Cage Rage announced on Friday that longtime promoter Andy Geer has stepped down from the company to pursue other business interests outside the sport of MMA according to the promotion.

He is being replaced by Chris Cordeiro, who will now lead the organization along with Dave O’Donnell, who has been with Cage Rage for many years.

Cordeiro has worked with King of the Cage, International Fight Championships, and his own Cordeiro Promotions in the past.

“Cage Rage has made great strides to become No. 1 in the UK and is now the leading European MMA brand and becoming well known around the world,” said Cordeiro in a press release. “I am hitting the ground running and aim to take it to the next level and ensure that its popularity is converted into major business and brand growth in Britain and Europe.”

Cordeiro will assume Geer’s responsibilities as promoter effective immediately.

The next Cage Rage show is set to take place on May 10 featuring the return of British heavy hitter, Ian Freeman, who is coming out of retirement for this fight.
