BREAKING: Decky McAleenan vs Adam Ventre scheduled for Cage Warriors 115

A lightweight fight between Decky McAleenan (6-3) and Adam Ventre (8-4) is scheduled for Cage Warriors 115 on Friday 25th September, the second card of the promotion’s “THE TRILOGY” series. Sources confirmed that contracts have been signed by both parties to Severe MMA.

A former Akuma FC featherweight champion, Ireland’s McAleenan is 2-2 under the Cage Warriors promotional banner, although the Team Torres man disputes his contentious split decision loss to Tom Mearns in 2019. After losing two consecutive decisions, McAleenan bounced back at CW110 in Cork by defeating 47-fight veteran Antanas Jazbutis via unanimous decision. McAleenan will look to kick on and regain momentum when he faces England’s Ventre.

Adam Ventre is a 5-fight Cage Warriors veteran who has competed at a variety of weight classes in recent years, prompting him to label himself as the “BMF” of Cage Warriors. The Liverpudlian previously fought another Irishman in Dylan Tuke back in 2016. After a back-and-forth contest that saw Ventre hurting Tuke badly, it was the Irishman who claimed victory via rear-naked choke. Since that fight, Ventre has gone 4-1 with three first-round finishes. The Next Generation MMA fighter most recently fought a common opponent to McAleenan in Antanas Jazbutis, also winning via unanimous decision less than 2 months before McAleenan’s win. Ventre will have the opportunity once again to claim victory over Irish opposition when the pair meet inside Manchester’s BEC Arena.

Cage Warriors 115 will be broadcast LIVE on UFC Fight Pass.
