Originally planned for Stockholm on Aug. 23, Cage Warriors 71 will take place Aug. 22 in Amman, after facing issues with the Swedish Mixed Martial Arts Federation (SMMAF). The change of venue and date for CWFC 71 has resulted in changes to several of the originally-planned bouts for Cage Warriors’ tenth event of 2014, however Cage Warriors officials have managed to bring up a super exciting card for the Arab crowds featuring local talents Jarrah AL-SILAWI, Ahmad IBRAHIM ALY, and Wael KORKED. The event will also showcase the best up-and-coming talent in MMA with 4 amateur bouts that will kick-off the event.
Cage Warriors 71 will be headlined by 185lbs champion Jack Hermansson and challenger Deyan Topalski who will battle it out for the CWFC middleweight world title.
Swedish fighter Hermansson (8-2), (5-0 CWFC), has secured his title fight at Cage Warriors Fight Night 69 back in June when he submitted Norman Paraisy in the 4th round.
On the other hand, 31-year-old Bulgarian striker and M-1 fighter Topalski (11-2) who is riding a 3 fight wining streak, has managed to finish 7 of his fights before the bell, 6 of which came via knockouts!
