Both Michal and Mateusz Figlak will be in action at Cage Warriors‘ upcoming Double Trouble events.
The Polish brothers, who train out of Trojan Free Fighters in Gloucester, will fight on Saturday 11th December on CW 132, the second portion of the doubleheader of events.
Michal Figlak will square off with Higher Level MMA’s Stevie McIntosh, while Mateusz Figlak will take on the experienced Kent Kauppinen at welterweight.
On the addition of the brothers to the card, Cage Warriors president, Graham Boylan said: “It’s great to have the Figlak brothers fighting again, both of them are taking on a big challenge in their upcoming bouts and I look forward to seeing how they manage it.
“Michal will be taking on Stevie McIntosh who is a dangerous striker and has some really good grappling skills too.
“Mateusz’s opponent, Kent Kauppinen, is a veteran of the sport, and he is likely to be bigger than Mateusz too, having previously fought at both light heavyweight and middleweight before this bout at welterweight.
“Both fights will be great to watch and I know the fans will love both matchups.”
Michal Figlak currently stands at 6-0 as a professional, with four knockout wins to his name.
“Mad Dog” last competed at CW 129, where he beat Kieran Lister by decision in a fast-paced bout.
On his upcoming fight, Michal Figlak said: “It feels great to be a part of the show again.
“I’ll be looking to finish my opponent and cement myself as the number one contender.”

Kent Kauppinen has a 13-6 record and has taken on a who’s who of mixed martial artists, including Alessio Sakara and Melvin Manhoef.
The Team Kaobon fighter will drop to 170lbs for this bout, telling Cage Warriors: “I am looking forward to the event because it’s been a long time out again for me, which isn’t ideal but I’m excited that I get to put on a show again.”
Kauppinen comes into this bout on the back of a win against Jamie Richardson at CW 120 in March this year and will be looking to build on that winning performance having moved to Team Kaobon since.
