Cage Warriors 81 Results: Moore Cruises Past Clark, Costigan Edges McKenna

On Saturday, March 4, Cage Warriors headed to the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland for its 81st event.

In the evening’s main event, the promotion’s vacant light heavyweight title was up for grabs between Karl Moore and Josh Clark. The Irishman Moore entered the match-up having won seven of his eight professional outings, with the lone loss coming against current UFC combatant Paul Craig under the BAMMA banner. Four of his seven wins have come inside the first round, and he’s gone the distance just once in his career. Clark, meanwhile, traveled overseas looking to recapture the momentum that earned him a spot on The Ultimate Fighter 19. The American, dubbed “The Hillbilly Heartthrob,” had won five of his last six, with the defeat coming inside the RFA cage.

The event aired live at 4 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass.
