Cage Rage is producing quite a bit of UFC news this week. The most recent news surrounds current CRC lightweight champion Abdul Mohamed (12-4-2 MMA). According to a report on the Cage Rage website, Mohamed has declined a contract to come to the UFC.
After declining the contract Mohamed is now set to face former UFC fighter Ross Pointon on April 21st at Cage Rage 21: Independence Day. The Cage Rage event and UFC 70 are both set for April 21st in England.
Mohamed has been the British CRC champion since Cage Rage 13 in late 2005. He has a successful record in MMA and is likely one of the biggest UFC prospects from the popular British MMA promotion. Other notable Cage Rage veterans include UFC fighters Michael Bisping, Chris Lytle, Anderson Silva, and Travis Lutter.
