Warrior Fight Series comes to the home of combat sports in London; The York Hall. March 20, 2015
LONDON, ENGLAND – Warrior Fight Series (WFS) have today revealed that their next show on May 23rd will be coming to the home of combat sports in the East End of London, the York Hall.
The infamous 1200 capacity venue has played host to some of the greatest boxers in British history, such as Lennox Lewis, Joe Calzaghe, Michael Watson, Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank and Carl Froch, since it’s opening in 1929.
The York Hall is renowned for bringing a great atmosphere for boxing and has not featured MMA for many, many years. It is with great pleasure that WFS 3 will be able to showcase what mixed martial arts is about at the most iconic fight venue London has to offer.
Warrior Fight Series will be hosting their third show since their insertion onto the domestic UK MMA scene in June of 2014. After the runaway success of the first and second, they are back and moving on to bigger things with the announcement of not only a new venue with a larger capacity, but some awesome fights to match including many top ranked fighters.

Matt Robinson brings a record of 5-4 and in his last fight he stopped Matt Holland via Triangle Choke to take his win streak to 2. He fights out of Pound 4 Pound gym and all but one of his wins have come by way of submission.
Nathan Jones fights out of Combat Company and Team Titan, bringing a record of 7-4. In his last fight he defeated Oliver Sines via TKO, which took his win streak to 3. All but one of his wins have also come by way of submission so we can expect a very close fight on the ground.
