Video: Cage Warriors 56 preview and full fight card for July 6 event


As a reminder, Cage Warriors returns next week with an event you can watch on MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) prior to UFC 162. Cage Warriors 56 takes place July 6 at The Forum in London. The main card kicks off at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT (9 p.m. BST local time). In the headliner, Bola Omoyele (6-1) meets veteran welterweight Vincent del Guerra (20-8) in a bout that marks both fighters’ promotional debut.

Omoyele recently appeared on “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes,” where he suffered a submission loss to Manny Rodriguez in the quarterfinal round. The English fighter now returns to pro competition, where he’s won five straight fights, all via stoppage.

He takes on del Guerra, a French fighter who’s won three straight and seven of his past eight. The 23-year-old has a significant experience advantage over the 31-year-old Omoyele despite being eight years his junior.

For more on their fight, as well as other main-card matchups, check out the video above.
