The fight would have happened today...
MMA Junkie reports that hours before the event, Mateusz Strzelczyk (6-3) was pulled from his 178-pound catchweight fight with Danny Roberts (9-1) at Cage Warriors 62 after he failed his pre-fight medical exam. The fight was set to close the preliminary card, which happens at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England. It is streaming live and free on MMA Junkie as of 4 PM ET/1 PM PT (9 PM BST local time). International viewers can watch it on the official Cage Warriors website. Other preliminary fights were shown on Facebook at 2 PM ET.
