Kyle Driscoll Upends Joshua Jones in Cage Warriors 133 Main Event

The Cage Warriors returned to the United States for their sixth event, CW 133, which landed at the Del Mar Arena in San Diego.

In the headliner, Dana White’s Contender Series Alum Kyle Driscoll confronted Bellator MMA vet Joshua Jones in a rather repetitive and indifferent conflict. Driscoll (13-3, 1-0 CW) kept his opponent on the canvas for most of the first turn thanks to a much more elegant wrestling background. In turn, Jones (11-6, 0-1 CW) responded with a deep kimura effort. In Round 2, it was Jones’s turn to shoot for takedowns, something Driscoll denied every time. Jones searched again for the kimono, but his enemy picked it up and finished the round in full swing. Driscoll, who stands out from the American Kickboxing Academy, retaliated with another takedown early in Round 3. Jones retaliated with Driscoll’s third unsuccessful kimono attempt. Driscoll spent the rest of the year fighting with his opponent as the crowd expressed their frustration with some disapproval. In the end, Driscoll got a unanimous victory with 30-27, 30-27 and 29-27 from the judges, marking his eighth consecutive triumph.

In the co-feature, former Ultimate Fighting Championship contender Wilson Reis returned as he closed the horns with Jeremiah Labiano almost 10 years after his last commercial. Reis (25-12, 2-0 CW) relied heavily on his wrestling and grappling skills to prevent Labiano from playing his impressive game. The contestants spent a lot of time fighting with the fence, where Reys set his rejections. On the canvas, the Brazilian controlled his opponent from above, but did not allow him to cause much damage by a very active Lambiano (13-9, 0-1 CW), who also had to fight with an involuntary low shot by Reyes. In the third, Labiano allowed his opponent to lower him and landed a few punches before using the cage for a nice scan. In the next scrabble, Reyes regained dominance and ended the collision by defending one knee. When the dust fell, the ring announcer revealed that Wilson was rewarded with two 29-28 cards, while a third judge next to the cage sided with Labiano. It was enough for the Brazilian to get a victory with a fatal decision.

Elsewhere, Damon Wilson (4-0, 3-0 CW) held the record perfectly after crushing Ryan Fillingame (6-5, 0-1 CW) with punches with just 23 seconds left in the starting line-up. them at featherweight. UFC vet Joseph Morales (11-2, 2-0 CW) did well enough to overtake former 125-pound Cage Fury Fighting Championships champion Sidemar Honorio (13-8, 0-1 CW) thanks to a close decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-29); Jose Mariscal (11-6, 1NC, 1-0 CW) stopped Luke Faultersack (6-5, 0-1 CW) with a series of punches that stopped the fight at 4:08 in the 2nd round. in the middleweight division, Justin Barry (3-0, 2-0 CW) beat Bellator MMA Alum Kealii Kanekoa (2-4, 0-1 CW) on the way to a unanimous decision as the scorecards read 30-26, 30-26 and 30-26; Roberto Hernandez (3-1, 1-0 CW) forced Ethyn Ewing (0-2, 0-1 CW) to step on a bad heel hook at 1:44 in the first half of the match with their feathers. Eimar Hernandez (2-0, 1-0 CW) ruled over Enrique Marte (1-2, 0-2 CW) as the judges placed 29-28, 29-28, 28-28 at the end of the match. the flyweight collision; at welterweight, Blake Cooper (1-0, 1-0 CW) drowned Soslan Margiev (0-1, 0-1 CW) 110 seconds outside the gate.
