Cage Warriors’ new featherweight champion Morgan Charriere will be defending his title against Jordan Vucenic at Cage Warriors 122.
The bout will be the main event of the 122 card that will be the last of the three events occurring between the March 18-20, the 3rd of the trilogy events the promotion have been putting on through the pandemic.
The Frenchman won the vacant title Perry Goodwin, with a body-shot in the 3rd round of their main event clash at Cage Warriors 119 in December.
Vucenic fought earlier on the card – in a fight of the year winner – defeating the previously unbeaten Paul Hughes in a tight split decision to earn his shot on March 20.
“Welcome to my era.” Charrier said. “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 – on a five-fight win streak – said: “(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.”
