All fighters have successfully weighed in ahead of Cage Warriors 113 which means, after many changes and adjustments, the event is likely to go ahead.
During the weigh-ins extra precautions were taken due to the coronavirus pandemic meaning that the weigh-ins were separated into three different weigh-ins events throughout the day to reduce the number of people in the same place at the same time.
Further to this, only one team member of each fighter was allowed to accompany the fighter at the weigh-in to further reduce the number of people occupying the same space.
Cage Warriors also checked all fighters were checked for symptoms of COVID-19 at the weigh-ins and all staff members will be checked for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the BEC arena in Manchester tomorrow night.
It is important to note that carriers of COVID-19 can be asymptomatic and still be spreading the virus so checked for symptoms of the virus doesn’t mean the people at the event won’t be spreading the virus. Cage Warriors have come under some criticism for continuing ahead with the event despite advice from the government to stay indoors and not have gatherings of large people.
