Matt Veach UFC TUF 10

Matt Veach at TUF 10 Finale

The HIT Squad will soon be sending two of its top members across the ocean as former UFC lightweight Matt Veach heads to Cage Warriors in England to face Kenneth Rosfort-Nees in a lightweight title bout in the main event on October 1.

Since leaving the UFC, Veach has worked to get back on track following back-to-back losses in the Octagon. Going 2-0 in his last two fights, Veach will fight the Cage Warriors lightweight champion Kenneth Rosfort-Nees, who himself rides a 6-fight win streak.

Also on the card will be fellow HIT Squad fighter Jake Hecht as he takes his own 6-fight win streak to England as he faces Che Mills in a catchweight fight at 175lbs.

The card will also feature the return of former Cage Warriors featherweight champion Danny Batten, who has been on the sidelines for almost two years, and now returns to face Ismael Padavia in a featured bout on the night’s card.

Several other local fights will be featured on the Oct 1 card taking place at the HMV Forum in Kentish Town, England.
