Kyle Driscoll talks upcoming Cage Warriors title fight and goal of becoming a UFC fighter

Kyle Driscoll made himself a lofty goal when he was a teenager.

One day when he was 15-year-olds he said to himself that he was going to one day be a professional fighter and his career would be “UFC or bust.”

In 2020 he had a chance to fulfill his goal when he competed on Dana White’s Contender Series and despite picking up a win, UFC president Dana White didn’t choose to give him a UFC contract.

Since then, the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) athlete joined the Cage Warriors promotion, which has produced a number of high-level UFC athletes and world champions like Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Gegard Mousasi and many more.

After winning his Cage Warriors debut against Joshua Jones, the promotions has no given Driscoll a major opportunity.

On July 22 at Cage Warriors 141, Driscoll will be fighting against George Hardwick for the vacant Cage Warriors lightweight championship.

Given the number of fighters who have won a Cage Warriors title and then went on the compete in the UFC, Driscoll is fully aware that he is likely a win a way from finally getting into the UFC and fulfilling his dream.

Not only does he have a shot at getting into the UFC, but he also has a shot at American history as only seven Americans have won a Cage Warriors title.

Prior to the fight, Driscoll spoke with MyMMANews about his upcoming title fight, his dream of making it into the UFC and training at AKA.
