Noam Dar def. Gurv Sihra (First Round Match)
Though Scotland’s Noam Dar is the youngest competitor in the CWC, it does not mean he’s inexperienced. The 22-year-old has become one of the most accomplished technicians on the British independent scene since entering the ring at 15, and he showed why in the early moments of his match with Gurv Sihra. “The Golden Lion” took a different approach to the match, catching his opponent with an elbow, then taunting the fiery Dar into charging at him, giving him an opening to take Dar down to the mat.
Despite being at the mercy of Sihra, Dar did not give in, waiting for his opening to attack. The Scottish submission expert focused his attack on the leg of “The Golden Lion.” Sihra nearly turned the tide with an elbow off the ropes, but Dar evaded. It wasn’t long after that Dar locked on his trademark kneebar in the middle of the ring to get the submission. The victory sees Dar move onto the Second Round and a matchup with Hong Kong’s Ho Ho Lun.
