Pimblett scored a fantastic flying triangle/armbar combo finish over Alexis Savvidis last month in his lightweight debut at Cage Warriors 90. It’d be the first fight back for “The Baddy” since losing his Featherweight strap to Nad Narimani last April via unanimous decision.
The promotion also announced a return to London for Cage Warriors 95 on July 21st. You can read the full press release in regards to both events here.
