Cage Warriors press officer Paul Dollery revealed via his twitter earlier today that the planned Cage Warriors 62 main event between Neil Seery and Ulysses Gomez has now been cancelled.

The challenger Gomez “collapsed while cutting weight” earlier today and Cage Warriors have been given no choice but to pull the fight from the card.

“To put a guy in to compete just 24 hours after collapsing due to severe dehydration would be negligent to say the least” said Dollery on his twitter.

The champion Neil “2 Tap” Seery made weight at 124.7lbs.

Here are all the quotes from Paul Dollery’s Twitter..

“Ulysses Gomez v Neil Seery is off. Gomez collapsed while cutting weight; was taken to hospital. He’s OK now but we’ve decided to pull fight.”

“Gutted, obviously, that Seery/Gomez is off but the correct decision was taken. Gomez is fine now but wasn’t in a good way earlier”

“To put a guy in to compete just 24 hours after collapsing due to severe dehydration would be negligent to say the least”

“Gomez still wants to fight, I should add, but he understands and accepts the decision that’s been taken”

“Just to reiterate, Ulysses Gomez is fine now and is being taken well care of at hospital in Newcastle”

“For the record, by the way, Neil Seery made weight at 124.7lbs”

Neil Seery: I’ll be looking for the knockout on Saturday night

This week, PETER CARROLL caught up with Cage Warriors flyweight world champion, Neil “2 Tap” Seery, who makes his first title defense this Saturday night at Cage Warriors 62 in Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena where he faces off against experienced UFC veteran, Ulysses Gomez.

On Saturday June 1 Neil “2 Tap” Seery had what many people believed to be a career defining moment, winning the inaugural Cage Warriors flyweight championship matchup in front of his home crowd in Dublin’s Helix venue.

Clinging to a tricolour as he was held aloft by one of the nation’s MMA pioneers, his coach Andy Ryan, it seemed the journey that had spanned over a decade had come to a head with the ecstatic gathering on their feet showing their approval for the new champion.

Despite the occasion and the perceived mainstream obscurity up to that point, the 34 year old Team Ryano man doesn’t seem to connect as dramatically with a moment considered a classic by the vast majority of Irish MMA fans.

“The big thing for me from that night was getting a win in Dublin,” he said. “To be honest, I didn’t care that much about the title or anything that came with it, all I ever care about is getting the win.
