Carvalho Set for Next Cage Warriors Bout

London, England (January 24, 2013) – A MAJOR international welterweight bout has been added to the card for Cage Warriors 52.

Mohsen Bahari and Bruno Carvalho will clash on the organisation’s first show of 2013, which takes place at London’s HMV Forum on Saturday, March 9.

Bahari (5-0) will be aiming for a second successive Cage Warriors victory after he defeated Piotr Ptasinski at CWFC Fight Night 7 in Jordan back in September, a bout that was voted Fight of the Year by Cage Warriors fans.

The unbeaten 28-year-old, who fights out of Team Hellboy in Norway, has taken three of his four other wins by first-round stoppage.

Carvalho (14-6) will be eager to rebound from his decision loss to Cathal Pendred in the main event at Cage Warriors 49 in Cardiff back in October.

Cage Warriors 52 will be headlined by a welterweight title bout between Cathal Pendred and defending champion Gael Grimaud.
