Shore is still undefeated thus far as a professional MMA fighter and that streak has already lasted over two years. Shore also had an extensive run as an amateur MMA fighter, winning twelve of twelve fights before turning pro in 2016.

Wiklacz has picked up a total of eight victories as a professional MMA fighter, but Wiklacz has yet to earn a victory by KO/TKO. Wiklacz also competed twice under the Absolute Championship Berkut banner, defeating Sebastian Przybysz, while suffering a defeat to Dukvaha Gralka.
Cage Warriors 97 takes place on Saturday, September 29 from the Ice Arena in Cardiff, Wales with Jack Shore and Jakub Wiklacz headlining. Fightful is going to be providing live coverage of the event, which will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.
