One of the biggest CWFC bouts of the year is all set to take place tomorrow as headliners Jim Wallhead and Danny Roberts (pictured) both successfully came in under the 171lbs limit at this afternoon’s weigh-ins.

The welterweight tilt tops a stacked card of action for Cage Warriors 68, the promotion’s seventh event of the year, at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

Returning to Cage Warriors following a four-year absence, ‘Judo’ Jimmy Wallhead weighed in at 169.3lbs, while up-and-coming prospect Danny ‘Hot Chocolate’ Roberts came in at 170.4lbs.

There was plenty of drama elsewhere, however, as a total of seven fighters failed to make weight, but all ten bouts are scheduled to go ahead nevertheless.
