London, England (November 28, 2012) – INJURIES have forced Cage Warriors officials to make several changes to the card for Cage Warriors 50, which takes place at Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall on Saturday, December 8. The highly anticipated featherweight meeting of Robert Whiteford and Chris Fishgold has been removed from the card and will not go ahead.
Whiteford was injured while training in the US with American Top Team. Cage Warriors sourced a suitable replacement but Fishgold then also sustained an injury and was subsequently ruled out of action.
As a result, the clash of Graham Turner and Nathan Beer will be promoted to the main card from the prelims.
Another change to the main card sees a new opponent for Denniston Sutherland after Mats Nilsson had to withdraw with an injury. Sutherland will now take on unbeaten Englishman Scott Askham.
On the undercard, Mark Connor will now fight Northern Irish prospect Andy Young instead of Niko Gjoka, while Rob McCrum steps in to replace James MacAlister against Alex Enlund at a catchweight of 140lbs.
