Cage Warriors 55 took place on June 1 from The Helix in Dublin, Ireland.

In the main event, Cathal Pendred defeated former UFC competitor Che Mills by TKO in the third round in a non-title bout. Mills did not make weight prior to the event, so Pendred’s welterweight belt was not on the line. In the co-main event, Neil Seery submitted Mikael Silander by armbar to win the inaugural CWFC flyweight title.
