French UFC veteran Samy Schiavo makes return

Over the course of 2012 European MMA promotion Cage Contender has become renowned for creating more comebacks than Elvis, names like Lister, Salaverry, Gugerty and Moore have been dusted off by the Irish brand and returned to the octagon for fans to savour. Now it looks like they will begin 2013 with more of the same!

Cage Contender 16 in Dublin, Ireland will see the return of popular French UFC veteran Samy Schiavo where he will face a yet unnamed opponent. Surprisingly to many Schiavo who is best known as a lightweight will fight in the 135lbs Bantamweight division in his return on February 23rd.

In his previous life at 155 Schiavo has shared the cage with top drawer opposition, a look down his fight record springs up the names of Jean Silva,Eiji Mitsuoka and of course Clay Guida making “The Dog” a tough challenge for whoever steps up to face him

“Samy joining the roster fits in perfectly with our recent expansion into the French language, as of October we now broadcast in the French language in around 40 or so countries with our partners on the CanalSat platform. In the ideal world I would like to see a home grown Irish fighter step up to the plate and take this one. It is a massive opportunity to get some top level competition on your CV. – John Ferguson, CEO
