFC prospect Nathaniel Wood. Arthur has traveled across Europe bringing home wins for England against some of the toughest opposition around and now returns home to debut with Cage Warriors and take on the incredibly dangerous and still unbeaten Mike Ekundayo

Ekundayo, a teammate of Nathaniel Wood under the tutelage of UK MMA legend and UFC veteran Brad Pickett, has never tasted defeat in either his amateur or pro career. Of his 6 wins, only one has gone to a decision, and his most recent victory over Tom Mearns ended in one of the most brutal stoppages of 2018 so far. Ekundayo’s strength and versatility seem’s to be at a career high.

“I’ve always had my eyes set on fighting with Cage Warriors and putting on those yellow gloves,” says Ekundayo. To do it at the O2 Arena which is a place that feels like home is a perfect match for me.”

Also announced for CW95’s huge 5th-anniversary card is a headline slot for Karl Moore in the first defense of his light heavyweight title, and a welterweight matchup between Scotland’s Ross Houston and 19-fight veteran Nathan Jones along with a host of other bouts below.
