AARON WILKINSON will return to action at Cage Warriors 50 next month to face top Scottish prospect Alan Johnston in a welterweight bout.

Cage Warriors 50 will take place at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow on Saturday, December 8, as the organisation hosts a show in Scotland for the first time.

Wilkinson (10-5) signed a five-fight contract with Cage Warriors earlier this year and debuted for the organisation with a first-round victory against Leigh Cohoon at Cage Warriors 48: London back in July, earning a Submission of the Night bonus in the process.

The 25-year-old Wolfslair/SBG member, who hails from Manchester, came to prominence in 2010 as a member of Team Koscheck on The Ultimate Fighter 12 and subsequently fought once for the UFC, suffering a loss to current UFC competitor Cody McKenzie.

Johnston (6-1-1), who fights out of the Griphouse/Dinky Ninjas camp, will be making his first appearance on a Cage Warriors card having won six of his last seven bouts.

Ranked as one of the UK’s top 20 welterweights, 21-year-old Johnston’s most recent victory came in June courtesy of a stunning KO of highly-rated German welterweight Jessin Ayari.

Cage Warriors 50 will also feature the likes top Scottish-based pair Paul McVeigh and Graham Turner, with more fights to be announced in the coming days.
