One of the best European fighting promotions are in talks with the UFC, finalizing a deal that would air all Cage Warriors events on UFC Fight Pass.

Sources told MMA Mad that both promotions are putting the last touches on a deal that would give the UFC the rights to all future events under the promotion. Numerous fighters who have fought in the European circuit have at one time or another fought under the Cage Warriors promotions. Fighters such as champions Conor Mcgregor and Joanna Jedrzejczyk, as well as fighters who have been apart of the UFC roster like Michael Bisping, Stevie Ray, Phil Harris, Joanne Calderwood and Neil Seery.

Others includeWilson Reis, Davey Grant, Taylor Lapilus, Robert Whiteford, Jim Alers, Artem Lobov, Arnold Allen, Piotr Hallman, Paul Redmond, Leonardo Santos, Joseph Duffy, Tom Breese, Paul Daley, Nicholas Dalby, Danny Mitchell, Cathal Pendred, Scott Askham, Che Mills, and Aisling Daly.

This deal would open up a ton of talent for the UFC and add a lot more depth to the promotions roster.
The UFC would add Cage Warriors to the many other promotions that are owned by the UFC that are on UFC Fight pass, with promotions like Invicta Fighting Championship, Shooto, Pancrase, and Victory FC.
