McCann vs. Tyrell for inaugural women’s flyweight title headlines CWFC 90

Cage Warriors Fighting Championship have gone through 89 events but to date have not held a women’s flyweight title fight, a fact that is to be rectified at CWFC 90 when Molly McCann and Bryony Tyrell square off.  CWFC 90 takes place February 24th at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England with a main card webcast at UFC Fight Pass.

6-1 Molly McCann has been fighting at flyweight since her second pro MMA bout in November 2015, a fight that was also her only loss as she took a unanimous decision bump from Vanessa Melo.  McCann made her CWFC debut last April where she defeated Lacey Schuckman while her follow-up was a win over Priscila de Souza with both fights ending by unanimous decision for McCann.  4-1-1 Bryony Tyrell is making her debuts both for CWFC and at flyweight.  At strawweight Tyrell went 1-1-1 in 2017 with a loss to Kate Jackson, win over Griet Eeckhout, and draw against Lanchana Green.

CWFC’s biggest star Paddy Pimblett returns in the co-main event where he faces Alexis Savvidis.  Pimblett won the then-vacant featherweight title at CWFC 78 with a win over Johnny Frachey then defended the belt against Julian Erosa before losing it to Nad Narimani last April.  Pimblett started his career at bantamweight but now makes his lightweight debut as his record stands at 13-2.  16-6-1 Savvidis also makes is lightweight debut as well as his debut in CWFC.  Savvidis started off 2017 taking a draw against Filip Pejic at a catchweight of 150 then won fights at featherweight against Gabriel Sabo and Nilson Pereira.  Savvidis did make this weight for a grappling match against Ioannis Alexandrakis in September in what was his most recent sporting event.
