CW92: Nathaniel Wood thrives as Paddy Pimblett signs new deal
Another sensational Cage Warriors event is officially in the books, and we here at Sportskeeda were live in attendance to see the whole thing unfold. After the prelims and Main Card 1 concluded the anticipation was at an all-time high as the final four fights drew ever closer.
We'd already seen a series of high profile submissions and knockouts throughout the evening, but as it turns out, we were only just getting started. Dean Trueman and Corrin Eaton got the 9 pm card underway with a back and forth encounter, as Trueman continued to turn some heads with a decision victory.
Next up was The Prospect Jack Shore, who faced one of his toughest challenges yet in the form of veteran Vaughan Lee. The Welshman didn't quite manage to get the finish he desired, but he did improve his record as many fans continue to dub him the brightest European youngster in all of mixed martial arts.
Craig White lit up the co-main event with a somewhat surprising win over Alex Montagnani, proving that his amusing entrance theme wasn't the only impressive thing about his game.
Then came the main event as the fan favorite Nathaniel Wood stepped into the cage once again, and as you'd expect, he didn't disappoint with what can only be described as a sensational one-punch knockout victory over Lucas Iovine. The fans were chanting 'UFC' following the fight, and after that kind of display, we can't say we disagree.
The night also included the announcement of Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett being confirmed as the headliner for September's Cage Warriors 96 card in Liverpool, which all but rules him out of a spot on the UFC card in the city at the end of May. On the contrary, Meatball Molly McCann appeared before the media to make her case for being a part of the Echo Arena event for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
With each and every event Cage Warriors continues to prove why it's the top promotion in all of Europe, and with Paddy The Baddy's return being on the horizon, things are only going to get better.
