In a statement released to MMA Fighting, Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan insisted that his promotion are vying to put on a big MMA event on French soil, which he believes could take place in the first half of 2020. He also expressed his delight to see the sport being legalized in France.
“The Cage Warriors team and I have been watching the MMA situation in France for some time. Cage Warriors, being Europe’s legitimate number one organization, known for creating some of the biggest names in the sport, has kept French fighters busy for over 10 years,” the statement read. “I am extremely happy that the sport is finally seeing the light in France and I believe the French Boxing Federation is a solid base to regulate and build our young sport in a country that is full of talent and I can tell you Cage Warriors is here to offer any help required.”
