As a reminder, live and free MMA returns to MMAjunkie.com on Saturday with Cage Warriors 60.
Cage Warriors 60 takes place at The Forum in London. The main card, which includes a single-night lightweight tourney final, streams live in North American on MMAjunkie.com following Facebook prelims, which feature the opening round/semifinals. The main-card stream kicks off at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT).
Officials today finalized the card with a late addition to the lineup: middleweight Leeroy Barnes (12-11) vs. highly touted Polish prospect Kacper Karski (4-1) in a main-card bout.
The addition of Barnes to the card is good news for the fighter, who had three other scheduled opponents back out of the event.
“Leeroy was on this card from Day One, but unfortunately, each opponent we had lined up for him fell through,” Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan stated. “But due to the hard work of our matchmaker Ian Dean, we’ve managed to find a good opponent for Leeroy. Better late than never, and I’m expecting this to be a very interesting fight.”
The full 13-bout lineup includes:
MAIN CARD (MMAjunkie.com, 4 p.m. ET)
PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 2:45 p.m. ET)
PRELIMINARY CARD (Untelevised, 1:30 p.m. ET)
