Big news for the promotion...
Cage Warriors Fighting Championship has announced a new terrestrial TV deal with Channel 4 in Britain. MMAjunkie reports that the agreement kicks off with Cage Warriors 70 on August 16th and will run through all 2014 shows.
Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan said, "We're delighted to have joined forces with a broadcaster of Channel 4's stature and flair. They like to have fun, and so do we. This is a really positive development for Cage Warriors, and for the growth of MMA in general in this part of the world, and I'm sure it will mark the beginning of a good relationship between CWFC and Channel 4."
The deal does not conflict with their live U.K. broadcast deal with Premier Sports; Channel 4 will air an hour-long midweek highlights show following every Cage Warrior show.
