2020 Cage Warriors: The Trilogy Expert Analysis
In the world of MMA, we are used to seeing events come at a regular clip, but what Cage Warriors is doing is truly something out of the ordinary. Instead of returning with a single fight night, they are delivering 3 straight nights of action starting on Thursday, September 24 with Cage Warriors 114. Events 115 and 116 will come on Friday and Saturday, with all bouts held behind closed doors at the BEC Arena in Manchester, England. There will be more than 50 fighters at The Trilogy, not to mention 5 title fights over the course of the 3 nights. You can catch all the action on UFC Fight Pass, so now might be the time to get in on that. There are too many fights to cover in one spot, so let’s instead focus on the title bouts so you can make your bets against their Cage Warriors odds.

Samir Faiddine Vs Luke Shanks – CW 114 Thursday
The flyweights are up first in the title bouts, with Samir Faiddine, who fights out of France, going against Luke Shanks. The 27-year old comes into this one with an 11-6 career mark after turning around a losing skid with back to back wins in his last 2 fights. Scottish fighter Luke Shanks, who is 6-1 in his career, comes in as the challenger on the heels of a 3-fight win streak. This should be a tough battle, but I am on Shanks to win.
Nathias Frederick Vs Jamie Richardson – CW 115 Friday
The middleweights will contest the first of two title fights set for Friday night. After going 0-2 to start his pro career, Frederick has now gone unbeaten in 9 and comes in as the champion with an 8-2-1 record. Jamie Richardson, who is 9-5, may well have a tough time of it here, but with back to back wins under his belt, he won’t be short on confidence. Still, I like Frederick to retain his title.
Jack Cartwright Vs Gerardo Fanny – CW 115 Friday
The headline event of the night is a bantamweight title bout that features Jack Cartwright looking to keep his belt against Gerardo Fanny. Cartwright is a perfect 8-0 in his career, as well as a winner of 3 in a row under the Cage Warriors banner. Fanny is no slouch, coming into this fight with a 9-1 career mark. This, though, is a bit of a step up in class, so I am all over Cartwright for the win.
Morgan Charriere Vs Max Coga – CW 116 Saturday
The vacant featherweight title is up for grabs here, with two very good fighters looking to get their hands on the belt. Charriere comes in with an 11-6-1 record, with 6 of those wins coming via the KO, so he does have some power. Max Coga is the more experienced fighter, plus he is more of an all-round fighter. He has 20 wins, 8 by KO and 9 via submission. Coga has more tools and looks like the winner here.
Mason Jones Vs Adam Proctor – CW 116 Saturday
There are a lot of great fights scheduled this weekend, but this one is the final bout of The Trilogy for a reason. Jones and Proctor will square off for the vacant welterweight title in what should be a beauty. These two fighters have just 1 career loss between them – Jones is 9-0, while Proctor is 12-1 – so this really is a toss-up. Expect this to be a grappling affair from start to finish, with the slight edge going to Proctor.
