Cage Warriors 113 is rolling on as scheduled.

Graham Boylan, president of the U.K.-based promotion, issued a statement Sunday stating that the March 20 show that is set to take place at the Indigo at the O2 in London will proceed amid unless compulsory government restrictions are announced in regards to the coronavirus.

Though all fighters and staff are expected to attend, Boylan mentioned that the card could take place behind closed doors as was the case with the UFC’s Fight Night event in Brasilia on Saturday.

“As of today, Cage Warriors 113 has no restrictions,” Boylan wrote in a tweet. “Should the government step in with restrictions that ‘are compulsory’ then it will be a closed door event. No government restrictions will mean a Cage Warriors event as normal. The fighters and staff have all been asked and all are attending.”

“We could well be behind closed doors, time will tell and most likely we will,” he later added.

Cage Warriors 113 features a trio of title bouts, with a fight for an interim featherweight title between Morgan Charriere and Darko Banovic headlining the show. The event airs live on UFC Fight Pass.
