The night's preliminary card streams on Cage Warriors' Facebook page.

Hayes, who's also competed with Strikeforce and ROTR, looks for his fifth straight win and his ninth victory in his past 10 fights. His only loss during the streak came to Alexey Oleinik in a Bellator season-three heavyweight-tourney fight. Most recently, he topped Neil Grove via split decision at Bellator 52.

Additional Cage Warriors Fight Night 4 fights will be announced in the coming weeks.

That is definately true. It also builds a bigger market for regional promotions. However, the UFC will reign supreme for a long time.

There is literally no interest in MMA in the Middle-east however there is alot of money over there (mostly owned by 1% of the population who ironically are sponsoring these events) and an interest in all things Western, this is purely a phase that will probably burn out (unfortunately).

The case with Brazil is that there are 200m people in that country and LOADS are watching it on free TV when infact there isn't much money in that country, when it comes time to discuss PPV in Brazil the UFC are going to see that the format will not work.

So all the interest in the Middle East is all money driven which is typical. What Dana should consider in Brazil is a lower price on PPV's in Brazil. That way people can actually look into it.

I'm not positive what time this airs Friday, but you can watch the whole thing live on the internet. Prelims on facebook, and the main card on mmajunkie. They added the rest of the main card too:

The main card is set for next week's Cage Warriors Fight Night 4 event.

The show, which streams live on MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), takes place Friday, March 16, at Dubai World Trade Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

As previously announced, the event features a headliner of Andreas Kraniotakes (13-5) vs. recent Bellator competitor Mike Hayes (16-4-1) for the organization's vacant heavyweight title.

In the co-headliner, welterweights Assan Njie (11-2) and Steven Ray (9-2) square off. Njie, a Swedish fighter and Superior Challenge vet, has won four straight and 11 of his past 12. He takes on Ray, a fellow promotional newcomer. The Scottish fighter has won two straight and five of his past six.

In another featured bout, recent UFC fighter and M-1 vet Lucio Linhares (16-7) looks for his third win in four fights. The Brazilian takes on Kyle Baker (10-5), an American who's won nine of 11 with victories over notables such as James Warfield, Drew Fickett and Chad Reiner.

Other main-card bouts include female flyweights Jennifer Maia (5-1) vs. Shelia Gaff (9-4), lightweights Mansour Barnaoui (6-0) vs. Brad Wheeler (7-6), and flyweights Casey Dyer (8-2) vs. Phil Harris (20-9).

Additionally, two preliminary-card bouts stream on Cage Warriors' Facebook page: welterweights Bradley Scott (7-1) vs. Mok Rahman (9-3) and heavyweights Cryil Asker (0-1) vs. Adam Brearley (1-0).

The full card now includes:

The internet MMA market seems to be a growing market in terms of broadcasting.
