Nicolas Dalby (14-2-1) has been announced as an upcoming fighter on April 28. The event, Cage Warriors 93, will go down at the Lisebergshallen in Gothenburg and will be the promotions first visit to Sweden.
The Rumble Sports fighter has been very visible outside the cage by commentating fights for Cage Warriors and on air UFC commentary for Viaplay. The Sharpshooter revealed on social media yesterday that he would return to the cage, and today it became official.
The Dane fought four times in the Octagon with a record of 1 win, 2 losses, and 1 draw. The 32-year-old won in a split decision over Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos in his UFC debut, had a majority draw versus Darren Till, then ended with back-to-back losses to Zak Cummings and Peter Sobotta.
Last March, he was notified that he was cut from the UFC. “And now it’s up to me to show the world that nobody puts Dalby in the corner… (I’ll) go to the gym and train harder than I ever did before. I’ll be back. Stronger and more dangerous than ever!” said the Dane after the news.
Dalby was the Cage Warriors champion back in 2014, where he defended the belt twice.
“Some of the most exciting guys ever to fight for Cage Warriors have come from Scandinavia,” Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan said. “We’re giving them a platform to put on an incredible show for Scandi fight fans alongside Viaplay, one of the most respected broadcasters in the region. Scandinavian fans are world famous for the amazing atmosphere they create. April 28th is going to be incredible.”
