Cage Warriors 113 has become one of the most talked about stories in European sport over the weekend. Here’s everything you need to know.
The London Indigo at the O2 – the venue due to host CW113 this Friday night – confirmed that it will no longer be open to events until further notice. The news came via an announcement from AEG.
Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan has confirmed that he and his team have moved this Friday night’s CW113 to the Manchester BEC Arena – the venue that hosted the promotion’s last event on March 7th. The event will be held behind closed doors with only fighters and event staff in attendance.
Boylan said: “The Cage Warriors team is working around-the-clock to get this done.
“After everything they’ve been through, the fighters deserve to compete. After all the support they’ve shown us, the fans deserve some calm amongst the chaos. We’re determined to provide the world with a seriously exciting night of MMA this Friday.”
The card has retained the majority of it’s bouts – including 3 world title fights – and looks to increase further as Boylan works with UFC management to salvage some of the fights lost from the UFC London card which was forced to relocate amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
The first of the UFC London bouts confirmed to now take place at Cage Warriors 113 is John Phillips vs Dusko Todorovic. Phillips – a Cage Warriors veteran – last fought in the yellow gloves at CW54 in 2013. The second is Darren Stewart vs Bartosz Fabinski, which was agreed after Stewart and Fabinski’s previous opponents were unable to compete amid the fallout.
This, and any other bouts moved from the UFC London card, will take place as UFC bouts but inside the Cage Warriors cage. Stay tuned for card updates over the next few days.
In the Cage Warriors 113 Main Event, Featherweight number one contender Morgan Charrieré (15-7) will battle Darko Banović (17-7) for the Interim belt. With current champion Mads Burnell currently out of action, this matchup between two of Europe’s best will determine the next man to face him.
The second title fight is scheduled in the flyweight division, with champion Samir Faiddine (11-6) taking on Luke Shanks (6-1).
In perhaps the most exciting shake-up on the card so far, Mason Jones (8-0) and Joe McColgan (6-2) will now face off for the lightweight title after both of their previous opponents withdrew from the card at late notice. A similar agreement has occurred on the Pro Prelims – with Aidan Stephen and Jack Collins both losing their opponents last week (Emrah Sonmez and Joshua Onwordi, respectively), they will now fight each other at lightweight.
Former Champion Paddy Pimblett (14-3) also returns to action on the Main Card, taking on Ireland’s Decky Dalton (11-4). Dalton stepped in to face ‘The Baddy’ last week after travel restrictions currently imposed in Italy forced Davide Martinez to withdraw.
All fans who purchased CW113 tickets will be contacted and refunded.
It was announced on March 18 via the promotions twitter account that due to flight restrictions two of the three title fights are cancelled. The card will now instead be headlined by a UFC bout between Darren Stewart and Bartosz Fabinski, re-located from UFC London. Mason Jones vs Joe McColgan for the Cage Warriors Lightweight Title is set as the Co-Main Event.
