Cage Warriors 47 took place Saturday night in Dublin, Ireland, and if you were lucky enough to be watching at home you were treated to a magnificent night of MMA. In the main event, it was champion Mike Hayes vs. DJ Linderman in a heavyweight title bout. The title fight went 5 rounds, and it was new champion D.J. Linderman who pulled out the unanimous decision win.
In the co main event it was Conor McGreggor who put the pressure on Dave Hill from the first horn. Conor dropped hill in the first round, but was unable to finish Hill, and by the end of the round Hill had turned the tables on McGreggor and almost had a submission of his own. However, in the second round it was all McGreggor who dropped Hill again, and secured the rear naked choke to win the vacant Cage Warriors Featherweight Title.
