Cage Warriors announced yesterday the return of the ”Unplugged” event which will take place at BT Studios, London on September 6th.
The event will be broadcast live on BT Sport as opposed to UFC Fight Pass and will feature a one night, four man Bantamweight tournament to crown a new 135lb champion, following Jack Shore’s arrival into the UFC.
The event will be similar to the original ”Unplugged” which saw fan favourite Paddy Pimblett and now UFC fighter Chris Fishgold retain their world titles, in front of an invite only audience.
”Unplugged 2” will act as a warm up event on BT Sport 1, with UFC 242 taking place the following day on BT Sports Box Office. When asked for comment, Casimir Knight, Cage Warriors CEO, had this to say “We are excited to be part of this. We like to do innovative things, like Unplugged. I want to thank BT Sport and UFC FightPass for making this happen.”
Unplugged 2 will not sell any tickets to the general public and will be invite only.
