SBG standout Blaine O’Driscoll’s attempt to take home Cage Warriors flyweight gold has been cancelled after the champion Nathan Greyson failed to make weight.
You have to feel for Blaine with this one.
After earning a shot at the Cage Warriors flyweight title, the reigning champion Nathan Greyson confirmed that he is unable to make weight for the bout – which was scheduled to take place at CW99 on November 17 in Colchester, England.

Blaine was the first fighter to feature in our ongoing series Exploring Irish MMA and while this setback will no doubt be a bitter pill to swallow, we’re sure that his shot at the belt will come once again before long.
