A pair of rising English contenders will collide in London as undefeated English middleweights Will Currie and Christian Duncan prepare to face off in Cage Warriors’ latest “Trilogy” series.

Cage Warriors officials confirmed to MMA Junkie that the pair will go head to head on the main card of Cage Warriors 120, which takes place Thursday, March 18 at York Hall. The event streams live on UFC Fight Pass, and forms the first leg of the promotion’s three-night “Trilogy” series at the venue.

The matchup will see two of England’s most promising up-and-coming 185-pounders face off in a bid to move one step closer to a shot at reigning Cage Warriors middleweight champion Nathias Frederick.

Currie (5-0) made an instant impact on his promotional debut at Cage Warriors 119 in December 2020 as he handed then-unbeaten Italian prospect Dario Bellandi his first career defeat in a dominant display in London.

Now “Drago” will return to action to face spectacular striker Duncan (2-0) whose transition to the professional ranks in 2020 saw him claim a pair of eye-catching knockout victories.

The IMMAF European silver and world bronze medallist finished Kyle McClurkin via second-round knockout on his professional debut at Cage Warriors 116 in September 2020, then followed up with a spectacular spinning back kick finish of Lucasz Marcinkowski at Cage Warriors 119 in December.

Also confirmed for the card is a featherweight bout between England’s James Hendin (5-0) and Irish prospect Paul Hughes (6-1). That bout was first announced by “The Bash” podcast.

With the additions, the confirmed lineup for Cage Warriors 120 includes:

  • James Hendin vs. Paul Hughes
  • Will Currie vs. Christian Duncan
