Cage Warriors continues to sign former UFC fighters.
One of the European promotion’s last acquitions is Austrailian fighter Benny “Benny Blanco” Alloway, who was released from the UFC after back-to-back losses to Ryan LaFlare and Zak Cummings. Prior to his losses, he defeated Manuel Rodriguez in the first round via knockout back in December 2012.
Alloway was also a contestant on “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” where a team of U.K. fighters, led by Ross Pearson went up against a team of Australian competitors, led by George Sotiropoulos. Alloway’s fight with Brad Scott was voted “Fight of the Season” and earned a bonus of $25,000.
Alloway fought for Cage Warriors in 2012 at Cage Warriors Fight Night 3, defeating Mauro Chimento Jr by decision. He will return to the promotion with a record of 13-5.
There is no doubt that Alloway’s experience will help him when he returns to Cage Warriors. With a few wins under his belt, he could challenge for the Cage Warriors Welterweight championship.
If Alloway does rack up a couple of impressive victories and decides to not fight for Cage Warriors title, there is a chance he could get a call from the UFC and fight in the octagon.
