Get your teeth into this one.
Graham Turner V Danny Batten for the Cage Warriors Belt Lebanon Feb 11th.
3 days later Danny pulls out, I'm left with no other choice but to take the belt back and put it up for grabs.
( belt not been defended since 2005 )
10 days ago
Graham Turner V Robbie Olivier for the World Title in Lebanon Feb 11th
Contracts drawn up and sent out.
Last night Robbie pulls out, because he cant get time off work ?
Then this morning Robbie Olivier announced fighting Feb 26th.
A World Title shot on LIVE TV across the world .......... rejected to fight on a smaller platform ?
Correct me if Im wrong but Fighters , you train for Opportunities like this right ?
You want to be seen ?
And when it comes to cant get time of work ?
( I would beleive that but I have 5 firefighters working for me and they seem to be able to change shift at ease )
Does noone want to face Graham Turner ?
Is he that good ?
Actions speak louder then words....#No23
Good grief some people wont take even if its handed on a plate.

Slighlty off topic, as you seam to be putting on great shows all over the world have you considered a competition for a fan or two to win an all expenses trip to one of them like the UFC do?
Surprised at this.... maybe not so much on Danny batten. Not defending belt in 6 years, u gotta guess that something ain't right. But on robbie, can't speak on his reason for pulling out obviously but surprised he took a fight (some would argue an easier fight) so soon after without discussing it with cw team.

Ouch....that sucks. Not gonna question the motives of the guys pulling out here, but that is a shitty situation. Alan Omer would be ace, or Martin Svensson or Salovaara (although I know these will be avenues you guys have no doubt already explored).
Waiting for somebody to say it....
Lol.... but is he though?

Perhaps Lebanon might be a factor here...

Sucks but im sure some one will step up.
It's maybe not the best country to be going to but still it's an excellent opportunity. Looks like no one wants a piece of Graham Turner.
Seems to me that Davie G wants it, just saying....
