Tom Watson will have to wait a little longer before he makes his return to the cage.
“Kong” was scheduled to take on Aaron Khalid in a welterweight bout at Saturday night’s Cage Warriors 104 in Cardiff, Wales, but was removed from the card earlier Saturday. According to the promotion, Watson was not medically cleared to fight.
Due to not being medically cleared, Tom Watson is no longer eligible to fight and his bout with Aaron Khalid has been removed from tonight’s main card.
