James Webb and Thomas Robertsen will meet for the vacant Cage Warriors Middleweight title at Cage Warriors 102 on Saturday 2nd March at the Indigo in London. The card will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
James Webb (5-1) has been on a tremendous run since making his Cage Warriors debut last year. Webb submitted Marcin Prostko with a rear naked choke late in the first round at Cage Warriors 92. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt followed up with another submission win against Pelu Adetola at Cage Warriors 95. Webb headlined Cage Warriors 99 in his hometown of Colchester, where he demonstrated his standup skills against the tough Jason Radcliffe. James knocked out Radcliffe in the first round and moved into title contention.
Thomas “The Saint” Robertsen (7-1) rebound from his unsuccessful debut against Craig White to go on a 2-fight winning streak in Cage Warriors. The Norwegian earned his title shot after he defeated Phill Wells and Saeed Younsi. Robertsen trains out of the Sarpsborg Chi Kickboxing & MMA gym in Norway.
The Cage Warriors middleweight title was vacated after Jonas Billstein was stripped of the title.
