Announced earlier today, Cage Warriors have revealed a big light-heavyweight showdown between former The Ultimate Fighter competitors Norman Paraisy and Kenneth Bergh for Cage Warriors 84.
Cage Warriors 84 will take place on Friday, June 2 at The Indigo at the O2 in London, England with the venue being declared Cage Warriors adopted ‘home’ in recent times.
Paraisy has competed in both Cage Warriors and Bellator previously, as well as taking part in both seasons 11 and 23 of TUF where he was eliminated early in the competition each time. The Frenchman last fought competitively at Cage Warriors 69 in 2014 where he was defeated by Jack Hermansson via a fourth round submission.
The 30-year-old who fights out of Paris, France, fought most of his career in the middleweight division. However, he stepped up to light-heavyweight to take part in TUF 23, where he was defeated early in the competition by Elias Urbina and remains in the 205lb division for his first bout since 2014.
Norwegian prospect Bergh is currently undefeated and most recently defeated Ross Cooper at CW Unplugged last November. Like his opponent, “Ymir” also took part in TUF 23 but was eliminated by Eric Spicely in the opening rounds of the competition.
The 27-year-old made his professional debut in 2013 and has finished all of his opponents by submission so far. His most notable win came over UK MMA veteran Brett McDermott at Clash of the Titans 16.
