Decky Dalton Steps In To face Paddy Pimblett In London

In an exciting late-notice shake-up on the Cage Warriors London card, Irish lightweight prospect Decky “The Diamond” Dalton (11-4) will now face former champion Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett (14-3).

Pimblett’s previous opponent, Davide Martinez, is unable to travel to London due to the travel restrictions currently imposed in Italy.

Dalton, who’s last win was just days ago, has taken advantage of the late-notice turnaround with the hopes of clinching a win over one of the biggest names on the Cage Warriors roster.

He fights out of Fight Academy Ireland alongside Joe McColgan, who will also compete on the card.

Raring to get back in the cage and forge a path back to the title, Paddy Pimblett has a stellar record fighting in the capital, having picked up wins against Ashley Grimshaw, Teddy Violet and ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ contender Julian Erosa in London in 2016.

Many more of the biggest names on the Cage Warriors roster are heading to London on March 20th, including Morgan Charrieré, who fights for the Interim Featherweight Title, and Flyweight Champion Samir Faiddine who makes the first defence of his belt against Luke Shanks.

Cage Warriors London is sold out. Fans can watch the action live from the Indigo at the O2 Arena on UFC Fight Pass.
