Cage Warriors Announce New Policies For Future Shows

19/05/2011

The Director of the Cage Warriors fighting Championship Graham Boylan spoke earlier this week to the UK based website YourMMA.tv. As he continues to push the long standing UK MMA organisation further by instituting “US Commission Style” procedures to help end the “Wild West” nature of UK MMA.

This procedures will see the following happen at CWFC events:

  • Two qualified cutmen at each event, so unqualified cornermen don’t have to accept responsibility.
  • Three referees on the night.
  • Head official Marc Goddard and head cutman John Tandy to oversee proceedings.
  • No Vaseline in changing rooms; all to be applied at the cage door.
  • Official in the changing rooms at all times to oversee what is going on.
  • Vigilance on fighter safety procedure e.g. a ‘no fight’ policy for fighters getting knocked out or stopped within a certain timeframe.
  • Hands wrapped by official and signed off.
  • By 2012, having qualified MMA medics and working to bring in bloods and MRIs for all fighters.
  • Seminars by head officials to educate other shows and promoters.
