Dinsdale replaces injured Bahari at Cage Warriors 52
Mar 4, 2013
(PRESS RELEASE) -- London, England (February 27, 2013) - Mohsen
Bahari (pictured) has withdrawn from his bout against Bruno
Carvalho at Cage Warriors 52.
The unbeaten Norwegian sustained an injury in training last
weekend, forcing him to pull out of the welterweight clash that was
scheduled for the main card at The Forum in London on March 9.
Bahari (5-0) will be replaced by an Englishman with an identical
record, with Steve Dinsdale signing up to make his Cage Warriors
debut against Carvalho (14-6).
Dinsdale (5-0), who fights out of Next Generation in Liverpool, is
an unbeaten welterweight who has taken four of his five
professional wins by first-round stoppage.
The 27-year-old hasn’t fought since last April having been placed
on standby throughout the UFC’s recent series of TUF Smashes.
“I’m really excited to be making my Cage Warriors debut, especially
against a high-level opponent like Bruno
Carvalho,” said Dinsdale.
“I’ve been trying to get a fight on Cage Warriors for a while so I
jumped at this chance when it came. I’ve taken the fight with only
two weeks’ notice but I’m ready to fight, I’m feeling confident and
I’m hungry for the victory.”
