The event takes place at Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales. The main card streams in North American on MMAjunkie.com (and worldwide on cagewarriors.tv) at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT) following prelims on Facebook at 2 p.m. ET.

In the headliner, featherweight champion Jim Alers (10-1), an American who’s won five consecutive Cage Warriors bouts, takes on Sweden’s Martin Svensson (12-3), who makes his promotional debut with seven victories in his past eight fights.
