Cage Warriors Fighting Championship will return to Manchester, England. The upcoming Cage Warriors 112 event ,which will go down at the Manchester BEC Arena on March 7, will be main evented by a bantamweight title clash between champion Jack Cartwright and challenger Manuel Bilic.
The undefeated Cartwright (7-0) made a huge statement in the CW bantamweight division when he captured the gold after winning the one-night 4-men tournament at CW - Unplugged 2. On the same night, he smashed Scott Malone in just 49 seconds in the first stanza of their semi-finale encounter; then, he overcame Marko Kovacevic at the 3:31 mark of the opening round. The defending champion had no issues in hitting the 135-pound weight limit.
Bilic (13-6) is coming off at the most important fight in his career riding a two-bout winning streak. In his latest appearances, “Sugar” submitted Hasan Chamzatov, and before that he put Bryan Creighton to sleep back at CW 101. Bilic looked good on the scale as weighed at 134.4 pounds.
Cage Warriors 112 airs live on UFC Fight Pass on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 4 p.m. ET.
