Cage Warriors has crowned a new welterweight champion. Saturday’s main event of Cage Warriors 140 at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland would see Rhys McKee challenge Justin Burlinson for the vacant welterweight title. The event was packed with exciting finishes from beginning to end, and it would be the UFC veteran McKee (12-4-1) who would close the show with one final knockout. Just a few seconds into the third round, moments after Burlinson (7-2) would attempt a spinning back elbow, McKee landed a crushing left hand that would leave his opponent slumped against the fence. Check out video of the title-winning finish by McKee in the video below (via Twitter ): What just happened!?!? Chaos in Belfast!
