The Cage Warriors 52 main card has seen a slight change due to an injury sustained by Mohsen Bahari. Taking his place against Bruno Carvalho will be promotional newcomer Steve Dinsdale.
“I’ve taken the fight with only two weeks’ notice, but I’m ready to fight,” said Dinsdale. “I’m feeling confident, and I’m hungry for the victory.”
Bahari’s injury was not made public.
Carvalho lost in his other Cage Warriors outing by decision to Cathal Pendred in October. It was his welterweight debut after being a middleweight since 2003.
Dinsdale is undefeated with five wins, in which four didn’t go past round one. He was used as an alternate on The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes.
Cage Warriors 52 comes from the HMV Forum in London on March 9. The main card streams for free at MMA Junkie. In the main event, Gael Grimaud defends his welterweight championship against Cathal Pendred.
