Cage Warriors 148 goes down tonight live at the Indigo o2 in London England.
Two title fights between Modestas Bukauskas vs. Chuck Campbell for the vacant light-heavyweight championship. Former UFC fighter Bukauskas (12-5) will look to win his belt back and have his eyes set back to the UFC. Campbell (5-1) faces his best opponent to date, which could potentially launch the American to the promise land of the UFC.
The final championship bout, is between two very experienced fighters. Sam Creasey (16-4) will set up a rematch with his old foe Shajidul Haque (14-5). Creasey will look to make history again as he seeks to make another defence of his title. The first meeting took place between the two when both fighters were looking to make a name for themselves in 2017.
The main event was originally supposed to be a middleweight title fight between champion and hot prospect Christian Leroy Duncan, who would have been defending his title against TUF 25 winner Jesse Taylor. However, Taylor was injured in a hit-and-run this morning and was forced to pull out of the fight.
Also on the card; former UFC fighter Darren Stewart and Wilson Reis take place on the undercard. As well, prospects like; Nathan Fletcher, Omiel Brown, Damon Wilson and Adam Meskini are all set to go down on a stacked undercard.
