Jordan Vucenic vs Morgan Charrière 2 set to headline Cage Warriors 124
Jordan Vucenic (8-1, 4-0 CW) has won all four of his fights in Cage Warriors via decision, with three of those coming by split-decision, giving a testament to the level of competition ‘The Epidemic’ has faced since entering the organization on his way to the title. Vucenic actually won his shot at the title with a split-decision victory over fellow title contender Paul Hughes at Cage Warriors 119.
Morgan Charrière (16-8, 3-2 CW) had won the vacant featherweight title with a victory over Perry Andre Goodwin at Cage Warriors 119 via a 3rd round TKO. Before his first title defence ended in defeat as Charrière was left devastated as Vucenic won the title off of the French star last time out in a razor-close split-decision victory at Cage Warriors 122 in London.
One of the judges scored the fight in Charrière’s favour, scoring it 49-46 for the Frenchman. While the other two judges saw it the same, 48-47 to the new Cage Warriors featherweight champion Jordan Vucenic.
Despite the loss, Charrière still believes he had done enough to have won the fight telling the Cage Warriors’ website:
“I think I won the first fight, I’m still the champion.”
“The rematch will be a completely different fight, I will make a statement.”
While Vucenic is excited to prove why he is the champion, looking to silence any doubters in the rematch.
“I believe this fight is going to be fought at a crazy pace, with lots of action, and a shocking end before the final bell.”
“I’m very excited to defend my belt and show why I’m destined for greatness in this sport,” he told the organization’s website.
Vucenic actually called for a rematch with title contender Paul Hughes following his victorious claiming of the title at Cage Warriors 122.
