CWFC fans who were unhappy over the recent USA event where 2 of the 4 UK vs USA scheduled bouts were cancelled on the night will be pleased to learn that at least one of the missing fights is back on.

As Warrior Promotions have at their own expense organised for the controversial Hardy vs Reiner bout to be staged at the upcoming Enter the Rough House 6 in Nottingham UK on April 19th

Hardy was already scheduled to fight and face Mattias Awad at the event. Awad has kindly agreed to change at the last moment and he will now fight ‘Judo’ Jim Wallhead, another Rough House veteran & Warrior Promotions fighter.

Andy Lillis, Fight Director of Cage Warriors commented ‘this was probably the easiest match to make given how much these two fighters want to get in the cage together - all we had to do was pay!’

Thanks also to Mattias Awad who graciously swapped opponents so late in the card and we hope everyone attending and viewing the event gets treated to a great night of MMA action’.

Hardy & Reiner were sorely disappointed on the night of March 29th when the final two bouts of the evening were cancelled due to circumstances beyond the promoter’s control. This also affected the Winner vs Roddy bout and caused much gnashing of teeth from the UK fans and fighters who had come a long way for half a card.

It will be confirmed later whether this fight will be an official title bout for the vacant Cage Warriors Fighting Championship Welterweight Belt - when asked if it would be for a title, Hardy, already Light Welterweight Champion quipped ‘I hope so, then I can have two, one for each shoulder’.
