4 title fights announced for CW106: Night of Champions
Cage Warriors prepare to stage their biggest event of all time on June 29th, already confirming title fights in the middleweight, welterweight, lightweight and featherweight divisions.
The last time Cage Warriors put on a ‘Night of Champions’ card, the crowd was treated to an incredible showing from soon-to-become UFC stars Michael Bisping, Dan Hardy, Antonio Silva and more. Now, almost 15 years later, it’s time for the second ‘Night of Champions’ in Cage Warriors history, when every main card fight will be for a world title at the iconic Eventim Apollo in London.
Here’s the bouts announced so far.
Undefeated Welterweight champion Ross Houston will fight to unify his title against interim champion and UFC vet Nicolas Dalby, who recently knocked out Alex Lohoré at CW103 in one of his most impressive performances to date. Houston is now 8-0 in the division and won the title in an incredible war with Stefano Paterno at CW98, which fans voted 2018’s ‘Fight of the Year’.
The vacant title is on the line when dangerous finishers Jai Herbert and Jack Grant meet in an all-UK clash in the lightweight division. Both men have surged through the ranks over the last few years with numerous highlight real knockouts, boasting a collective 21 finishes within the distance since their debuts.
In the featherweight division, a long-anticipated clash to unify the title will finally take place when champion Dean Trueman takes on interim champion Søren ‘True Viking’ Bak. Trueman’s road to the belt began with a hard fought win over Corrin Eaton at CW92, then going on to beat Lewis Monarch and Aiden Lee in the featherweight title tournament. Bak boasts wins over Alexander Jacobsen and Paddy Pimblett in the last 12 months, and recently secured his shot at Trueman with a victory over Morgan Charriere at CW103.
London’s own middleweight champion James Webb will defend his title in his backyard against formidable challenger Nathias Frederick, who is riding a seven-fight win streak into CW106. Webb has finished his last four fights within the distance, winning the title with an impressive submission over Thomas Robertsen at CW102.
“No question, this will be one of the craziest cards we’ve ever put together,” says Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan. Stay tuned for the last of the 5 title fights to be announced.
