Cage Warriors 50 Adds Whiteford-Fishgold, Wilkinson-Johnston


AARON WILKINSON will return to action at Cage Warriors 50 next month to face top Scottish prospect Alan Johnston in a welterweight bout.

Cage Warriors 50 will take place at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow on Saturday, December 8, as the organisation hosts a show in Scotland for the first time.

Wilkinson (10-5) signed a five-fight contract with Cage Warriors earlier this year and debuted for the organisation with a first-round victory against Leigh Cohoon at Cage Warriors 48: London back in July, earning a Submission of the Night bonus in the process.

The 25-year-old Wolfslair/SBG member, who hails from Manchester, came to prominence in 2010 as a member of Team Koscheck on The Ultimate Fighter 12 and subsequently fought once for the UFC, suffering a loss to current UFC competitor Cody McKenzie.

Johnston (6-1-1), who fights out of the Griphouse/Dinky Ninjas camp, will be making his first appearance on a Cage Warriors card having won six of his last seven bouts.

Ranked as one of the UK's top 20 welterweights, 21-year-old Johnston's most recent victory came in June courtesy of a stunning KO of highly-rated German welterweight Jessin Ayari.

Cage Warriors 50 will also feature the likes of top Scottish-based pair Paul McVeigh and Graham Turner, with more fights to be announced in the coming days.



ROBERT WHITEFORD and Chris Fishgold will square off in a featherweight bout when Cage Warriors visits Scotland for the first time on Saturday, December 8

The pair will make their respective debuts for the organisation at Cage Warriors 50, which takes place at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow.

Whiteford (9-1), who hails from Armadale in Scotland, will be fighting for the first time since his stunning first-round KO victory against top-ten-ranked European featherweight Martin Svensson in September.

The 29-year-old, now ranked as Europe's number three featherweight, is on a nine-fight win streak and also holds a notable victory over Cage Warriors-contracted star Liam James.

Fishgold (7-0-0), who signed a five-fight contract with Cage Warriors this year, has established himself as a potential future star since making his professional debut two years ago.

The 20-year-old, a member of the Next Generation camp, has picked up wins on prominent UK shows such as OMMAC and BAMMA.

His last outing saw him secure a second-round submission victory against Andy De-Vent just over 12 months ago. Six of Fishgold's seven wins have come via submission.

Cage Warriors 50 will also feature the likes of former UFC competitor Aaron Wilkinson, as well as top Scottish-based pair Paul McVeigh and Graham Turner.

Mats Nilsson and Denniston Sutherland will face each other in the Scottish capital after both fighters were successful in their debut Cage Warriors appearances earlier this year.

Nilsson (9-2-1), who hails from Helsingborg in Sweden, scored an impressive second-round submission win against two-time UFC veteran Tommy Speer at CWFC Fight Night 3 in Beirut back in February. That win earned the 28-year-old a five-fight Cage Warriors contract.

A black belt in judo, Nilsson is currently eighth in the European middleweight rankings. His only losses – both by decision – have come against top Finnish pair Tor Troeng and Timo Suhonen.

Sutherland (18-8) disposed of Brett Sizeland by first-round TKO at July's Cage Warriors 48 in London. The 39-year-old went on to comprehensively defeat Leeroy Barnes by unanimous decision in September.

A Jamaican fighter based in England, Sutherland is ranked 11th in the UK and has recorded other notable victories over Cage Warriors veterans John Phillips and Jack Mason, as well as former UFC middleweight Mark Weir.

Cage Warriors 50 will also feature the likes top Scottish-based pair Paul McVeigh and Graham Turner, with more fights set to be announced this week.


MAIN CARD

Robert Whiteford v Chris Fishgold
Aaron Wilkinson v Alan Johnston
Mats Nilsson v Denniston Sutherland

Turner-Beer Confirmed for Cage Warriors 50 on Dec. 8


TWO of the UK's top featherweights will collide on the Cage Warriors 50 prelims when the organisation visits Scotland for the first time next month.

Graham Turner will take on Nathan Beer at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall on Saturday, December 8, a bout that will stream live around the world on Facebook.

Turner (20-7), who's ranked sixth in the UK, will be aiming for his third consecutive win having recently captured titles on two separate promotions.

The 24-year-old Scot defeated Adam Stevenson in September to clinch the Vision FC lightweight title, before adding the On Top featherweight strap by submitting Gianluca Scottoli last month.

A member of the Dinky Ninjas camp, Turner has won 12 of his last 14 bouts, with the only losses coming at the hands of the UFC's Akira Corassani and Cage Warriors veteran Matteus Lahdesmaki.

Beer (13-4), a native of Cwmbran in Wales, will be appearing on a Cage Warriors card for the first time since making his professional debut in 2008.

Ranked 13th in the UK, the 35-year-old defeated two-time UFC veteran Dave Hill to win the UCMMA featherweight title last year. Beer is also a former Shock 'N' Awe title holder.

Reis Meets Roddy at Cage Warriors 50 Live on Fight Network


SCOTLAND will host an intriguing bantamweight bout when Cage Warriors makes its first ever trip to the country next month.

Wilson Reis and Owen Roddy will meet on the main card at Cage Warriors 50 at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall on Saturday, December 8.

Reis (15-4), who hails from Sao Paulo in Brazil, fought nine times for Bellator between 2009 and 2011, clocking up a 5-4 record in the organisation.

The 27-year-old BJJ black belt, who's a former EliteXC bantamweight champion, holds notable wins over current UFC competitors Henry Martinez and Bryan Caraway, as well as former Bellator bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky.

A BJJ world champion as a brown belt in 2004, Reis fights out of Philadelphia, USA, and is on a three-fight win streak.

Roddy (11-3), who signed an exclusive five-fight contract with Cage Warriors earlier this year, will drop to bantamweight for his debut with the organisation.

A member of the renowned SBG Ireland camp alongside current CWFC champions Conor McGregor and Chris Fields, the 29-year-old has been victorious in his last seven bouts.

Currently ranked as one of Europe's top ten featherweights, Roddy's last outing saw him secure a unanimous decision victory over UFC veteran Shannon Gugerty.

More exciting Cage Warriors 50 bouts are still to be announced.

McVeigh-Hempleman Set for Cage Warriors 50 Headliner


THE main event at Cage Warriors 50 will see Paul McVeigh return to CWFC action against American opposition. Cage Warriors 50, which takes place at the Kelvin Hall on Saturday, December 8, will mark the first time the organisation has held a show in Scotland.

McVeigh (18-7), a former CWFC featherweight and bantamweight champion, will headline the event in his hometown of Glasgow. The Irish-born jiu-jitsu black belt will take on rising star Brandon Hempleman in a 130lbs catchweight bout, as McVeigh begins the gradual cut to flyweight.

Thirty-year-old McVeigh will be fighting for the first time since a decision loss to the UFC's Erik Perez last December. The former TUF contestant, who made his CWFC debut in 2003, is unbeaten in his eight fights under the Cage Warriors banner, the last of which saw him secure a second-round TKO victory against Andreas Bernhard in February 2011.

Hempleman (8-1), who hails from Idaho, is on a five-fight win streak and most recently disposed of 36-12 veteran Olly Bradstreet. Rated as one of the most promising fighters in the US in the bantamweight division, 25-year-old Hempleman fights out of Alliance Jiu Jitsu in Twin Falls.

The Cage Warriors 50 main card will be live on MMA Junkie at 9pm local time on Saturday, December 8, following prelims on Facebook.

Whiteford-Fishgold Off; Sutherland, Connor, Enlund New Foes


INJURIES have forced Cage Warriors officials to make several changes to the card for Cage Warriors 50, which takes place at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall on Saturday, December 8, and airs live on Fight Network.

The highly anticipated featherweight meeting of Robert Whiteford and Chris Fishgold has been removed from the card and will not go ahead.

Whiteford was injured while training in the US with American Top Team. Cage Warriors sourced a suitable replacement but Fishgold then also sustained an injury and was subsequently ruled out of action.

As a result, the clash of Graham Turner and Nathan Beer will be promoted to the main card from the prelims.

Another change to the main card sees a new opponent for Denniston Sutherland after Mats Nilsson had to withdraw with an injury. Sutherland will now take on unbeaten Englishman Scott Askham.

On the undercard, Mark Connor will now fight Northern Irish prospect Andy Young instead of Niko Gjoka, while Rob McCrum steps in to replace James MacAlister against Alex Enlund at a catchweight of 140lbs.

MAIN CARD

Paul McVeigh v Brandon Hempleman
Wilson Reis v Owen Roddy
Aaron Wilkinson v Alan Johnston
Denniston Sutherland v Scott Askham
Graham Turner v Nathan Beer

PRELIMINARY CARD

Rob McCrum v Alex Enlund
Mark Connor v Andy Young
