Cage Warriors 55 will host a one day four man flyweight tournament in June. The winner will be the promotion’s inaugural flyweight champion.
“With the number of promising flyweights in the U.K. and Europe increasing, it’s time these guys had a worthy title to aim for, and I think this tournament will provide that opportunity,” said Ian Dean, Cage Warriors matchmaker. “The winner of this tournament will be a worthy and legitimate titleholder in an up-and-coming and competitive division.”
The participants will be announced in the coming weeks.
The tournament will follow different rules than past Cage Warriors fights. The opening features two five-minute rounds. If there’s a tie a third round will be added. The finals will be contested under championship rules, meaning five five-minute rounds.
Cage Warriors 55 takes place June 1 from The Helix in Ireland. The main card streams for free at MMA Junkie.
