Denmark’s Mads Burnell to make Cage Warriors debut at CW99


Cage Warriors are continuing to add to their upcoming cards with one of the most recent announcements being that UFC veteran Mads Burnell (9-3) will make his promotional debut at Cage Warriors 99. The Danish fighter will take on Lukasz Rajewski (8-3) in a featherweight bout on November 17 in Colchester, England.

Burnell was extremely unlucky to be cut from the UFC after going 1-2, his last bout saw him dominate the majority of his bout with Arnold Allen, before getting caught in a front choke which forced the tap. Prior to that, he took home a win over Mike Santiago in his second outing in the UFC.

Burnell’s opponent, Rajewski is a highly renowned fighter on the regional scene. Mostly known for his bouts in KSW, his last outing for KSW saw him lock in a heel hook under two minutes into the first round forcing his opponent to tap. The Polish fighter is a dangerous striker with four of his wins coming by way of KO/TKO.

This highly anticipated matchup will see both men make their promotional debut. With the Cage Warriors featherweight strap finally getting a new holder at Cage Warriors 100, this is a great opportunity for either fighter to get themselves in contention for a title shot.
