CWFC Fight Night 6: Ling v Carlos
THE card for CWFC Fight Night 6 in Manama, Bahrain on Thursday, May 24 is now complete, with the addition of the middleweight clash of Mike Ling and Alan Carlos.
Ling (9-3-0), of Gym 01 in Portsmouth, will be making his third Cage Warriors appearance and will aim to build on his impressive second-round TKO win against Eric Cebarec at CWFC Fight Night 5 in Amman, Jordan last month.
Carlos (6-6-0), a Brazilian now based in Sweden, is a BJJ black belt and will offer a stern test of Ling’s credentials in the Cage Warriors middleweight division.
Ling versus Carlos is the last of eight professional bouts to be confirmed for CWFC Fight Night 6, which takes place at the Khalifa Sports City a week on Thursday and will be the organisation’s sixth show in as many different countries in 2012.
