Saturday’s Cage Warriors world title match between Nicolas Dalby and Ross Houston was stopped before the end of the second round as the referee determined that the blood lost by both men was a potential health risk.

Referee Marc Goddard called the fight and declare it a no-contest, citing the danger of the slippery mat as the reason for his decision.

Both Dalby and Houston appeared comfortable with the decision, embracing in the cage and calling for a rematch to take place on the upcoming UFC Copenhagen card in Dalby’s home country of Denmark on September 28th.

Fighting causes blood. Sometimes too much. 

It happens.
