English featherweight Connor Hitchens, best known for his participation in the popular fighting promotion Cage Warriors, passed away this week at the age of 26. No cause of death has been released.

Hitchens’ passing was confirmed today with a post on his official social media page.

Throughout his career, Hitchens competed more than twenty times, fighting his way through the ranks of IMMAF, the global body for MMA, as well as other organizations.

Connor started his professional career on a high note, amassing a 6-0 record. However, he subsequently lost his next two fights in a row. Hitchens had not competed since his Cage Warriors debut, during which he suffered a TKO loss from a spinning wheel-kick delivered by his opponent, Manny Akpan.

Connor was also scheduled to fight Antonio Sheldon in November 2022. However, Hitchens eventually withdrew from the fight before it ever came to fruition.

Cage Warriors and the IMMAF both released statements following the passing of their former fighter.

Fans and members of the MMA community have taken to social media to mourn the loss of the young fighter.

Rest in peace!
