Cage Warriors 103 adds UFC vets Nicolas Dalby and Mads Burnell, Olympian Mark Madsen
Cage Warriors will be in Copenhagen in March for the first time since 2014, and three big names have been added to the show.
UFC veteran welterweight Nicolas Dalby (16-3-1) will be part of the show in front of his home fans. So will Denmark native and fellow UFC vet Mads Burnell (10-3). Also on the card will be Danish Olympic wrestling medalist Mark Madsen (6-0). All three fighters are awaiting opponents.
Cage Warriors 103 takes place March 9 at K.B. Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark. The card will stream on UFC Fight Pass.
“March 9 will be a celebration of how far the MMA scene in Denmark has come,” Cage Warriors President Graham Boylan stated. “Some of the most elite fighters on our roster have come from Denmark, including current and former champions, and the rising talent coming through the Cage Warriors Academy Denmark is proving that the scene is growing faster than ever before. This event is for the Danish fighters and fans that have helped the country’s fight scene to thrive.”
Dalby will return to the city he won Cage Warriors’ welterweight title nearly five years later. At Cage Warriors 66 in March 2014, he knocked out Sergei Churilov in the fourth round to win the vacant belt. He defended the title later that year, then moved to the UFC.
In the UFC, he went 1-2-1 and was cut loose. After a loss at Cage Warriors 93 gave him three straight setbacks, he has bounced back with two straight stoppage wins at Cage Warriors 96 in September and Cage Warriors 100 earlier this month.
