CAGE WARRIORS is pleased to announce that Aaron Wilkinson has committed his future to the organisation.

Wilkinson (8-5-0) has signed a fight-five deal with Cage Warriors, which will begin when he makes his CWFC debut in London in July.

The Manchester lightweight was a contestant on Season 12 of The Ultimate Fighter but was defeated by Cody McKenzie at the finale in Las Vegas in December 2010.

25-year-old Wilkinson, who fights out of the Wolfslair Academy, has since picked up domestic wins over Arunas Klimavicius and Danny Welsh.

“Aaron is a very exciting fighter who already has a lot of experience under his belt,” said Cage Warriors director Graham Boylan.

“But we feel the best is still to come from him and everyone at Cage Warriors is very happy to have him on board.”
