The man responsible for this spectacular KO has signed with the UFC

Two undefeated Cage Warriors stars have been snapped up.

THE UFC HAS added two new welterweights to its roster by signing undefeated former Cage Warriors stars Nicolas Dalby and Tom Breese to multi-fight deals.

Reports circulated on social media this evening and the UFC’s capture of the pair has since been confirmed by The42 with both fighters’ camps.

Dalby, a 30-year-old Dane, has a 13-0 record and succeeded Cathal Pendred as the Cage Warriors welterweight champion last year.

He’s likely to have been on the UFC’s radar since clinching the vacant CWFC title with this spectacular fourth-round KO of Sergei Churilov in March 2014.

Fellow 170lbs fighter Tom Breese (7-0) is also UFC-bound. The 23-year-old Englishman is a training partner of Joseph Duffy’s at Tristar and was scheduled to face SBG Ireland’s Philip Mulpeter last November until the Irishman was forced to withdraw due to injury.

“The sky is the limit with Tom Breese and I really mean that,” Tristar coach Eric O’Keefe told The42. “He doesn’t look out of place with the best guys in the world right now. I expect huge things for Tom.”
