Cage Warriors 82 took place April 1st and could be seen on UFC Fight Pass from The Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. In the Main Event, Nad Narmiani stunned the crowd beating hometown favorite Paddy Pimblett to become the new Featherweight Champion. Narmiani and Pimblett both looked good on the feet, but each round Narmiani was able to get it the ground and was the far superior fighter there. In women’s action Molly McCann won a decision against Lacey Schuckman winning the first two rounds with harder and more effective striking. Schuckman tried to mount a comeback in round three but was unsuccessful. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
