CWFC Fight Night 3: Turner v Lahdesmaki
GRAHAM TURNER’S rise through the featherweight division will encounter a difficult obstacle next month when he takes on Matteus Lahdesmaki (pictured) at Cage Warriors Fight Night 3.
Turner (18-6-1) has won ten of his last 11 bouts and will be aiming for his third consecutive CWFC victory, having defeated Antanas Jazbutis and Ashleigh Grimshaw in 2011. The 24-year-old, a member of the Dinky Ninjas Fight Team in Glasgow, will face Lahdesmaki in Beirut on February 11.
Lahdesmaki (11-7-3) will be making his Cage Warriors debut. A native of Lahti in Finland, he’s an accomplished fighter with Shooto and M-1 Global experience.
The 28-year-old, who has secured nine of his 11 professional victories via submission, notable victories over the likes of Olivier Pastor and Chad George on his record.
Cage Warriors matchmaker Ian Dean said: “This is another really exciting addition to our card for the show in Beirut. Graham Turner’s career has been on an upward curve for a while now but I believe he’ll get a very tough test from Matteus Lahdesmaki.
“Matteus is a guy I’ve followed for many years, he’s got a very solid background and I’m glad to have him on the show.”
