All the fights to look out for this Saturday night, and how to tune in around the world.
It’s almost time for Cage Warriors’ return to Cardiff!
In the main event this Saturday night, unbeaten Welsh prospect Mason ‘The Dragon’ Jones will go head-to-head with Finnish striking sensation Aleksi Mäntykivi at the Viola Arena.
Now 7-0 in the lightweight division, many believe Jones to be the most exciting Welsh prospect on the European scene, and predict for him a similar future to previous Cage Warriors champions turned UFC stars Jack Shore, Brett Johns and Jack Marshman.
But Mäntykivi – the only man to hold a win over former champion Søren Bak – is expected to give ‘The Dragon’ his toughest test yet, having picked up 2 consecutive knockout wins already this year.
This is Jones’ first main event headline appearance at the Viola Arena, a now-notorious venue for the sport of MMA in Wales which has hosted his last two fights against Donovan Desmae and Kacper Formela.
The CW108 main card will also feature appearances from surging Welsh prospects Oban Elliott and Cory McKenna, returning veteran Martin McDonough and former title challenger Josh ‘Crazyhorse’ Reed, who narrowly lost to the UFC’s Nathaniel Wood for the belt in 2017.
Two amateur title fights will top the CWA Wales card to kick off the event, followed by a pro-prelim card stacked with emerging Welsh talent.
Cage Warriors 108 will take place at the Cardiff Viola Arena this Saturday night, the 12th October. Tickets are still on sale HERE. Fans at the arena will also have the chance to participate in a free meet and greet with UFC stars Jack Shore and Brett Johns, as well as Cage Warriors light-heavyweight champion Modestas Bukauskas.
