Pair Of Familiar Fights Joins Cage Warriors 52

Two more fights have been added to Cage Warriors 52 as bantamweight action sees Liam James (6-4) taking on Alan Philpott (7-3) and a middleweight rematch between Brett Bassett (8-3) and Brett Sizeland (6-2).

James and Philpott were set to meet at the previous show before a knee injury caused the fight to be postponed. After James dropped down to featherweight, he lost via submission to Olivier Pastor in his debut as a lighter fighter. Philpott is 1-1 for Cage Warriors and is also coming off a submission loss at the hands of Mike Wotten.

Sizeland, who is now 3-2 for the promotion, won his first encounter against Bassett after the ringside doctor stopped the fight during the second round. Bassett bounced back with a 38 second knockout over Mike Ling.

Cage Warriors 52 will be the first event for the promotion in 2013 and takes place on March 9 from the HMV Forum in England. Welterweight champion Gael Grimaud vs. Cathal Pendred headlines the show.

Broadcasting information will be released shortly.
