Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett will make the 2nd defence of his CWFC featherweight title against Nad Narimani in front of hometown fans at Cage Warriors 82.
Pimblett (13-1) makes his return to the venue where he first claimed Cage Warriors gold by knocking out Johnny Frachey at CWFC 78 in Liverpool last September.
The 22-year old would successfully defend his belt, despite controversial circumstances at Cage Warriors Unplugged where he defeated TUF semi-finalist Julian Erosa via unanimous decision last November.
When the Next Generation Liverpool trained fighter enters the Echo Arena he will look to extend his unbeaten run to 10-fights and solidify his status as one of the top featherweights in Europe.
Speaking ahead of his hometown return, Pimblett said: “I won the title in Liverpool, so there’s absolutely no way I’m going to lose it here.”
“This is my city, my arena and my title. Expect another huge party – and another huge win – when I come back home to defend my belt.”
Narimani will look to claim his 10th career win and the CWFC title
Narimani (9-2) will be looking to earn his third successive victory since being on the wrong end of a unanimous decision defeat to Alex Enlund in his first attempt at claiming Cage Warriors gold at Cage Warriors 73 in November 2014.
Since the set back the 29-year old has claimed back-to-back stoppage victories over Jeremy Petley at BAMMA 23 and most recently against Daniel Requeijo at Cage Warriors 76.
Narimani will surely be the toughest test of Pimblett’s career to date and the Iron Mann MMA trained fighter will step into the CWFC cage looking to derail the Liverpudlian’s hype train when the pair meet.
Cage Warriors 82 takes places at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on April 1 and MMA Plus will be on hand to bring you up to the minute news and results from the event.
