Pretty cool news from Cage Contender this morning as they announced they will be hosting The Cage Contender Awards Night in February 2012. Ireland's number one promotion is giving a little something back. It's fair to say the Irish MMA scene has never been healthier - last week we had Celtic Gladiator and today alone we have Man of War II and Grapplepalooza an event which sees Ireland's elite grapplers compete for a big ass check and the title of "the best".
See below for the full release from Cage Contender. All we hope is that we get an invite :-p
