Cage Warriors is back in action tonight with the night one of “The Trilogy”
Cage Warriors 120 are set to go for 3 nights of back 2 back action from the world-renowned York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.
The card is headlined by Jamie Richardson (9-6) & Kent Kauppinen (12-6). Kauppinen will be making his debut but do not allow that to sway your mind. Kauppinen has been fighting under the Bellator banner for some time and has serious power in his hands. ‘Young Gun’ Jamie Richardson has already had a chance at the title only to lose in the 3rd round. I believe the winner of the fight will be next in line to face Nathias Frederick for that Middleweight title.
In the co-main event Irelands, Paul Hughes(6-1) will face off with James Hendin (5-0) in what many are calling a pivotal fight in the featherweight division. Hughes is coming off a defeat (in a very close fight) to Jordan Vucenic who will now face champion Morgan Charriere on Saturday night. Can Hughes bounce back from his first career defeat? If he does he must beat James Hendin (5-0) who has four wins in a row under the banner, and now the undefeated prospect will look to push himself to the front of the featherweight queue.
