Che Mills’ June Cage Warriors return didn’t go as planned. His welterweight championship shot against Cathal Pendred became a non-title affair when Mills missed weight. He ended up forfeiting 25 percent of his purse and didn’t even leave the victor.
Cage Warriors Fight Night 9 now has a co-main event of Mills vs. Faycal Hucin in a middleweight contest.
Mills was 2-1-1 NC during his two year run for the UFC. The victories were round one stoppages over Chris Cope and Duane Ludwig.
Hucin comes out of France and has won seven of his past eight. He earned a first round submission over Antoni Chmielewski earlier in the year.
Cage Warriors Fight Night 9 is October 25 from the Khalifa Sports City in Bahrain. Main card fights stream at MMA Junkie with prelims on Facebook.
Below is the updated card.
Bruno “B.C.” Carvalho vs. Gael Grimaud
Faycal Hucin vs. Che Mills
