The UFC, WEC and Strikefore veteran famously know for the Von Flue Choke will face Cage Contender crowd favourite Conor “Da Crook” Cooke when the promotion returns to Belfast on 26th April.

Cooke is coming off impressive Cage Contender wins against Sweden’s Martin Wojcik and that famous head kick knockout over UFC/TUF fighter Ross Pointon.

“Fans will not want to miss this! This is the biggest fight of Conor Cooke’s career so far, no if’s, no buts! We expect a massive turn out for Conor and lets be fair, he deserves this fight. He has earned it. The way he finished Ross Pointon was special then another great outing against Wojcik. A win here for Cooke could open all sorts of doors.

But lets not forget that Von Flue is a proper fighter with top level experience on the worlds largest stages. He has shared the cage with names like Joe Riggs, Jorge Gurgel and Chun Le. Yes OK he has been out of competitive action for a while but this is the first of a 3 fight deal with us so he will be out to prove a point.” – John Ferguson, CEO Cage Contender
