Cage Warriors 56 main card set with Olivier-Berisha, Turner-Narimani


graham-turner.jpgWith a slew of new fight bookings, the main card is set for next month’s Cage Warriors 56 event.

The show takes place July 6 at the Forum in London. The main card streams on MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following Facebook prelims.

New main-card matchups include featherweights Robbie Olivier (19-9) vs. Patrik Berisha (6-3), featherweights Graham Turner (22-7) vs. Nad Narimani (5-0), and a 160-pound catchweight fight between Warren Kee (7-2-1) and Philip Mulpeter.

Olivier, an English submission specialist, enters the organization with a three-fight win streak and past wins over the likes of Ronnie Mann, Brad Pickett and Samy Schiavo. He takes on Albanian-Swiss fighter Berisha, who’s won four of his past five (with one no-contest), all via stoppage.

Turner, meanwhile, is riding a four-fight fight win streak that includes recent Cage Warriors knockouts of Nathan Beer and Fouad Mesdari. The Scottish fighter takes on undefeated English competitor Narimani, who makes his promotional debut after a 5-0 start (with three stoppages) to his career.

Kee, an English fighter, looks to snap a three-fight winless (0-2-1) streak when he meets Irish fighter Mulpeter (5-3), who was on a 4-1 run before a recent loss to Tommy Quinn at Cage Warriors 51.

In addition to the main-card bouts, the organization today announced a prelim with undefeated lightweights Sean Carter (5-0) vs. Adam Boussif (3-0).
