| by

Cage Warriors 51 had some minor tweaks made after last minute injuries occurred.

John Michael Sheil (8-1) pulled out of his fight with Jack Mason (21-11) after suffering a knee injury. Florent Betorangal (10-5) was selected as a replacement name.

Liam James (6-4) went down with an undisclosed injury and his fight with Alan Philpott (7-3) was removed when no replacement could be found. Paul Redmond (5-3) vs. Ryan Roddy (5-0) has been promoted from the preliminary card to the main one due to the cancellation of the fight.

The show takes place December 31 at The Helix in Ireland. Featherweight champion Conor McGregor (11-2) and Ivan Buchinger (21-3) will compete for the vacant lightweight championship in the main event.
