Sweden based Brazilian Alan Carlos (12-9) is back in action this Saturday at Cage Warriors 93 going down at the Lisebergshallen on April 28.  “It is awesome to finally be back competing and doing it In my hometown makes it even better! So yeah, I’m looking forward to fighting in Gothenburg in front of my family and friends.” says the Brazilian Viking to MMA Viking.

IMG_8466Carlos based in nearby Halmstad hasn’t fought since CWFC 75 in April of 2016, when he was stopped in a middle title challenge to now UFC fighter Jack Hermansson.

“I’ve had some unfortunate injuries which hindered me from fighting the past few years, but also, I needed to focus on my gym, Halmstad MMA, which now is better and stronger than ever!” says Carlos.

Alan will face Norman Paraisy (15-5-2-1) who was at light heavyweight in his last bout, which was a loss to undefeated Kenneth Bergh.  Paraisy is a long time veteran of the game and former middleweight Cage Warriors title challenger. The 32-year-old will have experience on his side as he turned pro in 2006 with only 1 loss in 13 of his first fights. The Cage Warriors vet won four straight bouts from 2013-2014.

Carlos is submission specialist with heavy hands who is 5-2 in his last seven outings.

“The camp has been great! Finally got a fight on good notice, which made it possible to get in a good fighting shape both mentally and physically. Now is my time to make a run for it. Hopefully I get the opportunity to, once again, fight for the Cage Warriors title after demolishing Paraisy. He is an experienced and skilled opponent, but I am very confident that it will be a great for Halmstad MMA, Gothenburg and of course, myself.”
