6 title fights make ‘Night of Champions’ the biggest event in Cage Warriors history

Cage Warriors prepare to stage their biggest event of all time on June 29th at the Eventim Apollo in London, having confirmed six world title fights in one night.

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 next 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.

The final world title fight to be announced is number one contender Sam Creasey vs top French flyweight Samir Faiddine. Creasey has battled his way to a title shot before, but fell short in one of the most exciting fights of the night at CW92. Since then, he’s bounced back with 2 impressive wins over Coner Hignett and Andy Young, taking his record to 11-2.

Across the cage from him on June 29th will be Samir ‘Silverback’ Faiddine, also with 11 wins to his name. Having recently claimed the title in another organisation, Faiddine is looking to add the coveted Cage Warriors belt to his collection and begin a championship reign with Europe’s leading MMA promotion.
