Tommy Maguire will face Merv Mulholland at CWFC’s opening event of 2013, which is set for London’s HMV Forum on Saturday, March 9.
Maguire (14-5), who recently signed an exclusive Cage Warriors contract, will be making his CWFC debut on the back of a run of five wins in his last six outings.
The younger brother of UFC welterweight John Maguire, 25-year-old Tommy appeared on season nine of The Ultimate Fighter and hasn’t been stopped since a second-round TKO defeat to John Hathaway back in 2007.
Mulholland (10-4), who has taken eight of his 10 wins by first-round stoppage, will be looking for a third consecutive Cage Warriors victory on March 9.
The 22-year-old, who hails from Belfast, is currently ranked 14th in the UK and secured a Submission of the Night bonus for his defeat of Daniel Thomas at Cage Warriors 49 in Cardiff back in October.
Cage Warriors 52 will be headlined by a welterweight title bout between Cathal Pendred and defending champion Gael Grimaud and we’ll keep you posted with any event updates.
