Cage Warriors 50: Nilsson v Sutherland
(PRESS RELEASE) -- London, England (November 13, 2012) - CAGE
WARRIORS officials have today confirmed the addition of an exciting
middleweight bout to the main card for Cage Warriors 50, which
takes place at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow on Saturday, December
Nilsson and Denniston
Sutherland will face each other in the Scottish capital after
both fighters were successful in their debut Cage Warriors
appearances earlier this year.
Nilsson (9-2-1), who hails from Helsingborg in Sweden, scored an
impressive second-round submission win against two-time UFC veteran
Tommy Speer at CWFC Fight Night 3 in Beirut back in February. That
win earned the 28-year-old a five-fight Cage Warriors contract.
A black belt in judo, Nilsson is currently eighth in the European
middleweight rankings. His only losses – both by decision – have
come against top Finnish pair Tor Troeng and
Sutherland (18-8) disposed of Brett
Sizeland by first-round TKO at July’s Cage Warriors 48 in
London. The 39-year-old went on to comprehensively defeat Leeroy
Barnes by unanimous decision in September.
A Jamaican fighter based in England, Sutherland is ranked 11th in
the UK and has recorded other notable victories over Cage Warriors
Phillips and Jack Mason, as
well as former UFC middleweight Mark Weir.
Cage Warriors 50 will also feature the likes top Scottish-based
McVeigh and Graham
Turner, with more fights set to be announced this week.
