Anton Kuivanen (23-8) will take another step towards getting back to the UFC as he looks for his fourth straight win under the CAGE banner on November 21. The promotion released today that the GB Gym fighter will be facing undefeated French fighter Thibault Gouti (10-0) on the CAGE 33 card at the usual Helsinki Culture House.
Kuivanen avenged a loss to Eric Reynolds and reclaimed the belt back in September as he defeated the American in dominant fashion.
Gouti is no stranger to the Finns that attended the CAGE 29 card, as he stopped Mikael Nyyssonen in less than a minute with a KO. He has also finished his last four opponents.
