#WFS6 takes place this coming Saturday night at the famous York Hall in London and #WHOATV are pleased to bring you some exclusive changes to some of the previously announced bouts.
Aidan James Vs Gregor Jurcic WFS Amateur Featherweight Title
Welshman Aidan James has been given a new last minute opponent in Gregor Jurcic and the pair will compete for the WFS Featherweight Amateur Title. Jurcic is undefeated in his amateur career and the Slovenian born fighter trains under former UFC star Dean Amasinger. This fight will be a big step up for Jurcic with James being one of the most highly touted amateur fighters in the UK. James has a sublime submission base which is backed up by his six submission wins but is really taking on a big risk in fighting Jurcic who will go into this bout as the underdog, but lets not forget underdogs don’t have as much to lose and everything to gain.
Scott Pederson Vs Charlie Howard Amateur Lightweight Bout
Lightweight Scott Pedersen has stepped in on late notice to take on Charlie Howard in a 155lbs amateur clash which offers him a real good shot at beating a well established name on the UK amateur scene. Welshman Pedersen trains alongside Aidan James who is also competing on the show and will look to build on his 2016 success which started with a win over Alan Hunt at Budo Fighting Championships back in March. Howard is a tough test for anyone and looked great in his last bout against Ben Manuwa . This bout definitely has all the potential to steal the show and make sure that if you are attending the show, you get to see this fight.
Also announced for the show are two further amateur bouts;
John Reid Vs Rob McAdam Amateur Lightweight
Patrick Friary Vs Luiz Finocchio Amateur Welterweight
New safety measures being implemented
Another recently announced key point to note is that Harry Shoebridge has assigned a cage side doctor to oversee the show which is a huge step forward in ensuring fighter safety. Dr Alan Sweeney will be at the show to make sure that fighter safety is managed in the correct manner, and is someone who has lots of experience in MMA working with the UFC. Given recent happenings in the European MMA community this is a really great step for the promotion and hats off to Harry Shoebridge for looking after each and every fighter on that card.
