Cage Warriors 119 Odds
|Perry Andre Goodwin||+280|
Odds as of Dec. 10
Who Wins The Featherweight Belt?
Morgan Charriere is looking to finally get his hands on a Cage Warriors belt. The 25-year-old came up short against Soren Bak in 2019. But after Bak left for Bellator, he is looking to win the vacant 145-pound title.
Charriere & Goodwin Recent Fights
|Dean Trueman, win by TKO||Fight 1||Steve Aimable, win by decision|
|Lewis Monarch, win by split decision||Fight 2||Samir Alakozai, win by decision|
|Soren Bak, loss by majority decision (title fight)||Fight 3||Rhys McKee, loss by submission|
|Marko Kovacevic, draw||Fight 4||Alexander Gustafsson, win by TKO|
Morgan Charriere is one of the best featherweight prospects in the world and if he wins the featherweight title could very well be signed to the UFC or Bellator. However, he does have his hands full against Perry Andre Goodwin who is a former lightweight and will likely be stronger than Charriere.
This should be a really good fight between two high-level strikers. Throughout his career, Goodwin has had problems with grapplers and getting submitted. However, Charriere isn’t known for his grappling, so that shouldn’t be a problem for him.
Charriere vs Goodwin Stats
|1||Cage Warriors finishes||2|
Early, on I expect Goodwin to use his height and range to try and keep Charriere at a distance and use his jab to pick him apart. However, Charriere has solid footwork that he will be able to use to get inside and land the big shots. Although Charreire should be able to piece up Goodwin, I do worry about his power as I don’t know if he will be able to KO the 28-year-old.
Ultimately, I expect Charriere to be the much more active striker and do enough to win a clear-cut decision to win the vacant belt.
Pick: Morgan Charriere (-360)
Is The Second Time The Charm For Jack Grant?
Jack Grant lost to now UFC fighter Jai Herbert back in 2019 for Cage Warriors vacant lightweight title, and is now getting a second shot at winning the belt.
Grant & Sardari Recent Fights
|Yassine Belhadj, win by submission||Fight 1||Amin Kuliev, win by KO|
|Jai Herbert, loss by TKO (title fight)||Fight 2||Ruslan Abrekov, win by submission|
|Aleksi Mantykivi, win by TKO||Fight 3||Yutaka Saito, win by decision|
|Mehdi Dakaev, win by decision||Fight 4||Mauro Seoane, win by submission|
Jack Grant does everything Agy Sardari does but better. Both men are great grapplers but Grant has competed in some high-profile grappling events.
On the feet, Grant has gotten a lot better in his striking defense and has shown he has KO power. A big question for both men is their cardio and if they can go five rounds. However, I don’t expect it to go the distance as I like Grant to win by stoppage in the third or fourth round.
Pick: Jack Grant (-240)
Other Cage Warriors 119 Picks:
- Paul Hughes (-180): Hughes is set for the toughest test of his career, but I’m super high on him and expect him to get a submission win.
- Ian Garry (-425): This is a setup fight for Garry to get another stoppage win and should win by first-round KO. A parlay of Garry and Charriere is a solid bet.
- Kieran Lister (-285): I don’t know why Bellator let Lister go as I expect him to KO McColgan in the first or second round.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
