Charrière comes into the fight off the back of a split decision victory against Croatian knockout specialist Daniel Bažant, which had followed on from a duo of successive decision losses to Jordan Vucenic and Paul Hughes respectively.
This will be the Frenchman’s eighth appearance within the promotion, with a Cage Warriors record of 4-3 (2KOs). A former champion, Charrière held the belt at 145 lbs in 2020 after beating Perry Andre Goodwin with a devastating body shot in the third round.
English featherweight Hendin also returns to the octagon victorious from his previous bout, overcoming fellow contender Araik Margarian two minutes into the first round via rear naked choke submission.
The 25-year-old will be looking to build on his 7-2 professional record, and similarly to Charrière is well aware of Irishman Paul Hughes, who handed Hendin his first career loss.
Most fans will be predicting a tough fight for both men, given ‘The Last Pirate‘s willingness to stand and trade alongside Hendin’s durability and stamina.
The next fighter to earn a featherweight title shot in the near future against Hughes may possibly be decided by the victor at Cage Warriors 150.
