While UFC Fight Night London isn’t happening in its original form this Saturday, a card is still airing from London this Friday in the form of Cage Warriors 113.
A total of seven bouts have been pulled from the UFC Fight Night London card and Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan would like to hold those fights at Cage Warriors 113.
“We have been trying to save a couple of the UFC London fights and have them compete at the show as contracted UFC fights on Cage Warriors,” Boylan said to MMA Junkie. “I’m just trying to help the fighters not miss out on competing. It may or may not happen, as it’s a fast-moving situation and trying to pull all the moving parts together is super tricky.”
There is no word yet as to whether or not Boylan has been in contact with the UFC to have some of the canceled bouts at Cage Warriors 113.
The upcoming Cage Warriors 113 card could be affected by the coronavirus in the way that the virus has affected so many other events, but Boylan says Cage Warriors 113 will happen either way.
“Cage Warriors is happening,” he said. “Behind closed doors, if need be.”
Cage Warriors 113 takes place on Friday, March 20 from the Indigo At The 02 in London, England with Morgan Charriere and Darko Banovic headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
