In a breaking announcement, Cage Warriors confirm that Danish UFC veteran Mads Burnell has replaced Søren Bak as Dean Trueman’s opponent for CW106: Night of Champions.

Earlier this week, Cage Warriors announced that interim featherweight champion Søren Bak was no longer willing to cut the weight necessary to make the 145lbs featherweight limit, and were seeking a new replacement for Dean Trueman for their biggest card of all time on June 29th in London.

Mads Burnell stepped up just days later, eager for a shot at featherweight gold – something he has promised his fans since leaving the UFC and joining the Cage Warriors roster last year.

Trueman’s road to the belt began with a hard fought win over Corrin Eaton at CW92, then going on to beat Lewis Monarch and Aiden Lee in the featherweight title tournament.  Burnell boasts quick submission wins over Rajewski and Ahmed Vila in the last 6 months. 

Trueman vs Burnell is the fifth of six world title fights set for CW106: Night of Champions, alongside Jack Grant vs Jai Herbert, Nicolas Dalby vs Ross Houston, James Webb vs Nathias Frederick and Marthin Hamlet vs Modestas Bukauskas.

Tickets for CW106: Night of Champions – Cage Warriors biggest event of all time – are on sale
