Cage Warriors Night of Champions-Rhys McKee Preview and Predictions

Ross Houston vs Nicholas Dalby -Welterweight title

What a main event we have, the unbeaten Houston is on a 9-0 tear and has never seemed more confident that victory is his! He faces the tough UFC veteran in Nicholas Dalby. Dalby knows a victory could secure his return to the promotion! I know I’d love a chance to fight one of these guys!

Rhys’ official prediction-Houston by decision

Jai Herbert vs Jack Grant-Lightweight title

What a fight and one I have been struggling with calling. I can see Jai coming in using his movement and keeping Grant guessing, on the flip side I see Grant looking to pressure Herbert to the cage and secure the takedown which won’t be no easy task considering how Herbert victory over Steve O’ Keefe went! This is another fight I wouldn’t be surprised if either man walked away with the victory! Ultimately I have to go with my gut.

Rhys’ official prediction-Jai Herbert by rd3 TKO

Dean Trueman vs Mads Burnell-Featherweight title

Dean Trueman was due to defend his title against Soren Bak, but Bak did not want to cut the weight so Trueman is now set to fight UFC vet Mads Burnell. This is another one that could really go either way, I believe it will be a decision victory for either fighter but I have to go with my gut feeling again.

Rhys’ official prediction-Dean Trueman by decision

James Webb vs Nathias Fredrick-Middleweight title

Nathias Fredrick is coming in to challenge the tough Team KF fighter in James Webb, Fredrick will relish in the challenge but I believe the championship will be staying with the current champion in Webb who will defend his title for the very first time.

Rhys’ official prediction-James Webb rd1 submission

Sam Creasy vs Samir Faiddine-Flyweight title

The first fight on the main card where one of the world title fights will be on offer and this for the Flyweight title! Creasy coming off a solid win against Andy Young, I can expect him to walk away with the finish victory against the tough Faiddine!

Rhys’ official prediction-Creasy RD 2 TKO
