N'Doye Out Of Cage Warriors Fight Night 2 Bout With Saville

Cage Warriors are seeking a replacement for the Jordan card, as N'Doye is forced to withdraw with injury.

Many were eagerly anticipating the Cage Warriors Fight Night 2 clash between undefeated Frenchman Jean N'Doye and highly-ranked European bantamweight James "Scraps" Saville but the bout, scheduled to be fought at featherweight, is now off the bill due to an N'Doye injury.

N'Doye has looked impressive in his last two outings, stopping tough opponents Daniel "Denzil" Thomas in Wales and Dan Hope on the inaugural CWFC Fight Night card. With these wins he extended his record to 5-0 and looked a handful for anybody at lightweight. However, he made the call to drop to the lower weight bracket despite his success, and his featherweight debut was set for September 8th with many predicting big things.

YourMMA.tv has learned that a head injury has forced N'Doye off the card, and this leaves Saville facing a late change in opponent.

Saville will remain on the card and Cage Warriors are close to securing a replacement for the bout in Amman next Thursday.

The rising star beat Leigh Remedios in his last MMA bout to stake a claim as one of the best bantamweights in Europe, but he is also known to fight higher than 135lbs and didn't hesitate when offered N'Doye at 145lbs. With ten professional bouts and an extensive amateur resume to his credit, it's hard to forget that "Scraps" is just twenty-one, and the youngster is holding out for his opponent to be named for next week.

Cage Warriors Fight Night 2 in Amman, Jordan will be held at the Al-Hussein Youth City Boxing Arena on September 8th, and will be headlined by Arni Isaksson vs. Gael Grimaud for the welterweight title. Fellow 170lbers Danny Mitchell and Cathal Pendred will also battle for contention on the card.
