Last weekend was a hectic couple of days of combat sports action. If you were one of the fortunate few who peeped DREAM 17 overnight, It's Showtime on Saturday afternoon, and rode the wave right into the evening with UFC 135 and Bellator 51, I salute you. This coming weekend won't be as jam-packed full of action, but we've done our best to provide our readers with an excuse to blow an entire Saturday afternoon and evening viewing some of the best mixed martial arts' action around.
Our solution? Cage Warriors 44. The event will air live right here at BloodyElbow.com from the HMV Forum in London, England on Saturday, October 1st at 4 PM ET. The main card will feature co-headlining bouts as undefeated prospect Joseph Duffy (10-0) and Swiss-born fighter Ivan Musardo (17-6-1) tangle for the vacant lightweight title. UFC veteran Brian Foster (15-5), who has been given clearance by the UFC to take a fight outside the organization, will battle Jack Mason (17-8) in the second headlining bout of the evening.
The rest of the card is shaping up as follows:
Joseph Duffy (10-0) vs. Ivan Musardo (17-6-1)
Brian Foster (15-5) vs. Jack Mason (17-8)
Ashleigh Grimshaw (10-7-1) vs. Graham Turner (17-6)
