Dude that Zel guy is badass. Thanks. Ridiculous hand speed. It's too bad he never fought A. Silva or Manhoef. I think both would be fireworks.

Other than Manhoef who do you think is a fighter that is worty of top 10 consideration in Cage rage.



Vitor "Shaolin" Ribiero is the Cage Rage LW champ
Anderson Silva is the MW champ
Zelg is top drawer, will be interesting to see how he goes in Pride


Cage Rage don't typically hold fighters to exclusive contracts, would be a bit silly on their part as they would never keep or indeed attract top fighters in the first place. The Bisping incident is possibly the only time I can recall difficulties with exclusivity, and I think that was because it involved another UK org Cage Warriors

However they do a great job of bringing over established overseas stars and developing young UK based fighters

Their matchmaking is great as well

Yes totally agree with you livershot, they seem to match up and completely make the best of the fighters they have or had. For instance setting Manhoef with Cyborg, great move and then again with Freeman was a big hooray.

Isn't cage rage in someway afiliated with Pride? It seems alot of their fighters have fought there.

Seemingly so, whether it's official or not, I don't know. But Pride does seem to use Cage Rage as a feeder club to help bolster their talent pool.

It is true, I expect to see him on the next Pride card in Japan

In the next Cage Rage they are matching Zelg up with Dajiro Matsui the former gatekeeper for Pride

I expect lots of blood seeping from Matsui wounds Unless Zelg sparks him out clean, but one thing Matsui is, tough as old boots

Well I heard Zelg vs Cung Le on the next Pride card...

May just be rumours but i'll ask Cung when I do the interview.

mmmm there is only a couple of weeks between CR and Pride USA, and he is def listed as fighting Matsui on the CR card

Seems unlikely but you never know

Zelg is no longer listed on the Cage Rage card if you check today. It's Matsui vs. Watson now. Rumours are not so far fetched now.
