Welterweights John Michael Sheil (8-1) and Jack Mason (21-11) have been added to the New Year's Eve show for Cage Warriors. The two will meet on the main card at Cage Warriors 51.
After Sheil suffered his first career loss, he dropped down to a welterweight. All of his previous middleweight wins came within round one. Mason is 2-4 for Cage Warriors. He enters the fight coming off a quick submission win from their October show.
The card is headlined with featherweight champion Conor McGregor (11-2) looking to be the first fighter in the promotion to hold two different weight class titles, when he takes on Ivan Buchinger (21-3) for the vacant gold.
Cage Warriors 51 occurs December 31 from The Helix in Ireland. The main card streams live at MMA Junkie and the preliminary fights will follow on Facebook.
