Liverpool’s own Cage Warriors champion Chris Fishgold is set for action at the Echo Arena
One of the fastest-growing sports in the world will take centre stage at Echo Arena Liverpool for Cage Warriors 88 on 28 October 2017
The North West has risen to become a real hotbed of mixed martial arts fighting talent, and the event will showcase some of the very best Liverpudlian combat sports athletes, with two local heroes looking to finish the night holding Cage Warriors world titles.
Liverpool’s very own Cage Warriors lightweight world champion Chris Fishgold is set for action in the night’s main event as he attempts to win the title outright with his third straight title defence. But he faces a tough task against dangerous challenger Norwegian Alexander ‘Bad Romance’ Jacobsen, who has finished seven of his eight victories inside the distance.
Graham Boylan, President of Cage Warriors, said: “The whole Cage Warriors team is excited to go back to Liverpool. We’re looking to put on another huge show.”
Also set for action at Echo Arena is another of Liverpool’s favourite fighting sons, as former Cage Warriors featherweight world champion Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett returns looking to earn another shot at Cage Warriors championship gold. Proud Evertonian and rising star of women’s MMA in the UK, Molly ‘Meatball’ McCann, is also scheduled for action. The preliminary card will also feature a host of up-and-coming local fighting talent.
