Cage Warriors Fighting Championship made its first trip to Denmark in five years on March 8 with CW 103 and it was a triumphant return, as native Danish fighters went 4-0 on the main card.
In the main event, former UFC welterweight contender Nicolas Dalby faced Alex Lohore. The interim welterweight title was on the line, as both men made championship weight successfully. Dalby displayed his striking finesse throughout the contest. A left hook from Dalby turned Lohore’s lights out during the third stanza, and referee Mark Goddard called the stop at 1:47 mark. Now Dalby will face CW welterweight champion Ross Houston in a chance to crown himself undisputed king of the division.
In the co-feature, former lightweight champion Soren Bak came down a weight class to test himself against Morgan Charriere. The CW interim featherweight title was on the line, but only for Bak, since Charriere came in 1.4 pounds over the championship limit. Bak proved himself to be the better man, overcoming the Frenchman Charriere via unanimous decision after five rounds of battle.
Danish superstar Mark O. Madsen bested Thibaud Larchet via unanimous decision in their welterweight main-card clash. Madsen showed his Olympic wrestling pedigree, dominating his opponent thoroughly for the entire contest.
In the first bout of the main card, former UFC featherweight Mads Burnell submitted Ahmed Vila via Japanese necktie at the 0:50 mark of the opening stanza. Burnell immediately secured a takedown which allowed him to set up the vicious submission and to take home the victory.
