Announcement – Swede Bielkheden Set To Face Pendred at Cage Warriors 47
Cage Warriors announced today that former UFC fighter David Bielkheden will be on the Cage Warriors FC 47 card that will take place in Dublin on June 2nd.
Cathal Pendred will have home backing for his welterweight clash with David Bielkheden, which will undoubtedly be the biggest test of Pendred’s career to date.
The 25-year-old Dublin native (9-2-0) will be fighting for the first time since his draw against Danny Mitchell at CWFC Fight Night 2 in Jordan last September.
Bielkheden (17-10-0), a 32-year-old Swede, is a ten-year veteran of the sport and fought three times in the UFC between March 2008 and April 2009, a spell during which he defeated Jess Liaudin but suffered losses to Diego Sanchez and Mark Bocek.
“We’ve already staged so many big shows this year and there are plenty more to come, but I can promise you that Cage Warriors 47 will be one of our biggest and best yet,” said CWFC director Graham Boylan.
“We’ll be adding several more exciting bouts to this card over the coming weeks, but these two fights will be absolute crackers. There’s no doubt about that.
“Conor and Cathal are two of Ireland’s top talents so to have them both fighting in their own backyard with so much at stake is something to really look forward to.
“The demand for tickets for this will subsequently be huge so the atmosphere at The Helix should be electric, but both Conor and Cathal will be facing extremely tough opposition in Dave Hill and David Bielkheden. This has all the makings of another top show.”
