Cage Warriors’ final event of 2022 features a trio of championship bouts, plus a Team Europe vs. Team USA showdown as the promotion features its best talent from both sides of the Atlantic on New Year’s Eve in London.
The event, which takes place at the Indigo at The O2, is headlined by a middleweight championship bout, as defending champion Christian Leroy Duncan takes on returning former middleweight champion Jesse Taylor in a matchup that represents the sternest test of Duncan’s professional career to date.
The vacant light heavyweight title will find a new home in the co-main event, as former champion Modestas Bukauskas and Chuck Campbell face off for the 205-pound strap in what should be a fascinating striking-based contest.
There’s also championship action further down the card, with the flyweight title bout between reigning champion Sam Creasey and top contender Shajidul Haque headlining the preliminary card.
Other notable names on the card include former UFC flyweight title challenger Wilson Reis, ex-UFC middleweight and light heavyweight Darren Stewart, and Swedish featherweight contender Tobias Harila.
The event streams live on UFC Fight Pass and via Cage Warriors’ international broadcast partners, with the preliminary card kicking off at 6:30pm GMT (1:30pm ET/10:30am PT), and the main card starting at 9:00pm GMT (4:00pm ET/1:00pm PT).
