Chris Fishgold will defend his lightweight crown against Alexander Jacobsen in the Cage Warriors 88 headliner.
The European promotion announced the contest on Thursday. Cage Warriors 88 takes place at Echo Arena in Liverpool, England on Oct. 28. The main card will stream on UFC Fight Pass.
Fishgold enters the matchup on a six-bout winning streak. The Englishman claimed the vacant 155-pound belt with a first-round submission of Adam Boussif and has since defended the title with triumphs over Jason Ponet and Nic Herron-Webb. The Next Generation UK standout is 16-1 as a professional, including 11 victories via submission.
A native of Bergen, Norway, Jacobsen has won eight consecutive contests since dropping his professional MMA debut in March 2014. “Bad Romance” last appeared at Cage Warriors 84, where he captured a unanimous verdict against Tom Green.
