In what has been a crazy week throughout all walks of life around the world, Cage Warriors made the decision to press ahead with CW113.
Despite taking place behind closed doors and in Manchester instead of London, all fighters competing successfully made weight ahead of tomorrow night’s 11-fight card.
With an abundance of questions and concerns being raised in light of the Covid-19 outbreak, Cage Warriors adopted a number of safety precautions at today’s weigh-ins.
Three separate weigh-ins were held throughout the day, minimising the amount of people in contact at any one time. Only one team member was permitted into their fighter’s allocated time slot to reduce numbers further.
All athletes were checked for symptoms of Covid-19 by an on-site medic at the weigh-ins.
Similarly, all staff and crew members will be checked for Covid-19 symptoms before entering the BEC Arena on fight day. Fighters will also be tested for symptoms a second time before competing.
The card features a lightweight world title fight between Mason Jones and Joe McColgan, as both men battle to get their hands on the belt formerly held by multiple UFC stars including Conor McGregor and most recently Jai Herbert.
Former champion Paddy Pimblett will also return to action against Decky Dalton on the main card which also features a showdown between Darren Stewart and Bartosz Fabinski, both of whom were originally scheduled to appear against different opponents on the cancelled UFC London card.
