JAMES BRUM will aim for his fourth CWFC win of 2012 when he takes on Moktar Benkaci at Cage Warriors 51 on New Year’s Eve.
The pair will clash in a bantamweight bout on the December 31 card at The Helix in Dublin for Cage Warriors’ second visit to the Irish capital this year.
The event will be co-headlined by a pair of title bouts as Chris Fields defends his middleweight strap for the first time against Jesse Taylor, followed by the meeting of Conor McGregor and Ivan Buchinger for the vacant lightweight belt.
Brum (10-2), who trains alongside UFC flyweight Phil Harris at Portsmouth’s Gym 01, has made massive strides in the 135lbs division this year, rising to fourth in the European rankings courtesy of wins over Leandro Gontijo, Thomas Back and James Saville.
Benkaci (8-3), a highly-rated Frenchman with an impressive CV, moves down to bantamweight to face Brum having dropped a decision loss to top-ten European featherweight Joni Salovaara in October.
