Sheila Gaff vs Angela Hayes Agreed For CWFC: Fight Night 2 In JordanAfter a month of uncertainty, rising star Sheila “The German Tank” Gaff has found an opponent. The 125-pound standout has agreed to face Colorado native Angela Hayes at Cage Warriors Fighting Championship: “Fight Night 2,” which is set to take place on September 8th in Amman, Jordan. confirmed plans for the matchup with a source close to the negotiations today. Bout agreements have not yet been signed. Gaff was originally set to face Rosi “The Surgeon” Sexton in a women’s title fight at CWFC 43 in July, but the bout with Hayes is not expected to be for a title.

Gaff (9-4-1) looked to be without a fight for Cage Warriors after Sexton was forced to withdraw due to injury last month. Close to a dozen fighters declined offers to fight Gaff; due partly to her reputation as one of the hardest hitters in the 125-pound division, while scheduling issues also played a part. She is coming off of back-to-back first-round knockout wins, including an April stoppage of NAAFS champion Aisling “Ais The Bash” Daly. Gaff has been to a decision just one time in her career and all nine of her wins have come by stoppage.

Hayes (4-5-0) will enter the bout with Gaff as an underdog, but she has won three straight fights and is coming off of her biggest victory to date. In May, she earned a Unanimous Decision win over former Tuff-N-Uff champion Tsui-Jen Cunanan in Colorado. Prior to that, Hayes scored a pair of submission wins in 2010. All five of her career losses have come against top opposition, including defeats at the hands of 135-pound standouts Tonya Evinger, Jennifer Tate and Julie Kedzie. Hayes has gone the distance only twice in her professional career.

While Gaff is no longer expected to be competing for a title, she will have an opportunity to pick up her second straight win for Cage Warriors. Hayes will be making her promotional debut, but a victory over the surging Gaff would make a big statement in the increasingly competitive 125-pound division.

Cage Warriors Fighting Championship: “Fight Night 2” takes place on September 8th at Al-Hussein Youth City Boxing Arena in Amman, Jordan.
