The full fight card has been confirmed for Cage Warriors 154 this weekend, with the promotion set to crown a new 135-pound champion in Rome, Italy.

The vacant bantamweight title is up for grabs in the main event at Fiera Roma, as Italy’s own Dylan Hazan takes on Irish contender Caolan Loughran for the unclaimed 135-pound strap.

The night’s co-main event features a familiar face to UK UFC fans, as former UFC veteran Darren “The Dentist” Stewart features against Leon Aliu, while another UFC vet, Carlo Pedersoli Jr., is also set for action as he takes on Giannis Bachar in a welterweight matchup.

The preliminary card will also feature four Italian and two Indonesian prospects to emerge from the MMA Fight Academy, a new venture established by Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan and Indonesian broadcasters Mola TV.

Italians Luca Borando, Edoardo Caizza, Francesco Mazzeo, and Khadim Dia are all set for action on the preliminary card, along with Indonesian hopefuls Cornellius Aritonang and Yoga Probowo.

Cage Warriors 154 takes place Saturday, May 6, and streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
