Manzolo (15-5-0) is currently undefeated under the Cage Warriors banner, having defeated Dan Edwards and Bola Omoyele. Manzolo is returning to Cage Warriors after a two-plus year absence, as his last bout in the promotion came at Cage Warriors 74 in November 2014.

Randolph (0-0-0) is not only making his Cage Warriors debut in this fight, but his professional MMA debut as well. Randolph won two of five fights during his time as an amateur, with those victories coming over Joel Morgan and Patrick McNally.

O’Rourke (0-1-0) made his professional MMA debut earlier this year at Cage Legacy 2 and was defeated by Arann Maguire. O’Rourke also won five fights as an amateur, including four appearances in the Battlezone MMA promotion.

McCourt (0-0-0) is going to be making both her Cage Warriors and professional MMA debut in this encounter. McCourt also won the IMMAF Women’s Featherweight Tournament, defeating Julia Dorny in the finals.

Zoua (0-0-0) is like McCourt in that she is going to be making her professional MMA and Cage Warriors debut in this fight. Zoua was also a judo Olympian in France. She has no amateur MMA experience to speak of as well.

Cage Warriors 85 takes place on Saturday, June 24 from the 02 Academy in Bournemouth, England with Jason Radcliffe and Oskar Piechota headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
