MMA Analysis: Cage Warriors Fight Night 5 Complete Results

Fans were treated to some afternoon MMA today as Cage Warriors presented Fight Night 5 from the New Boxing Arena in Amman, Jordan. The night was headlined by a heavyweight matchup between Bobby Brents and later replacement DJ Linderman but all eyes were on the semifinal round in the middleweight division.

Pavel Kusch and Victor Cheng each got the win using completely different methods and will now face each other for the Cage Warriors middleweight championship. Cheng defeated Faycal Hucin with a 15 minute smothering in route to a unanimous decision, while Kusch need less than 30 seconds to grab a limb of his opponent John Phillips for a heel hook submission. The two will now face each other at a later date, with the winner being crowned the champion.

Other highlights on the card were James Brum dominating his opponent, Thomas Back for a lopsided unanimous decision and Mike Ling looking impressive with a 2nd round TKO win over Eric Cebarec.
