Last UFC fight of the month ends in blood bath
Cage Warriors 113 went down last night in Manchester, England. The promotion’s CEO Graham Boylan had worked tirelessly trying to save his event, while also offering fighters who had their UFC London bouts cancelled a platform to compete on. UFC fighters Darren Stewart and Bartosz Fabiniski, who had other opponents planned, were matched up at Cage Warriors 113 in a bout that ended in a blood bath.
As presumed beforehand, Fabinski looked to take the fight to the mat, while the Brit Stewart preferred to keep the fight standing. In the second round, while using defensive grappling, Stewart landed a hard, slicing elbow that opened up a huge gash on the Pole’s head. Blood poured out, covering both fighters and causing the doctor to work hard between rounds to ensure the fight could continue to a third.

Stewart had some opening success in the final frame, but elected to shoot for a takedown. While he did land in top position Fabinski, being a skilled grappler, reversed the position. This led to him eventually getting top position and continuing scoring ground and pound.
In the end, Fabinski earned a unanimous decision win, with a clean sweep of 30-27 scores. The Pole has now bounced back rom his only UFC loss, and now holds a 4-1 record in the octagon.

While graphic, this is far from the most bloody fight witnessed in Cage Warriors. At Cage Warriors 106 last year, the welterweight title was at stake as Ross Houston faced Nicolas Dalby. The fight quickly became a bloody affair, with both fighters gushing blood. The two combatants bled so much, in fact, that the referee was forced to stop the fight due to the canvas being too slippery from excessive blood.
