Alexander Lööf is stoked about PrizeFighter

The Cage Warriors PrizeFighter card goes down on July 20 in London, at Cage Warriors 174, with the semi finals and final the same night.

In a recent interview with Frontkick, the Swedish bantamweight talked about the excitement of the tournament.

“I give absolutely no shit about who’s in the tournament,” Lööf said. “That’s actually what makes me so excited about it. It can be anyone that I will face, and there will be two fights per night. I mean, isn’t that fucking cool!”

Alexander Lööf fought on the FCR 20 main card, on June 1, where he defeated the tough Ukrainian Andrey Tyschenko via split decision.

Liam “Nightmare” Gittins rides an impressive six-fight winning streak in Cage Warriors. He won the bantamweight title in front of a sold out crowd at the Vertu Motors Arena, at Cage Warriors 164.
