Many of Cage Warriors’ biggest names met in the U.K capital today to weigh in for CW102, one of the promotion’s most impressive London cards ever.
Topping the bill is a middleweight title fight between London’s own James Webb, who tipped the scales at 184.2lbs, and Thomas Robertsen (184.1lbs) from Norway.
Their stare down had the intensity to match any title fight in the Cage Warriors books, but respect shone through. Both men rose through the ranks together in the Cage Warriors Academy South East, and now a defining point in their fighting journeys can be marked as they meet under main event lights with the title on the line.
Also stacking the main card are two hugely exciting lightweight bouts in Jai Herbert (155.6 lbs) vs Steve O’Keeffe (154lbs) and Perry Goodwin (154.7lbs) vs Rhys McKee (155.8lbs). With the lightweight division the strongest its ever been and many contenders eyeing the title, it’s all to fight for on Saturday night.
Opening up the main card is Brazil’s Joilton Santos (170.5lbs) vs Craig ‘The Thundercat’ White (170.5lbs), who is back in the yellow gloves after a 2-fight run with the UFC.
Fans can tune in to all of the above action on CW102’s Main Card live on UFC FightPass from 9PM Saturday night.
A major talking point in the run up to CW102 has rightly been the strength of Cage Warriors 8-fight pro prelims, which will be aired free for all on UFC Fight Pass from 5.40PM. Highlights include the return of top flyweight contenders Sam Creasey (125.6 lbs) and Andy Young (125.1 lbs), and an electric bantamweight bout between Brian Bouland (135.1 lbs) and London fan favourite Cory Tait (135.9 lbs).
Unfortunately, late medical issues have forced both Adam Amarasinghe and Carlos Graca off the card, meaning their bouts with Darren O’Gorman and Michael Younis have been cancelled.
The London Indigo at the O2 Arena is over 90% sold out for CW102, with the very last remaining standing tickets available HERE.
