After this morning’s weigh-ins in Manchester, UK, the card for Cage Warriors 136 is now official.
With Djati Melan’s middleweight title defence against Christian Leroy Duncan topping the bill, the action goes down tomorrow – Saturday, 2nd April – at the BEC Arena.
Two of the 28 fighters – Luke Riley and Manny Akpan – weighed in above their contracted weight. However, with agreements in place between the respective camps, all bouts will proceed nevertheless.
The stacked card acts as the second part of a weekend double-header, following on from tonight’s CW 135 at the same venue.
CW 136 – which can be viewed live on UFC Fight Pass – begins tomorrow night with the prelims at 6pm local time, followed by the main card at 9pm.
