UFC veteran Anton Kuivanen (21-8) will face off with England’s Sean Carter (10-1) at CAGE 30’s main event on May 16th at the Helsinki Culture House. The promotion announced the matchup today. “The fight will be a lot of fun since his style seems to have none of running away or clinging to a leg, but instead eagerly stepping into striking range where all the action happens!” says Kuivanen, who is coming off a recent win at CAGE 29 over Sergej Grecicho.

Carter comes into the bout with a three fight winning streak, with all the wins coming in Cage Warriors. He also started his pro career with 7 wins. He comes out of BKK fighters in England.

“I’m gonna dominate the fight in every area. Carter is a respectable challenge, but I’m positive that I can finnish the fight either by KO or submission” – Kuivanen
