On Saturday, May 3, Cage Warriors Fighting Championship hosted Cage Warriors 68: Liverpool from the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

In the night’s main event, “Judo” Jim Wallhead returned to the promotion for the first time in four years to take on fellow Englishman Danny “Hot Chocolate” Roberts in a welterweight contest. Wallhead’s resume included 15 previous appearances with the promotion, which launched him to stints with Bellator MMA and BAMMA. He returned to the promotion where his career started to take on one of England’s most promising prospects in Roberts. Roberts entered the cage riding a four-fight winning streak.

The co-main event featured an intriguing featherweight battle as Bellator and Sengoku veteran Ronnie Mann welcomed Brazilian Marcelo Costa to the Cage Warriors cage. Mann had scored back-to-back wins since returning to his native England after having mixed results in six appearances under the Bellator banner. Costa, meanwhile, was last in action in September when he earned a split decision win over UFC veteran Damacio Page.

In all, the event featured 14 bouts. The professional portion of the preliminary card kicked off at 2:30 p.m ET (7:30 p.m. local time) with a single, un-aired bout. Three additional contests followed on Facebook at at 2:30 p.m ET, with the six-fight main card streaming live on MMA Junkie starting at 4 p.m. ET.
