Cage Warriors’ new middleweight champion Christian Leroy Duncan will top the bill at Cage Warriors 146 in November.

Duncan, who captured the 185-pound title with a stunning flying-knee finish of Djati Melan at Cage Warriors 136 in Manchester in April, is all set to return to the scene of his title victory as he puts the belt on the line for the first time.

Duncan has been booked in the main event of Cage Warriors 146, on Saturday, November 12 at the BEC Arena, where he’ll take on Marian Dimitrov.

Still undefeated as a pro, Duncan will look to extend that streak as he competes in his seventh professional bout against 10-2 contender Dimitrov, who arrives in Cage Warriors riding a 10-fight win streak.

The Duncan vs. Dimitrov main event is the first matchup announced for the fight card as Cage Warriors continues its non-stop schedule through the second half of 2022.
