Simeon Thoresen has signed an exclusive deal with Cage Warriors Fighting Championship. The former UFC fighter from Norway is another recent signing from the Nordics as Cage Warriors has been set on building their Scandinavian roster. The promotion recently announced its first local card which will take place in Denmark. Read the press release from the promotion released today.
Simeon Thoresen is the latest addition to the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship roster.
Thoresen (17-4-1) has signed a five-fight deal, which will see him compete exclusively for CWFC over a minimum period of 18 months.
The Norwegian welterweight, who previously fought under the CWFC banner in 2008, joins the promotion following a three-fight stint with the UFC.
Having submitted Besam Yousef in his UFC debut in April 2012, Thoresen will be eager to returning to winning ways with Cage Warriors following losses to Seth Baczynski and David Mitchell.
A submission specialist, Thoresen has taken all but one of his 17 professional wins inside the distance, 15 of which have come by way of tap-out.
The 29-year-old holds other notable wins over the likes of Fabricio Nascimento and current CWFC star and fellow UFC veteran John Maguire.
He said: “Cage Warriors is a great organisation, very professionally run, and I’m excited to be a part of it. I’m really excited about fighting again in 2014
