Finn Jussi Halonen will look to make it three straight wins as he enters the cage against France’s Julien Piednoir at Cage 32 on October 23 in Helsinki. The story however will be revenge, as the Hardknocks Helsinki fighter will try and do what teammate Mikko Ahmala couldn’t do at Cage 29, as he was submitted by the Frenchman in February.
The bout announced today by the Cage promotion put together the 3rd complete bout of the card. Halonen has come back from two consecutive losses at Cage 21 and Cage 23, to win by DQ at Cage Warriors 66 and then by TKO at Cage 29. The huge wrestling welterweight targeted Piednoir immediately after beating Ahmala.
The ABS Team fighter won the first four fights of his career. Since then, he has only won one of three bouts, which was the rear-naked choke over Mikko Ahmala.
