6 title fights make ‘Night of Champions’ the biggest event in CW history
Cage Warriors prepare to stage their biggest event of all time on June 29th at the Eventim Apollo in London, having already confirmed five world title fights with one more still to be announced.
Not only is this the biggest fight card the promotion have ever put together, but the first time that the iconic London venue has opened its doors to the sport of MMA.
The last time Cage Warriors put on a ‘Night of Champions’ card, the crowd was treated to an incredible showing from Michael Bisping, Dan Hardy, Antonio Silva and others who later went on to become worldwide UFC stars. Here’s the world title fights announced so far for June 29th.
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.
In the lightweight division, the vacant title is on the line when dangerous finishers Jai Herbert and Jack Grant meet in an all-UK clash. 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.
The lightweight title on the line has been previously held by two-weight champion Conor McGregor.
The featherweight title is also on the line when reigning champion Dean Trueman steps up for the toughest test of his career to date, taking on Danish UFC veteran Mads Burnell.
The Eventim Apollo is sure to be on it’s feet when London’s own middleweight champion James Webb defends his title in his backyard against formidable challenger Nathias Frederick, who is riding a seven-fight win streak.
The latest addition to the huge ‘Night of Champions’ card is a European showdown for the light heavyweight title formerly held by MMA legend Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping. Norwegian national hero Marthin Hamlet – a 7 time national wrestling champion with 15 World Cup medals to his name – will take on young London-based prospect Modestas Bukauskas, whose incredible comeback win over Marcin Wójcik was one of the highlights of the night during Cage Warriors’ last visit to London earlier in the year.
