FOR CAGE WARRIORS 62, TONIGHT
(London.7th December 13) Tonight, Cage Warriors presents Cage Warriors 62 under the governance of Safe MMA. All professional fighters on tonight’s card have been medically cleared to fight. Cage Warriors 62 takes place at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.
With a number of fighter replacements in the run up to the event, including one very late replacement not passing his medical today, the promotion has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure tonight’s card complies with Safe MMA rules and has been forced to make some tough judgement calls:
Mateusz Strzelczyk did not pass his pre-fight medical exam today, and his catchweight bout against Danny Roberts has been scrapped from tonight’s card. Cage Warriors officials made the announcement this morning.
Also, main event title challenger Ulysses Gomez collapsed yesterday while cutting weight for his Flyweight title fight against champion Neil Seery, and was taken to hospital. It was announced by Cage Warriors officials that Gomez would not be competing in the interests of his health.
Dr. Jack Kreindler of Safe MMA said: “Congratulations to Cage Warriors for leading the way in taking punishing decisions to put fighter safety above revenues.”
Matchmaker, Ian Dean, said: “I would like to once again thank everyone at Safe MMA for their hard work in ensuring that for the 8th time this year that all the pro fighters in a CWFC UK based event are Safe MMA registered. I would personally like to thank Dr Jack and in particular Yoni who has been instrumental in making this happen and I look forward to continuing this relationship next year.”
