Cage Warriors touched down in Manchester, England on Friday, for Cage Warriors 135 — the first of two back-to-back shows at the BEC Arena.

The main event of the first Manchester card featured the welterweight division in action, as Poland’s Daniel Skibinski, most recently having competed for UAE Warriors, looked to get back in the win column against Justin Burlinson. England’s own Burlinson was returning for the first time since a loss on Dana White’s Contender Series last year, the first defeat of his professional career.

UFC veteran Darren Stewart had been expected to compete on the Cage Warriors 135 card. However, opponent Carlos Antonio de Souza tested positive for COVID-19, resulting in the bout being pulled from the event.

Cage Warriors 135 goes down live on Friday, April 1, 2022 at the BEC Arena in Manchester, England, with a live stream of the card available via UFC Fight Pass. The action kicks off at 1PM ET. Full results can be found below.
