Wales’ Ben Ellis (3-1-0) makes his long-awaited return to the Cage Warriors arena on the 18th of March, where he’ll face Englands finest Ukrainian import since Andriy Shevchenko joined Chelsea in 2006; Nik Bagley (3-0-0).
We last saw Ellis on the wrong end of a brutal KO at the hands of Manny Akpan in March last year.
A loss that sparked a chain of unfortunate events for the Welshman, including a hand injury that got infected rendering him unable to compete. Now, the MAT Academy standout insists he is back to full health and ready to right the wrongs of his last outing.
In his way stands Bagley, who was impressive on his Cage Warriors debut when he claimed a second-round submission win over Ellis’ countryman, Scott Pedersen.
This clash of featherweight prospects promises to deliver a high octane stanza, where neither man will take a backward step.
