Cage Warriors continues a packed summer of fight nights with Cage Warriors 85 at The O2 Academy in Bournemouth, England – and there’s a world title on the line in the main event.
The vacant Cage Warriors middleweight title, is up for grabs in the headline contest, as England’s Jason Radcliffe takes on Poland’s Oskar Piechota.
The middleweight title has helped former champions Jack Hermansson and Jack Marshman springboard their careers onto the world stage in the UFC, with Cage Warriors’ championship belts representing the cream of the crop on the European stage.
The co-main event promises to be a special occasion for former Royal Marine Martin Stapleton, who competes on National Armed Forces Day against Belgian lightweight Donovan Desmae.
The main card also features a middleweight battle as surging contender Lee ‘The Butcher’ Chadwick takes on Andy Manzolo, plus the eagerly-awaited pro debut of Northern Irish featherweight and IMMAF amateur world champion Leah McCourt.
There are a very limited number of tickets still available via cagewarriors.com
