Hakon Foss (9-5) will return to the cage at the Cardiff Ice Arena on December 8th. “To fight for Cage Warriors on there 100 event is just a honor for me.” says Foss to MMA Viking

Foss will take on Aaron Khalid (8-4-1) in a welterweight bout at the landmark event for Cage Warriors. Khalid is currently on a 2 fight win streak, both coming via first round finish. The Welshman has secured in a finish in all but one of his pro wins to date.

“I wanted a big fight and wanted a fight before Christmas, I Khalid is maybe not a big name, But He has some good wins recently over Jamie Richardson that i lost to. And the 2 fights before that he went to decision (lost) twice with the newly crowned champ Ross Houston.” says the Frontline Academy fighter.

“Khalid is a dangerous scrappy fighter.”

The Norwegian has fought under the Cage Warriors banner 5 times already in his career. Last time out he snapped a 2 fight losing streak by stopping Jack Mason within 2 minutes with an impressive series strikes at Cage Warriors 93.
