Cage Warriors

Cage Warriors is one of the biggest promotions in Europe, notable for being a hotbed for future UFC talent. Fighters such as Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Dan Hardy have all entered the big show from the CW ranks.

Below are divisional rankings for the promotion generated by the MMA-Prospects team, led by contributors Gary Friel and Ryan Fortune.

These rankings were and are compiled and maintained in the spirit of meritocracy. Fighters are graded on their standing within the promotion and recent outings, with an emphasis on the standing and quality of their opposition and their in-cage performances.

Head-to-head fight results are weighted heavily.

These rankings are current as of December 07, 2020, and will be updated as Cage Warriors continues to promote events, sign new fighters, and remove fighters from the roster.
