Last night Cage Warriors announced a huge fight for Irish MMA as SBG's Philip Mulpeter (9-5) will meet UFC veteran Nicolas Dalby (15-3-1) at Cage Warriors 100 on December 8 in Wales.
Mulpeter, who also goes by the aptly named moniker 'The Honeybadger' due to his willingness to meet anyone head on, is currently on a two-fight-winning-streak, his first since 2012, after impressive submission wins over Ali Arish and Jan Quaeyhaegens, respectively.
The welterweight cemented his place in Irish MMA history as one of the most enjoyable fighters to watch due to his back-to-back wars with Richie Gorey and John Donnelly on the local scene in 2012.
However, he will need to channel these performances when he comes up against Nicolas Dalby. The 32-year-old Danish fighter fought four times for the UFC between 2015 & 2016 and even fought Darren Till to a draw at UFC Dublin. Prior to joining the UFC he went 14-0 as a professional and captured the Cage Warriors welterweight title.
