Suvi Salmimies (7-5-1) will face Argentina’s Pámela Aguirre (5-2) at CAGE 42 on February 17 at the Helsinki Culture House. The promotion announced the matchup today.
Salmimies is a long-time veteran of Cage with 9 of her 13 total bouts have come with the leading Finnish promotion. She has amassed an overall record of 7 wins, 5 losses and 1 draw.
The Finn is ranked #4 in the 135 lbs Nordic Rankings, and will head into this bout coming off a loss at Cage 40. She went the distance with Zarah Fairn who had won 4 of her 6 pro bouts.
Aguirre was born in Paraguay, but is now fighting out of Argentina. The BJJ Hinojal Team fighter is also coming off of a loss in her USA debut where she was stopped in the first round. Prior to this loss, she had won 5 of 6 bouts. She is a BJJ Black Belt, which should make for an interesting bout as Suvi likes to get takedowns and work for control and ground and pound.
UFC veteran Anton Kuivanen (24-10-0) will face Brazilian Junior Maranhão (15-6) in the headliner for the event.
