Cage Warriors have announced a new batch of UK-based cards for the latter end of 2022. The November 12th card has just been given its championship main event! Cage Warriors 146 takes place in Manchester on November 12th and is building up to be a great card. Undefeated middleweight champion Christian Leroy Duncan (6-0) is set to defend his belt against Bulgarian Marian Dimitrov (10-2) who is sporting a 10-fight win streak ahead of this bout.
Christian Leroy Duncan
Christian Leroy Duncan is no stranger to being in the spotlight in the Cage Warriors octagon. Fighting all 6 of his professional bouts in the British organization. The middleweight champion is fresh off of his title victory, winning the belt off of Ivorian fighter Djati Melan in April. The 27-year-old walked through the middleweight division. The champion’s most notable wins involve back-to-back victories over Will Currie. This upcoming fight looks sure to be a banger, and with Leroy Duncan sporting 5 finishes from his 6 victories, it looks unlikely the judges will be needed.
A name you may not have heard of before. Dimitrov is a Bulgarian fighter who has not faced defeat since 2014 and has since won 10 fights in a row. This upcoming fight in November will be Marian’s first bout in over 3 years, after having 2 fights cancelled in that span. The most recent came in February when the Bulgarian was set to face Fabian Edwards in Bellator. Dimitrov has 7 knockouts to his resume and will be hoping to make it 8 in Manchester this November.
