This Saturday, September 10, Cage Warriors Fighting Championship returns to Liverpool’s Echo Arena for the first time in two years, with a show packed with the cream of European MMA performing in front of a global TV audience.
Back in 2014, CWFC 68’s main card produced 10 stoppages and the promotion is hoping for the same fireworks on Saturday. At CWFC 78, two world titles are on the line for the lightweight and featherweight belts – both being contested by home crowd favourites, Chris Fishgold and Paddy Pimblett.
Headlining the show is highly ranked Englishman Chris Fishgold, who makes the first defence of his lightweight title against Frenchman, Jason Ponet. His teammate Paddy Pimblett challenges Frenchman Johnny Frachey for the featherweight title.
The main card action, from the Echo Arena Liverpool will feature five televised professional bouts starting at 9pm* (UK time).
CHANGES TO THE CARD:
Vaughan Lee has withdrawn due to injury. His opponent Arnold Quero is now matched on CWFC 79, due to take place next month in Newport, Wales.
Doors at the Echo Arena, Liverpool will open at 5:00pm – tickets are available to purchase here.
