Conor McGregor v Steve O’Keeffe
HAVING been announced as the latest addition to the CWFC 45 card last week, Cage Warriors can confirm that Steve O’Keeffe (5-1-0) will clash with Conor McGregor at the February 18 show at London’s HMV Forum.
McGregor (9-2-0), of the SBG team in Dublin, impressed at Cage Warriors Fight Night 2 in Amman, Jordan in September when disposing of Aron Jahnsen via TKO (punches) after just 3.29 of the first round.
The 23-year-old is renowned for his striking ability and fast finishes, having been taken outside the first round just twice in his eleven professional bouts to date.
However, he’ll face one of his toughest challenges yet against 25-year-old O’Keeffe, who submitted Dean Reilly inside the first minute of their Cage Warriors 44 meeting in October.
Two more fights have also been confirmed for Cage Warriors 45 in London next February.
It’ll be a middleweight ‘Battle of the Bretts’, with Brett Sizeland confirmed to meet CWFC debutant Brett Bassett (7-2-0), while Ben Hajir will take on Michael Jones in a flyweight bout.
