Cage Warriors 55 takes place June 1 at The Helix in Dublin. The main card streams live and free on MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following Facebook prelims.
As previously announced, the event features two title fights: welterweight champ Cathal Pendred (12-2-1) vs. UFC veteran Che Mills (15-5), as well as Neil Seery (12-9) vs. Mikael Silander (8-1) for the inaugural flyweight title.
Fields fights for the first time since losing his title to Jesse Taylor in December. The Irishman was on an eight-fight win streak, which included Cage Warriors wins over Jack Mason and Pavel Kusch, before the defeat. He looks to get back on track against Paraisy, a Bellator vet who also had a short appearance on “The Ultimate Fighter 11.” He looks to end a two-fight skid that included a recent Bellator 89 loss to Brett Cooper.
Fadipe, who fights in his home country, made his promotional debut at Cage Warriors 51 and knocked out Charlie Watts. He’s 0-1-1 in outside promotions since then and now meets Ling, a longtime Cage Warriors fighter who halted a 1-4 skid with recent back-to-back wins over Stuart Tyrie and Lukasz Przybylski.
Three bouts also were added to the night’s prelims: welterweights Philip Mulpeter (5-3) vs. Avi Jack (6-2), featherweights Liam James (6-5) vs. Stephen Coll (5-3), and welterweights Piotr (4-3) Ptasinski vs. John Redmond (4-6).
