Last year, Reis signed on with the Cage Warriors team once again. The Brazilian has already defeated Jeremiah Labiano and Tuomas Gronvall, so he should be confident in taking on Johnny Campbell in his first major tournament.

It is a shock to Campbell that he has to go up against Reis this coming Saturday. Ricky Camp replaces Campbell after only four days of training. The American, like Reis, is a well-known veteran of the mixed martial arts scene in his native country of the United States. Campbell fought in various MMA promotions, including Bellator and CES MMA, where he defeated the likes of Kris Moutinho and Henry Corrales.

The Russian Eivas will make his professional ring debut at Cage Warriors. He’s going to be a big help to Guilherme Santos. Eivas is a very appealing vector with a perfect record of success in the ring. Even so, Russia will want payback for his most recent party. He challenged Toby Misech for the championship at Trinity Kings but lost in a disqualification match.
De Weg Terug
Damon Wilson’s anticipation is also confirmed. Since 2021, the talented American has competed in Cage Warriors. Wilson impressed with his striking and decisive four victories in a little over a year.
