Cage Warriors 79: A Review of the latest Fight Night in Newport

This weekend the WePlay team packed up their gear and headed down to the Newport Centre in Newport, South Wales, to cover another huge weekend of cage fighting at Cage Warriors 79.

We were ringside all night live tweeting the events of the evening and providing social media coverage to make sure fans at home were able to stay up to date on all of the action.

Welsh fans went home happy at the 79th instalment of Cage Warriors this past Saturday. Jack “The Tank” Shore scored a victory on home soil against Eddie Pobivanez, Shore’s T.K.O in the second round continues his unbeaten professional record.

The highlight of the night came from Dean Trueman with a stunning knockout early in the first round. Trueman scored the fastest knockout of his career against Frenchman Arnold Quero, just 12-seconds into the match.

Martin Svensson emerged victorious over Scott Clist in the main event of the night. The swede’s victory ended Scott Clist’s 3 match win streak.
