Steve Aimable set to fight Alberth Dias at Cage Warriors 151 in March

Featherweight duo Steve Aimable and Alberth Dias are set to clash at Cage Warriors 151 in just over three weeks time.

The card, also known as ‘Cage Warriors Unplugged‘, is scheduled for March 24 with a middleweight bout between Matt Bonner and Guilherme Cadena currently headlining the event.

Aimable will be entering the octagon for the first time since last November, coming off the back of a loss to Harry Harwick at Cage Warriors 145 via unanimous decision.

Prior to this defeat, ‘Diddy Kong‘ had been on a four-fight winning streak spanning over a period of two years, with half of these coming through first round finishes of Tom Mearns and Walter Cogliandro respectively.

Cage Warriors 151 will be Aimable’s 13th appearance within the promotion, after debutising in 2018. The 35-year-old has a professional record of 18-9 (9 KOs), having only been finished once in his career.

His upcoming opponent, Dias (5-3), will be making his promotion debut following a victory against Richie Smullen at Bellator 240. It will be the Brazilian’s first professional MMA fight since the COVID-19 pandemic, with his last octagon appearance coming on February 22, 2020.

Dias was scheduled to take on Frenchman and fan favourite Morgan Charriere last October, however the bout was called off after the 31-year-old weighed in 4.5lbs overweight.

He comes into the contest with a finish rate of 40%, although his last early stoppage came back in 2014 with a third round knockout of Waldson Oliveira.

Cage Warriors 151 is scheduled to be the promotion’s second appearance at the BT Sport Studios, London, with the card’s remaining bouts still yet to be announced.
