Paddy Pimblett will be putting his Cage Warriors featherweight title on the line for the second time.
Cage Warriors announced on Tuesday that Pimblett will be facing Nad Narimani in the main event of CW 82 on April 1. The bout takes place at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England and will air live on UFC Fight Pass.
Pimblett (13-1) is on a nine-fight win streak with his most recent victory being a unanimous decision over Julian Erosa last November. Prior to that, he TKO’ed Johnny Frachery in just over 90 seconds to win the 145-lb title.
