Previously scheduled to fight at UFC London, John Phillips and Dusko Todorovic will now meet at Cage Warriors 113 which takes place behind closed doors in London on Friday night.
“We have been trying to save a couple of the UFC London fights and have them compete at the show as contracted UFC fights on Cage Warriors,” Boylan said. “I’m just trying to help the fighters not miss out on competing. It may or may not happen, as it’s a fast-moving situation and trying to pull all the moving parts together is super tricky.”
One day later and middleweights John Philips and Dusko Todorovic have agreed to go ahead with their fight under a different promotional banner according the Cage Warriors boss.
This morning he announced via Twitter that the upcoming event would be closed to the public before telling fans about the good news, he said.
