I always say. Cage Warriors is a factory of frauds and overrated warriors.
UFC loves them only for their British nationality

Anyone that faded Hardwick, well done.

I felt like he came in with a 5 round pace, rather than a 3 round pace and it cost him.  I'm not sure if he was nervous or if the first trip across the pond affected him, but great game plan and execution by Al-Selwady.

I got three fights perfect but man did I ever miss the first fight and the last one.  Not a terrible card at the end of the day, but I was very surprised by Hardwick's performance.
