Cork fighters prepare for professional debuts at Cage Warriors
Cage Warriors returns to Cork this weekend after an eight year absence.
A sold out Neptune Stadium will be on hand for a top class card, headlined by Rhys McKee versus Hakan Foss.
A number of Cork fighters are on the card, including two fighters from the MMA Cork club.
Jack Maguire and John Mitchell will make their professional debuts on Leeside on Saturday night, and we've spoke to both of them.
First up is Jack Maguire, who will finally make his pro debut after a number of fights over the past year were pulled - he faces Manny Akpan.
