WINNER VS. BUTLIN RE-SCHEDULED ON “RIVAL” PROMOTION AS TITLE BOUT


By Jim Burman

The highly anticipated match-up between Andre Winner (5-0) and Ian Butlin (6-5) - previously arranged for April 28’s CageWarriors “Enter The Rough House 2” event in Nottingham has been cancelled due to Butlin suffering an arm injury.

However, in a show of solidarity, the fight has been rescheduled for July 8’s FX3 Fight Night 5 in Reading and will be for the vacant FX3 Lightweight Championship title. Injured former champion Ollie Ellis has relinquished his title due to an inability to defend it in a timely fashion.
