When @PaddyTheBaddy goes for the kill, he is spectacular

It’s not meant to be for Paddy Pimblett and Donovan Desmae to clash in the cage, at least not for now.
According to an official press release by the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship, Desmae has pulled out of his scheduled fight with Pimblett due to personal reasons. “The Baddy” will now lock horns with Italy’s Davide Martinez in a 155-pound clash at Cage Warriors 113.
Pimblett (14-3) is looking to bounce back after a loss to former Cage Warriors champion Soren Bak in his most recent bout at CW 96 in 2018. Prior to that, “The Baddy” submitted with a highlight-reel flying triangle choke Alexis Savvidis at CW 90.
Martinez will arrive at the most important fight in his career until riding a six-bout winning streak. “Ispanico” defeated his last three foes by unanimous decision.
Cage Warriors 113 will go down at the Indigo at the O2 Arena. The bill will also feature a flyweight championship bout between titleholder Samir Faiddine and Luke Shanks.
