Cage Warriors recently announced that Cage Warriors 109 will take place in Birmingham and Dean Trueman was announced as one of fighters to feature on the card. Trueman’s opponent on the Birmingham show will be against Frenchman, Morgan Charriere.
Trueman will look to bounce back from losing his featherweight title at Cage Warriors 106 to former UFC fighter, Mads Burnell. The loss to Burnell snapped a three-fight win streak for Trueman that saw him capture the vacant title against Aiden Lee.
His opponent, Charriere, is highly touted and fought for the interim featherweight title on his Cage Warriors debut losing a close majority decision to Soren Bak. Charriere then won a close split decision against Lewis Monarch on the night of champions show, you can watch the full fight for free below.
Charriere has proven to be a very dynamic and explosive fighter that will give Trueman some challenges to overcome in this contest. Trueman is known for his aggressive style which will likely gel with Charriere’s style and lead to an exciting featherweight contest.
There could be a lot at stake in this one as the winner of this fight has a real possibility of challenging for the title in their next bout. Trueman will be looking to get through Charriere and secure a rematch with Mads Burnell to reclaim his title whereas Charriere is looking to beat a former champion and securing a title shot in just three Cage Warriors bouts.
