We have a big Nordic showdown at Cage Warriors 80 as Sweden’s Fernando Gonzalez faces Norway’s Mohsen Bahari on February 18th. The promotion announced the welterweight matchup today that will go down at Indigo at the O2, London.

“Norway’s Bahari (9-3) is no stranger to UK MMA fans, having competed on these shores on several occasions, while Sweden’s Gonzalez (7-1) will be making his UK debut in a bout that will not only move the winner up the welterweight ladder, but also see the victor claim regional bragging rights.” read the announcement.

The Professor is coming off a CWFC 78 win back in September. He submitted a tough Ali Arish in the first round.

Gonzalez came back from a 2 year layoff due to injury to win at We Love MMA 24 last October, where he won by decision over Sebastian Reimitz.

The event is set to be headlined by a battle for the vacant CW welterweight title as Manchester’s Matt Inman (19-8) takes on French-German powerhouse Karl Amoussou (23-7-2).
