JOE teams up with leading MMA promoter Cage Warriors
JOE.ie is teaming up with the fast-growing Mixed Martial Arts promoters Cage Warriors to bring you exclusive Irish access to their talent-packed events.
MMA is the fastest growing sport on earth, and we here at JOE are huge fans of the athletes who put their necks and bodies on the line every time they step into The Octagon.
While the UFC continues to thrive in America and abroad, the Irish owned Cage Warriors has gone from strength-to-strength, attracting an extremely loyal fanbase as well as some of the top fighting talent on the planet. Cage Warriors has now hosted 54 events all over the world, and has 17 more planned in 2013 alone.
As well as having the likes of big name performers such as Michael Bisping and Dan Hardy fight for them, Cage Warriors also have a huge roster of extremely talented Irish fighters - including the likes of current Featherweight (145 lbs) and Lightweight (155 lbs) champion Conor McGregor, as well as the absolute beast that is Boston-born Cathal Pendred.
JOE will be offering exlusive pre and post-fight interviews as well as being the only place in Ireland where you can watch the bouts themselves.
Graham Boylan Cage Warriors CEO said:
"We're very pleased to be starting what I expect to be a hugely successful partnership with JOE.ie. Like Cage Warriors, it's a highly respected and popular brand and I know this deal will be beneficial to us both.
"JOE.ie has been doing a great job in giving MMA the kind of coverage it deserves and this partnership will only take that to the next level. We're providing a flawless stream of top-quality mixed martial arts to the readers of JOE.ie and I believe this will be a huge step in the right direction for the promotion of the sport in Ireland."
"Cage Warriors had a great year in 2012 but we've got a lot of big things in store for 2013. Starting with Cage Warriors 52 on March 9, you'll be able to see it all on JOE.ie, the only place to watch Cage Warriors Fighting Championship live and free of charge in Ireland."
"Cage Warriors & JOE shoulder to shoulder bringing Irish MMA & its future stars to the world."
We at JOE couldn't be prouder or more excited to work alongside this incredibly exciting organisation.
