Many of Scandinavia’s top fighting names met in Copenhagen this afternoon to weigh in for CW103 – Cage Warriors first return to Denmark in 5 years.
In the main event, Denmark’s own Nicolas Dalby (169.2 lbs) – a former UFC star and Cage Warriors Champion – will take on Alex Lohoré (169.9 lbs) for the Interim Welterweight Title after both men made championship weight successfully.
Almost exactly five years to the day since Dalby won the title at CW66, he is now on the cusp of becoming a two-time champion and securing another massive win in front of the home crowd. Lohoré has other ideas though, looking for his third straight finish after he stormed into the division with back-to-back TKOs last year.
The winner will face Ross Houston at a future date, in a chance to unify their Interim belt and crown themselves king of the division.
In the co-main and what was scheduled to be an Interim Featherweight Title bout, former Lightweight champion Søren ‘The True Viking’ Bak will challenge himself in the weight below against Morgan Charriere, who makes his Cage Warriors debut. Bak successfully made championship weight at 144.5lbs, giving him the chance to take home the Interim Title should he be victorious. However, Charriere came in 1.4lbs over the championship limit at 146.4lbs and so loses his shot at the title.
CW103’s main card will also feature Danish superstar Mark O. Madsen, who weighed in at 169.8lbs for his bout with Frenchman Thibaud Larchet (169.9lbs), and former UFC featherweight Mads Burnell (144.5lbs), who makes his second Cage Warriors appearance against Ahmed Vila (144.9lbs).
Doors at the K.B Hallen open at 5.30PM local time. CW103 is completely sold out.
The Main Card (from 8.30PM local time/ 7.30PM UK time) will be broadcast live on UFC FightPass. The Pro Preliminary card (from 6.40PM local time/ 5.40PM UK time) will be broadcast on Viaplay, as well as live and free for all on the Cage Warriors Facebook page.
