McVeigh and Doolan Make Weight At Cage Force 6
The Cage Warriors Bantamweight World Champion Paul “Metabolic” McVeigh (12-4-0) and his team mate James Doolan weighed-in earlier today in Tokyo, Japan for their bouts at Cage Force 6 on Saturday at the Differ Ariake arena.
McVeigh who is managed by Warrior Promotions (Fighter Management) Limited will be taking on former Shooto Champion Masahiro Oishi (17-9-7) in the Cage Force Bantamweight Tournament Quarter Finals. McVeigh is known for his exciting and dynamic performances which has seen him capture both the Cage Warriors Featherweight and Bantamweight Titles.
McVeigh is undefeated in the Bantamweight division and is on a four bout win streak, with his last win coming at Cage Warriors “Enter The Rough House 4” in October last year when he defeated the BJJ Black Belt Anderson Pereira by submission last October. Whilst Oishi is a 15 year veteran of the sport and has faced some of the biggest names in his weight class during that time, with only one loss in his last 10 bouts, the 39 year old Japanese fighter should pose a formidable test to the young Scottish based Irishman.
Whilst James Doolan will be taking on Naoya Uematsu (14-7-2) in a non-tournament Bantamweight bout. Doolan who currently holds a Scottish Muay Thai Title has worked his way through the Scottish and Irish MMA scene, having impressed many with his aggressive stand-up style. Whilst Uematsu is a 10 year veteran of the Japanese Shooto circuit and will be making his first appearance in the Bantamweight division tomorrow night.
The event also features a Lightweight Title Bout between the Cage Warriors Showdown Lightweight Tournament Winner Tomonari Kanomata as he looks to capture the Cage Force Lightweight Title against the rising Japanese standout Mizuto Hirota.
