Cage Warriors: The Trilogy |Watch Live Free CW 115 preview, full fight card and how to watchCage Warriors is well and truly back up and running!Last night, we saw event one of their return series of three fight nights entitled “The Trilogy.” You can read all about what went down at CW 114 here.
Cage Warriors is the first MMA promotion to put on a government-approved in the UK amid the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
With all three events sponsored by sports management agency and athlete performance specialists Envisage MMA, night two of Cage Warriors’ The Trilogy run takes place tonight with CW 115 being held behind closed doors at Manchester’s BEC Arena.
We’ll take a look at CW 115 and share the information you need to watch live later this evening. Also, stay tuned to catch the previews and viewing information for the last event of The Trilogy, CW 116, which will come out tomorrow morning.
Last night was a showcase of flyweights, but it’s the Cage Warriors bantamweight title that’s on the line at CW 115.Champion Jack Cartwright will be putting his gold at 135 pounds on the line against Gerardo Fanny.
Bolton’s Cartwright is among the UK’s most promising MMA prospects after taking his spotless 4-0 amateur record to the professional ranks and go 8-0 – seven of those wins coming by either submission or knockout.The English bantamweight is a great striker with a penchant for spectacular submissions and looks right at home as Cage Warriors champion.
However, Curacao-born Dutch opponent Fanny could prove an interesting test for the unbeaten Cartwright.Fanny boasts a pro record of 9-1, seven wins coming by knockout or submission, and is equally adept at fighting on the feet and down on the floor like his counterpart Cartwright.
This will be Fanny’s first outing in the Cage Warriors cage and he will be hoping to upset local lad Cartwright in Manchester even if there isn’t anyone in attendance.Cartwright vs. Fanny is a must-watch for any self-respecting MMA fan.
There are plenty of fun fights on the Cage Warriors 115 undercard, including the middleweight scrap pitting UFC veteran Craig White against James Webb, but it’s the lightweight contest between Jack Grant and Yassine Belhadj which captures my attention.
With a 15-5 record and 14 of those victories coming by way of finish, Grant is the epitome of a fighter and he will enter the cage at CW 115 with a chip on his shoulder after his TKO loss to Jai Herbert in June, 2019.
Grant has notched up big wins on the regional circuit in both Cage Warriors and BAMMA but will be taking on a game Belhadj tonight.
Hailing out of Paris, France Belhadj will be making his Cage Warriors debut at CW 115. Like Grant, Belhadj (6-2) favours making a quick night of his fights over going to a decision. “Crazy Legs” has five finish wins, three by KO and two by submission.
The contest between these to European lightweights should make for intriguing viewing.
