CAGE WARRIORS 59 takes place this Saturday, September 14, at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales.

Welsh fans are in for a treat as their capital city will play host to a four-man tournament to be contested on the night in order to crown a new CWFC bantamweight champion.

Home favourites Kris Edwards and Brett Johns are joined in the tournament by Englishman James Pennington and Swede David Haggstrom, with each fighter going in search of the two wins required to take home the Cage Warriors gold.

Also topping the bill as the night’s co-main event, Jim Alers puts his CWFC featherweight strap on the line for the first time when he takes on Martin Svensson.

Tickets, priced from just £25 (plus booking fee) can be purchased HERE, while a limited number - subject to availability - will be available at the Motorpoint Arena on the night. Doors open at 5.30pm, with the first of two amateur undercard fights scheduled for 6.20pm

Three prelims - including the bantamweight tournament semi-finals - will be available to watch live around the world and free of charge on Facebook at 7.45pm local time, followed by the six-bout main card at 9pm local time. Find broadcast details for your region below.
