Cage Warriors 122 will bring an end to a crazy three days of action-packed events, but have they saved the best till last?
The main event will see French Fighter Morgan “The Last Pirate” Charrier (16-7-1) looking to defend his featherweight title against a hungry Jordan Vucenic (7-1).
Charrier has finished his last two fights in dominating fashion, by finishing both Dean Trueman & Perry Goodwin. One of the biggest prospects to come from the European circuit in the last few years.
“Welcome to my era,” said Charriere.
“As a champion, I will always defend against the number one contender. I am ready to show again why I am one of the best featherweights in the world. This belt ain’t going anywhere.”
Vucenic’s last fight proved he was ready for the title shot, having taken out another young prospect in Paul Hughes in a back and forth war at CW119. “The Epidemic” has a solid wrestling game to lean on, while Charriere utilises his cardio and well-rounded skills to take fights into the late stages.
“[The Cage Warriors Title] was one of my main dreams when starting the sport, and it’s been an amazing show to work with and grow as a fighter. No easy fights.” – Jordan Vucenic.
In the co-main we have the return of Paddy ‘The Baddy” Pimblett (15-3). A year to the day they were originally meant Pimblett will face off with Davide Martinez (8-2).
Pimblett, a former Cage Warriors featherweight champion, is well known for his finishing ability, having won 11 fights within the distance, with his submission game being noted as a particularly strong weapon in his arsenal.
Martinez meanwhile has fantastic cardio that has carried him to five decision wins, and knockout power in his hands, which has helped him secure three KO wins.
The main card gets started at 8 pm GMT on UFC Fight Pass. While the prelims get started at 6:30 pm GMT exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
