Paul "Semtex" Daley to defend at Cage Rage 26
Two fighters seem to command a majority of the British public’s attention these days. One is Michael Bisping, the light heavyweight winner on season three of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series. The other is Cage Rage world welterweight champion Paul Daley. Though Daley (17-6-2) recently announced his plans to retire, he will not hang up his gloves before he defends his Cage Rage title at least one more time. The Team Rough House fighter has confirmed he will compete at Cage Rage 26 “Extreme” on Saturday, May 10 at the NEC Arena in Birmingham, England. “I’ll be defending my world title belt on May10 at Cage Rage,” Daley said. “No opponent has been confirmed yet.”

Brad Pickett VS. Paul Reed at CAGE RAGE 26
Following impressive performances at this past weekend’s FX3 fight card in Reading, England, two of the main card protagonists will be meeting each other at Cage Rage 26. MMAWeekly.com can confirm that Paul Reed and Brad Pickett will be facing each other on the promotion’s Birmingham debut at the NEC Arena. For Pickett this fight mark’s his return to the promotion’s main stage following his successful win via guillotine choke over Frederic Fernandez and still leaves the path clear for him to fight for the FX3 world featherweight title against his previous opponent’s brother, Emmanuel Fernandez. Paul Reed, by contrast, comes off a loss against the aforementioned Emmanuel Fernandez, but was impressive in his showing against the champion. His appearance against Pickett at Cage Rage will be an introduction for him into a division that is stacked full of potential future match-ups. Cage Rage 26 Bouts (confirmed): -Ian Freeman vs. Paul Cahoon -Ross Pointon vs. Ross Mason -Mark Epstein vs. Matt Ewin -James Zikic vs. Rodney Faverus -Henrique Nogueria vs. Marc Goddard -Kev Sims vs. Popek Rak -Harvey Harra vs. Gary Kelly -Brad Pickett vs. Paul Reed Cage Rage 26 Bouts (unconfirmed): -Paul Daley vs. Aaron Wetherspoon Just posting this really beacuse i like Brad Pickett, he's like the guy Brad Pitt plays in Snatch.

Cage Rage on Thursday announced the first casualty of its internal drug testing policy. John Phillips, who won his bout over London favorite Jake Bostwick at Cage Rage 25 on March 8, failed his drug test. In this instance, with Phillips’ drug test results coming back positive, the fight has been ruled a no-contest and he faces a 120-day suspension that will prohibit him from “competing in any U.K. Mixed Martial Arts Event.” It will be interesting to see if this prevents him from competing in any kickboxing events or any mixed martial arts events run by another promoter, as there is currently no governing body for the sport in the U.K. to enforce the penalty handed down by Cage Rage. The full acid test on the U.K. working together for the benefit of the sport and supporting Cage Rage’s plans for a controlled drug-free environment will be known if and when another promotion outside of the Cage Rage network tries to book Phillips for a show.

Freeman will make his comeback against rising light heavyweight standout Paul “Boom Boom” Cahoon in the main event at Cage Rage 26, scheduled for Saturday, May 10 at Wembley Arena in London.

UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock vs. Robert Berry at Cage Rage 25 “Bring It On”
UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock will make his promotional debut against Robert Berry at Cage Rage 25 “Bring It On” on Saturday, March 8 at Wembley Arena in London. Shamrock’s manager, Rod Donahoo, confirmed the bout on Thursday. Shamrock (26-12-2), who turns 44 in February, has lost seven of his past nine fights, including four straight. He last competed in October 2006, when he succumbed to strikes against arch rival Tito Ortiz. It was Shamrock’s third loss to the former UFC light heavyweight champion, all three by TKO. The UFC released “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” from his contract last June. Berry (11-7, 6-3 CR), a veteran of the Cage Rage circuit, will enter the bout on a two-fight losing streak. The British kickboxer last fought in December, when he was stopped by unbeaten Neil Grove at Cage Rage 24. Berry drew international attention in December, when he challenged Internet street fighting legend Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson. The two could meet in the future, as Cage Rage and EliteXC – the promotion for which Ferguson fights – are both owned by Pro Elite Inc. All 11 of Berry’s victories have come by KO, TKO or submission.

The Year in European MMA
2007 was an outstanding year for European MMA. The UFC returned to the U.K. for the first time in almost three years. Meanwhile Fedor Emelianenko, arguably the strongest fighter to ever grace a ring, was scarce inside the squared circle but still dominated the headlines. Last but not least, there was a tremendous power shift on the European scene when longtime powerhouse promotions Cage Rage and M-1 Mix-Fight Championship were sold to American companies ProElite and Sibling Entertainment Group respectively. Read on for the most comprehensive roundup you'll find on the year in European MMA.
