Fight week is here! Cage Warriors 99 goes down at the Colchester Charter Hall this Saturday night, headlined by a flyweight title fight between reigning Champion Nathan Greyson and Blaine O’Driscoll.
Nathan Greyson’s spectacular knockout win to win the belt at CW92 sent shockwaves through the European flyweight ranks, and positioned him as one of the most dangerous men in Europe at 125lbs. Greyson has knocked out his last three opponents and is confident he can do the same to every man that comes for his belt.
“Line them all up. I’m knocking them down like bowling pins,” says Greyson. “Bring them all. I’m here for world domination, nothing less.”
Meeting Greyson in Colchester on November 17th is Irish prospect Blaine O’Driscoll, who returns to the cage after a first-round submission victory over Aaron Robinson in May. O’Driscoll is one of the 50+ fighters that Cage Warriors has signed to exclusive deals this year alone, and is trained by head coach John Kavanagh at SBG Ireland (home of former two-weight Cage Warriors champion Conor McGregor), making his Cage Warriors debut with a record of 6-2 and finishes in his last three wins.
Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan said: “Nathan Greyson is not an easy man to match because he can end the fight in so many ways even in the later rounds, as we learnt earlier this year. It takes a truly game competitor to get in that cage with him and we have that in Blaine O’Driscoll. This will be an awesome main event.”
Also added to the CW99 card is a Welterweight matchup between Phil Wells and Jamie Richardson. Both men have six knockouts each to their name and are looking to climb the incredibly competitive Cage Warriors welterweight division with another impressive finish. Steve Aimable, fresh off a 14-second knockout win at CW97 last month, will face Josh Abraham, who has ended every one of his five wins within the distance.
Other big names stepping up to fight this weekend include Mads Burnell, who makes his CW debut after a 3-fight run with the UFC. He faces Polish lightweight Lukasz Rajewski on the CW99 main card.
Appearances from South-East England names Steve Aimable, Craig Edwards and James Webb will ensure that the home fans have plenty to shout about at the Charter Hall.
Cage Warriors 99 will take place at the Charter Hall in Colchester on Saturday November 17th. The show – Cage Warriors 10th announced for 2018 so far – is an additional event to the originally-planned 2018 calendar, added to ensure that the promotions’ growing roster of elite athletes is kept active. The event will give fans in Essex a chance to witness Cage Warriors’ renowned atmosphere and live TV production, and will build on the excellent work done in the region by the Cage Warriors Academy South East team.
Doors open at 4pm, with the first amateur fight of the night underway at 5pm. Tickets for CW99 are very limited but still available here.
