The Cage Warriors promotion headed to Jordan for Cage Warriors Fight Night 9 this past weekend. Bantamweight Ronnie Mann earned a unanimous decision win over Marat Pekov. Faycal Hucin defeated former UFC fighter Che Mills in his Middleweight debut via TKO at 4:23 of round 2. In the main event Welterweight Gael Grimaud made quick work of Bruno Carvalho defeating him by KO at just :45 of round 1.

At RFA 10 former UFC Featherweight Justin Lawrence returned to the win column after defeating Luis Saldana by unanimous decision. In the main event Mike Rhodes defeated Alan Jouban by unanimous decision to win the inaugural Welterweight title.

The UFC made its return to England for UFC Fight Night 30. Light Heavyweight Jimi Manuwa defeated Ryan Jimmo in bizarre fashion at 4:41 of round 2. It was declared a TKO but Jimmo appeared to have blown out something in his leg forcing him to stop fighting. The co-main event also ended unusually. Lightweight Melvin Guillard landed a knee to the head of Ross Pearson when he was a "grounded opponent" thus causing the fight to be declared a no contest. In the main event Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida made an impressive Middleweight debut knocking out Mark Munoz with a head kick at 3:10 of round 1.

WSOF 6 saw former UFC Welterweight Jon Fitch win a split decision over Marcelo Alfaya. Bantamweight Marlon Moraes continued his hot streak by defeating Carson Beebe via TKO at :32 of round 1.
