Cage Warriors Super Saturday – Preview

For the first time since 2014, Cage Warriors will hold its massive “Super Saturday” event and the fight card features some of the promotion’s most celebrated fighters.

Cage Warriors 92: Super Saturday, which takes place on Saturday, March 24th at the O2 Arena in London, will feature a double-main card, including three title fights. The Super Saturday events have consistently been the most anticipated shows for Cage Warriors, as they shine a spotlight on some of the best fighters in Europe. Shortly after the most recent Super Saturday event, Cage Warriors 69 in 2014, the UFC signed 9 fighters from the promotion, including former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and divisional standouts Stevie Ray, Jack Marshman, Arnold Allen, and Jack Hermansson.

Headlining the first main card, heavyweight champion Mauro Cerilli (11-2) will defend his crown against top contender Karl Moore (8-1) who is already the light-heavyweight champion and is looking to follow in fellow Irishman Conor McGregor’s footsteps and hold two Cage Warriors belts simultaneously.

This fight was previously supposed to happen twice in the past, once under the Venator banner, and again at Cage Warriors 89.

Currently riding a four-fight winning streak, Cerilli captured the title with a dominant knockout victory over veteran Nills van Noord at Cage Warriors 89. The Italian heavyweight holds notable victories over James Zikic and Lukasz Parobiec.

On the other hand, Karl Moore is on a three-fight winning streak; having finished two of his last three opponents, Moore also holds a submission victory over UFC heavyweight Cyril Asker, with his only loss coming to UFC light heavyweight contender Paul Craig.

Additionally, surging flyweight Sam Creasey (9-1) will square off against Cage Warriors debutant Nathan Greyson (5-2) for the vacant flyweight title.

In his last outing, Creasey delivered a sensational comeback victory over Paul Marin in a fight that showcased his durability and relentlessness. Despite being hurt and dropped with punches, Creasey rallied with a salvo of strikes late in the first round to vanquish his opponent from the title landscape.

Conversely, Greyson is on a two-fight winning streak, with stoppage victories over Jack Lambe and Sergei Morari. In his most recent bout, the explosive striker dispatched Lambe with a flurry of strikes in the second round.

In an exciting welterweight bout, Jamie Richardson (6-3) will lock horns with Sam Boult (9-2). Richardson is on a four-fight winning streak, all by way of TKO. Most recently, he stopped Norwegian standout Hakon Foss in the second round. Boult, on the other hand, is 2-2 in his last four. After an impressive seven-fight winning streak to start his career, Boult aims to reclaim his status as a welterweight prospect.

To kick off the first main card, Mehrdad Janzemini (8-2) will fight Brad Wheeler (16-11) in a welterweight fight. Janzemini, a submission specialist, will look to extend his winning streak to 5 as he takes on the well-rounded Wheeler, who is coming off a June loss to Matt Inman.

The marquee matchup of the second main card will see highly-touted bantamweight prospect Nathaniel Wood (12-3) defend his title against Italian standout Luca Iovine (12-1).

In his most recent fight at Cage Warriors 86, Wood fought Josh Reed in what many pundits have hailed the best fight of 2017. After having been on the brink of defeat from a flurry of strikes, Wood weathered the attack and mustered an offensive of his own, quickly turning the tables and finishing his opponent late in the first round. It was an instant classic, and many fans are excited to see Wood return to the cage.

His opponent, Luca Iovine is currently on an eight-fight winning streak. Having stopped his past five opponents, Iovine is looking to make his Cage Warriors debut an emphatic one.

In what should be a fast-paced welterweight bout, Welsh standout Craig White (13-7) will fight Alex Montagnani (10-2).

White is on a three-fight winning streak in Cage Warriors, all by first-round stoppage. Likewise, Montagnani is also on a three-fight winning streak, with two victories coming via TKO. Most notably, Montagnani stopped Martin Hudson in the first round at BAMMA 31 back in September.

Also of note, there is a lot of hype surrounding bantamweight Jack Shore, who will fight UFC veteran Vaughan Lee as part of the second main card. Current UFC standout Brett Johns recently told MMAFighting.com that Shore will likely reach the UFC in the near future. Currently 7-0, Shore will be taking on his biggest name to date, whereas Lee will look to assert the fact that he is still an elite bantamweight.

To start the second main card, featherweight prospect Corrin Eaton (9-2) will take on Cage Warriors veteran Dan Trueman (7-4). Eaton is a well-rounded fighter with an equal amount of TKO and submission victories. Making his debut after finishing his last three opponents, he will look to put away the durable Dan Trueman. Meanwhile, Trueman aims to get back in the win column after an April 2017 loss to TUF 22 veteran Frantz Slioa.

The preliminary card will be streamed live on the Cage Warriors Facebook page at 4:30pm.

The first main card will be available on the SportBible Facebook page (UK & Ireland) and UFC Fight Pass at 6:00pm.

Finally, the second main card will be live on BT Sport 1 and UFC FightPass at 9:00pm.
