Cage Warriors announces return for Manchester with shows on three straight days in September
Cage Warriors will return this fall with an ambitious triple-header in England.
Cage Warriors 114, Cage Warriors 115 and Cage Warriors 116 will take place on three consecutive days on Sept. 24, 25 and 26 at BEC Arena in Manchester. Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan previously revealed the plan to MMA Junkie, but the promotion made it official Friday.
The events will be Cage Warriors’ first since Cage Warriors 113 took place March 20 in Manchester just as most of the world was starting to shut down due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’ve pulled off big events before, but this is something else entirely,” Boylan stated. “(We’ll have) all our biggest names across one weekend. We’re leaving no stone unturned.
“It’s taken a lot of planning, but we’re ready to get back on the road. We’re back to doing what we do best, and that’s showcasing Europe’s best talent and providing the proven pathway to the top.”
No actual fights have been announced for the trio of shows, but the promotion said lightweight champion Mason Jones, bantamweight champ Jack Cartwright, flyweight titleholder Samir Faiddine and middleweight champ Nathias Frederick will put their titles on the line. Plus, standouts like Paddy Pimblett, Morgan Charriere, Rhys McKee and Adam Proctor also are expected to be part of the lineups.
The series of events, which Cage Warriors has dubbed “The Trilogy,” will take place without fans in attendance at BEC Arena. The events will stream on UFC Fight Pass.
