Jesus, Frank Mir, please, please hang up the gloves now. You got a win, just retire. Big Country's way, way past his prime as well, either guy wouldn't stand a chance against even a vaguely competent fighter even in Bellator. Mir has looked like he's fighting through syrup his last few fights, his only vague hope of a win is fighting the lowest of the has-been's. Don't pull a BJ Penn.

Slightly embarrasing!. CageWarriors 110 Chris Fields leads his fighter Omran Chabaan out and Fields and corner team take their seats a bit early just as their fighter is about to go through the pat down. At this point Chabaan realises he hasnt his gum shield and needs to go over and tap Fields on the shoulder to make him aware!. Fields is shocked and legs it back to the dressing room for the gum shield!.

EDIT: Spoiler: Omran Chabaan Wins!

Have Europe a different version of UFC FightPass than the US?
Im watching UFC Fightpass stream but its just replays and not Cage Warriors as advertised?

Yeah that steam only ever plays replays, you never get live cards on it. I've been trying to get the cage Warriors card myself with no joy.

There were some good wins for a few of the Irish lads on Cage Warriors last night. PA Lahane on the amateur undercard, John Mitchell in his pro debut on the main card, Ian Garry to go 3 and 0 with a first round sub and Rhys McKee with a first round TKO off of a jab which floored his opponent!

Ian Garry is trying to push for a spot on the London card in 2 weeks time of anyone drops out.

I'd like to see Rhys get another couple of wins under his belt before there is any talk of moving to the UFC. I'd be surprised if they don't pick him up the next time they have a show this side of Europe.

John Mitchell looked really good. Calm and composed, picked his shots beautifully, wasn't goaded into the war that Nolan wanted. Very impressed by him.

Ian Garry is a superstar in the making. The atmosphere in the arena for his fight was insane. And a lovely finish from him too.

Really enjoyable night, Cage Warriors had the place looking as well as they could, great atmosphere and great fights. Hopefully they're back in the summer.

I take it you were at it?

They've just announced 3 more Irish dates. Back in Cork in July and Belfast in May and September.

I'd be shocked if we don't see Garry in the UFC in the future.

It's still early days yet, he only has 3 pro fights. There are tougher tests ahead with CW and if he keeps progressing as he has done to date then he will definitely be UFC bound alright.

What the story with the hype behind this guy after only 3 fights?
Genuinely curious, I haven't seen him fight yet.

He's big, looks the part, and talks well.

I think people are glossing over the smack he took last week. For a guy who's a supposed stand up specialist he looked for a sec that he was going to get KO'd. Maybe I'm being a tad harsh here, but I'm getting a bit sick of the hype around him already. Seems Aaron Pico-esque imo. Sure he could be great, but you simply can never forecast an MMA fighters career after 3 fights, and those who are doing it should know better.

I was at CW Cork last week, great show. Leaves Bellator for dust in overall experience imo.
