Cage Warriors 106 Recap on Newsome MMA

On Saturday June 29th, Cage Warriors held their biggest ever card, Cage Warriors 106: Night of Champions, which saw not one, not two but six title fights on the card plus some stellar fights on the undercard as well. The night was full of shocks, controversy and awesome performances, and Newsome MMA had coverage of it all on fight night with Kieran Cobley heading down to the Eventim Apollo to catch all the action. This event recap will cover the chosen featured fight from Newsome MMA along with the usual Newsome MMA Performance Awards. There will also be a full list of the official results at the bottom of this article too.

Featured fight: Ross Houston vs. Nicolas Dalby

If you watched this fight live, you already know why this is the featured fight. Houston was set to defend the welterweight title he won at Birmingham last year for the first time against former welterweight champion and UFC veteran, Dalby. Dalby entered the cage as the interim champion after beating Alex Lohore in Copenhagen back in March. This fight wouldn’t just be for a title though, with the winner being more than likely to recieve a UFC call up. The action started out fast and frantic, with both men coming out with every intention of finishing the fight. Houston looked to grab the advantage initially, as a nasty elbow strike thrown by the man from Scotland landed inch perfectly, slicing Dalby open in the very early stages. Dalby is a true warrior though and the cut didn’t phase him in the second. A hard right hand broke Houston’s nose and Dalby jumped on this chance, keeping ground control over Houston for a large part of the round. By the start of round three, the cage no longer resembled a fighting arena, instead, it looked like the worlds goriest slip ‘n’ slide. Neither fighter was able to stand on the leaked blood and the fight was becoming too dangerous because of it which forced Marc Goddard to end the fight midway through round three. This proved to be a popular decision, as the fight no longer resembled combat, instead looking like some bad (and very bloody) comedy sketch. The no contest meant Houston kept the undisputed belt but both fighters acknowledged that they want to run this again at UFC Copenhagen in September.
