Dinsdale replaces injured Bahari
MOHSEN Bahari (pictured) has withdrawn from his bout against Bruno Carvalho at Cage Warriors 52.
The unbeaten Norwegian sustained a fractured leg in training last weekend, forcing him to pull out of the welterweight clash that was scheduled for the main card at The Forum in London on March 9.
Dinsdale (5-0), who fights out of Next Generation in Liverpool, is an unbeaten welterweight who has taken four of his five professional wins by first-round stoppage.
The 27-year-old hasn’t fought since last April having been placed on standby throughout the UFC’s recent series of TUF Smashes.
“I’m really excited to be making my Cage Warriors debut, especially against a high-level opponent like Bruno Carvalho,” said Dinsdale.
“I’ve been trying to get a fight on Cage Warriors for a while so I jumped at this chance when it came. I’ve taken the fight with only two weeks’ notice but I’m ready to fight, I’m feeling confident and I’m hungry for the victory.”
