Cage Warriors reaches Newcastle this Saturday.
The stage is set for a sparkling end to the year as Cage Warriors 62 hits Newcastle, Sat, Dec 7th, Metro Radio arena, with a Christmas card promising to deliver some of the very best in MMA entertainment. It’s another bumper period for the ever ascending promotion and as it closes 2013 with a triumvirate of events it continues to break new ground and emerge into new territories, positioning itself at the forefront as one of the most exciting and progressive organisations to come out of Europe. Newcastle’s Metro Radio arena will play host to an all-star cast of fighters who will be looking to finish things off in a blaze of spectacular action that will electrify the audience.
Here are five of the finest festive throwdowns, gift wrapped for your viewing pleasure –
1. A grudge match will go down at 145lbs as the notoriously vocal Ian “Enty” Entwistle (7/1) will look to extend his impressive run of successive submission victories against Newcastle native Liam “Bad Intentions” James (8/5) who will indeed be intent on silencing his nemesis whilst putting on a marquee performance in view of the partisan crowd.
2. The light-heavyweights will then take centre stage as rising prospects Richie “The Guvnor” Knox (3/0) faces Karl Moore (3/0) in a tale of two undefeated fighters who will need to build upon a promising start to their careers if they are to push further toward title aspirations.
3. Then an outstanding featherweight bout takes place between the unbeaten Chris Fishgold (9/0) who will have to be on top form when he meets seasoned Frenchman Olivier “Wide Eyed” Pastor (18/14/0/1NC) as the veteran will be hoping to create some momentum of his own against his younger charge.
4. A humdinger of a contest will hit the canvas at 155lbs as Wesley “The Immortal” Murch (13/6) will try to increase his four-fight win streak as he welcomes UFC and BAMMA veteran Curt “The War” Warburton (12/4) who having signed an exclusive deal with Cage Warriors, will be intent on re-asserting his status as one of the leading lightweights in Britain.
5. The pinnacle of the nights events will see Neil “2 Tap” Seery (13/9) aim to successfully retain the Cage Warriors Flyweight title as he collides with dangerous American challenger Ulysses Gomes (9/4) who after an extended run in the UFC will be fully focused on claiming the belt by bouncing back with another signature submission victory.
Cage Warriors is without question one of the best live shows you can experience and with a talent rich pool of fighters who consistently make their way into the UFC, Cage Warriors 62 is shaping up to provide the perfect platform for Europe’s finest to prove they belong among the best in the world.
