Trio of fighters join CWFC ranks
CAGE Warriors Fighting Championship has added English-based trio Valentino Petrescu (pictured), Spencer Hewitt and Chad Griffiths to its roster.
All three have put pen to paper on five-fight deals, committing them exclusively to the organisation for the next 18 months.
Petrescu (12-3), one of the UK’s top 15 middleweights, featured as a welterweight on ‘The Smashes’ series of The Ultimate Fighter last year.
The 32-year-old has picked up seven of his 12 wins via first-round stoppage, with his only losses coming at the hands of highly-regarded opposition in Jimi Manuwa, Beslan Isaev and Lee Chadwick.
Hewitt (10-5), a BJJ black belt, is currently 14th in the UK’s bantamweight rankings but has also fought at flyweight.
The 34-year-old submission specialist, who has taken nine of his 10 victories via stoppage in the first round, holds notable wins over Cory Tait and CWFC veteran Ben Hajir.
Griffiths (4-0), an unbeaten prospect who’s set for a move down to featherweight, has taken all of his wins to date by stoppage, finishing three of his four opponents inside the first round.
