Cage Warriors 90 Preview

Published

on

Cage Warriors 90 is right around the corner, taking place a week from — Saturday, February 28th at Liverpool’s Echo Arena, and is set to be an absolute belter show with a stacked card.

Liverpool’s own Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett makes his return to the Cage Warriors’ octagon to face Alexis Savvidis, after losing his last and having an injury push back his comeback fight by a few months.

Pimblett comes into the fight in better shape than ever, after making a move up in weight to Lightweight, meaning his battles with cutting weight should be easier. Pimblett has made no secret by revealing in a recent interview with Cage Warriors how he struggled with making weight for his last few fights.

“The new and improved” Pimblett (in his own words) also revealed how he is now no longer “working at fifty per cent” and that he is now putting his all into his training. Pimblett’s opponent won’t be a push over though, the Greek has great submission skills and has drawn one and won four of his last five fights, meaning Pimblett is up against a tough opponent.

Fellow scouser and Next Generation MMA gym buddy of Pimblett, “Meatball” Molly McCann is also set to do battle in the cage, against Bryony Tyrell, to decide who will be the first ever Cage Warriors Women’s Flyweight champion. McCann comes into the fight on a five fight win streak, with two of those five wins being by TKO.

Tyrell meanwhile comes into the cage off of a draw in her last fight, which will be just over a year ago by the time Cage Warriors 90 comes along.

Both McCann and Pimblett will be looking to put on a show for their home crowd.
Alexander Jacobsen and Lawrence Fitzpatrick will also do battle in the octagon on the 24th February in a lightweight bout.

Jacobsen comes into the fight off a submission loss to Chris Fishgold at Cage Warriors 88, while Lawrence Fitzpatrick, who has finished all of his professional fights by TKO or Submission, aims to take his record to 6-0 with a victory over the Dane.

Also on the card, Paull McBain takes on Azi Thomas at the Echo Arena in a featherweight contest. Thomas is undefeated in his last three fights, (won two and drawn one) and will look to return to winning ways after a draw against Pierre Botha, last time out.

Elliot Jenkins will fight Josh Abraham in another lightweight contest on the night. Jenkins comes in to the fight following a submission win at Cage Warriors Academy Northwest 1 against Pedro Perez, whilst Abraham will look to take his win streak up six in a row.
In the welterweight division, Mick Stanton looks for second win in a row against Matthew Bonner.

In the events only heavyweight clash of the evening, Shawn Kenny looks to beat Ruben Wolf.
Kenny looks to go 4-0 against Wolf, following a submission win over Darren Moore at International Combat Elite Fighting Championship 14, while Wolf looks to get back to winning ways following two successive defeats.

The event is set to be a belter of a show, with several fighters having something to prove, and I will be in attendance reporting on all fights as they go via my Twitter —@Cobleyreporting. Also, expect a full event report will be published after the event takes place.
