Wilkinson clinches submission bonus

THE ‘Submission of the Night’ bonus for Cage Warriors 48 has been awarded to Aaron Wilkinson after a Facebook poll of CWFC fans.

Wilkinson defeated Leigh Cohoon by rear-naked choke in the first round of their welterweight bout at the HMV Forum in London on Saturday.

His victory was one of four on the main card that came via submission, so Cage Warriors chiefs opted to give fans the chance to decide which one was most deserving of being awarded ‘Submission of the Night’.

Also in contention were John Phillips (defeated Chris Fields by guillotine choke), Danny Roberts (defeated Jack Mason by armbar) and Kris Edwards (defeated Brian Hyslop by armbar).

Wilkinson topped the poll with an overwhelming 56% of the votes, giving him a memorable start to his stint with Cage Warriors.

‘Fight of the Night’ honours went to Polish welterweights Piotr Ptasinski and Jacek Toczydlowski, whose three-round battle on the Facebook prelims ended in a unanimous decision victory for Ptasinski.
