PFL Europe: British MMA star Dominique Wooding sets sights on ‘becoming a champion again’

Former Cage Warriors champion Dominique Wooding admitted he is looking forward to ‘exciting times’ with PFL Europe as he targets the $100,000 prize.

PFL Europe officially kicked off last weekend with light-heavyweights and women's flyweights competing in the inaugural event in Newcastle. 

The next instalment of the newly-created league will take place on July 8 in Berlin when the lightweights and bantamweights take to the octagon.
Star PFL signing Dominique Wooding will be part of the event as he looks to reassert himself as a dominant force among the bantamweights.
The Brit, who has a 9-5 professional record, was last in action in October as he lost to Michele Martignoni via unanimous decision.

When asked why he signed with the PFL, he told Planet Sport: "Getting paid my worth and having another opportunity to become a champion again.

"I've said this numerous times, the PFL are doing great things. Especially now that they're coming over to Europe. Getting top European talent across all the weight classes for the European season. That's why I moved over.

"They wanted to sign me since last year but that didn't come to fruition because I was with Cage Warriors and I had to get through my contract in order for me to head over to PFL.

"Exciting times ahead this year and I'm looking forward to becoming a champion again and having a $100,000 prize."
When asked whether he had other options on the table, the 26-year-old said: "I did but it wasn't much to what the PFL were offering honestly speaking. That's why you see me here."

The opening event of PFL Europe was a sell-out as MMA fans filled out the Vertu Motors Arena.

The organisation will be hoping for a similar turnout as they turn their attention to Berlin in July.
When asked about PFL's expansion into Europe, Wooding added: "With the way they're doing it, how they're attacking the European scene aggressively, that's how it needs to be done.
"You get some other shows who try to do it but don't do it as effectively. I fell the PFL will do this European season effectively and attack the scene aggressively."
