The main card line-up for Cage Warriors 52 is now complete following today’s addition of an exciting lightweight clash to the bill.

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.
