So tonight, Cage Warriors returns to London for another blockbuster night of fighting. Here is the full card breakdown.
(Bantamweight) Bryan Creighton vs Darren O’Gorman: We start off the night with a bantamweight bout between 2 submission specialists. Creighton is making his Cage Warriors return and is currently on a 3 fight win streak. O’Gorman has fought once in the promotion making his way over from BAMMA, he lost his debut in March and will look to getting back to winning ways. Both are good on the ground and both need a win.
(Welterweight) Phil Wells vs Thomas Robertson: Next, we have a welterweight bout with 2 finishers. Phil Wells is known primarily for his knockouts especially in the first round and has a record of 8 – 4 – 0. Thomas Robertson is also known for a quick finish; not one of his fights has gone past the second round. Robertson is more of an all rounder, but I can’t see this one going into the third round.
(Lightweight) Sean Carter vs Sean O’Keefe: An interesting bout, O’Keefe is making his return to the sport, not having a fight in just over 4 years. His opponent Carter is making CWFC return having not fought there since November 2014. Both men are deadly on the ground. O’Keefe will have more ring rust, plus he has a lot to prove, this is a man who before he left the sport, he had incurred 2 losses, one of which was to current UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor, however he does hold a submission victory over Artem Lobov. Carter will want to keep his win streak going as he is on a 2 fight win streak.
(Flyweight) Sam Creasey vs Iurie Bejenari: Another interesting bout, Iurie Bejenari is making his debut in Cage Warriors. Creasey was on a roll up until November of last year when he lost to Shaj Haque. He will want to get back to winning ways while Bejenari is currently on a 4 fight win streak. These guys will both be looking for an early finish.
(Middleweight) Miro Jurkovic vs James Webb: 2 relative newcomers to the sport. Jurkovic is 3 – 0 – 0 and has won via submission, decision and KO respectively while Webb is 1 – 0 – 0 with a submission victory and a KO victory as an amateur. A fairly even match-up, can go either way.
(Welterweight) Craig White vs Hakon Foss: We start off the main card with 2 finishers. Both men have a lot of experience under their belt with White having 3 more years than Foss. Both are similar in stature. Craig White is dangerous standing up and on the ground. Hakon Foss is also an all rounder and is currently on a 4 fight win streak. This has the potential to get an accolade of the night.
(Lightweight) Tom Green vs Alexander Jacobsen: Next, it’s the battle of the streaks. Green is making his CWFC debut and is currently on a 10 fight win streak and is known for finishing his opponents primarily in the first round. Jacobsen is on a 7 fight win streak with his latest victory back in February at CWFC 80. He too is known for finishing his opponent. This will most likely end in the first round, I’ll be amazed if it goes to the judges.
(Welterweight) Brad Wheeler vs Matt Inman: Another bout with 2 prolific fighters. Brad Wheeler is more proficient on the ground but has knocked out 2 of his last 4 opponents. Matt Inman is just as dangerous on the ground as he is standing up. He will want a win as he lost his last bout at CWFC 80 to Karl Amoussou. Another fight tat will probably not go to the judges.
(Light Heavyweight) Norman Paraisy vs Kenneth Bergh: An interesting bout; Paraisy is making his return to the sport. His first fight in 3 years but has a ton of experience been on the ultimate fighter and has fought all over the place including for Bellator. He has a tough challenge ahead of him; Bergh is on a role at the moment and is 5 – 0 – 0 with 4 wins coming from submission and 1 from KO all ending in the first round. Who knows which way this one will go.
(Main Event) (Bantamweight Championship) Nathaniel Wood vs Marko Kovacevic: The vacant belt is up for grabs in the main event. Nathaniel Wood will have the home advantage against the Norwegian. Wood is a knockout artist and is a 2 fight win streak with victories over Bellator’s Chase Morton and UFC alumni Vaughan Lee. Marko is more proficient for going to the ground, however his last 2 wins in an impressive 8 fight win streak have been by KO in the first round. He is also making his CWFC debut, so he’ll want to make an impression. Could be fight of the night.
