Cage Warriors 60 to Feature Lightweight Tournament to Fill Conor McGregor’s Vacated Title

671

Cage Warriors 60 will feature a single-night four-man tournament to fill Conor McGregor recently vacated Cage Warriors lightweight title. The bracket will be comprised of Stevie Ray (12-4), Ivan Buchinger (23-4), Mick Sinclair (12-3), and Jason Ball (20-12). The pairings are expected to be announced soon.

The semifinal matches in the tournament will feature two five-minute rounds, with a third overtime round in the event of a draw. The finals will be a five round bout, similar to title fights.

McGregor recently vacated the title to sign with the UFC, leaving the promotion with no lightweight champion.

Cage Warriors 60 will take place on October 5 at the Forum in London, UK.
