Cage Warriors 73: Ray vs. Warburton III

Cage Warriors 73 Newcastle

United Kingdom Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle

November-01-14
Cage Warriors return to the Metro Radio Arena, with the Steven Ray vs. Curt Warburton rubber match topping the bill.

Event Preview

Cage Warriors head back to Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena on November 1st, with the lightweight title fight between Steven Ray and Curt Warburton set to be the night's main event.

Ray (15-5) is the defending champion following his five-round victory over Warburton (13-5) last time out. However, their story didn't start there. Warburton defeated Ray back in 2013, also via decision, leaving them 1-1 in two close bouts.

Both men want to firmly put a line under the rivalry, and with the title on the line it will no doubt spur them on to try and finish emphatically in the rubber match.

Also announced for the card is a flyweight battle with title implications, as Damien Rooney aims to make 125lbs for the first time against Shaj Haque.

Rooney (10-3-1) has been mixing it with the UK and Ireland's elite for the last few years, and his entry at flyweight should really mix things up. Haque (5-1) has been impressive of late, defeating Martin McDonough and Mark Connor in his last two.

There are many more bouts to be announced. Stay tuned to www.facebook.com/YourMMA and @YourMMA on Twitter for more coverage.
