Morgan Charrieré Takes on Darko Banović for Interim Title in Cage Warriors London Main Event

Featherweight number one contender Morgan Charrieré (15-7) will battle Darko Banović (17-7) for the Interim belt on March 20th, topping one of Cage Warriors’ biggest London cards of all time.

Two of Europe’s most elite featherweights will meet at the top of the sold-out Cage Warriors London bill.

With current champion Mads Burnell currently out of action, an Interim Title fight has been scheduled which will determine the next man to face him.

Surging prospect Morgan Charrieré, arguably the fastest rising name in French MMA, knocked out former champion Dean Trueman at CW109 in the biggest statement of his career to date. He makes up one side of the main event clash on March 20th.

“This is just the beginning of my era,” said Charrieré.

“I’ll be in the best shape of my life to get that belt, and you can expect fireworks.”

Facing him is Darko Banović, whose 17 wins include back-to-back first round finishes in his last 2 outings. Fighting out of Vienna, Austria, Banović is ready for the sternest test of his career and plans to put on a show in order to take home the coveted title formerly held by Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor.

“I’m going to smash the Frenchman in London to amaze the English crowd,” he said.

“Enjoy the show.”

The sold-out Cage Warriors London is expected to be one of the promotion’s strongest cards of the year, and forms a huge weekend of MMA with UFC London taking place the following day.

The card includes many of Cage Warriors biggest names, including Flyweight Champion Samir Faiddine, former champion Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett and rising stars Mason Jones and Ian Garry.

With the event sold out, fans can watch the action live from the Indigo at the O2 Arena on UFC Fight Pass.
