It’s fight week in Manchester! Cage Warriors – Europe’s Leading MMA Organisation – returns to the BEC Arena this Friday night for CW 160!
In the evening’s main event, two of Europe’s top featherweights collide as England’s James Hendin looks to continue his second run at the 145lb title against Swedish wrecking machine Tobias Harila.
Hendin, known for his heavy hands and crushing grappling output, is a former international Judo player and has been involved in the martial arts since the age of four.
Harila established a reputation as one of his country’s most tenured amateurs before making the switch to the pro ranks in 2018, and is famed for his relentless forward pressure.
The bout will have massive implications for the 145lb title picture.
Elsewhere on the card, team Next Generation are taking over, with surging prospects Nathan Fletcher and Luke Riley looking to take the next steps on their journeys as they face Thomas Bryan and Alexander Loof respectively.
Also part of the Next Gen takeover, Adam Cullen looks to bounce back from his first professional defeat as he meets Brazil’s Amaury Junior.
