Cage Warriors have added a big heavyweight fight to their Cage Warriors 47 in Dublin on June 2nd. The fight will be between former Bellator fighters DJ Linderman (11-3) and Mike ‘300’ Hayes (18-4-1), for the Cage Warriors heavyweight title and is a chance for Hayes to get revenge after the pair fought in 2009, with Linderman winning a unanimous decision.
Mike Hayes won the Cage Warriors heavyweight title in Dubai in March, submitting Andreas Kraniotakes in third round. He is currently on a five fight winning streak, including a close decision win over Neil Grove.
Linderman called the champion out after he defeated Bobby Brents in Amman last month and some animosity has begun to grow between the pair. Mike Hayes seems pretty excited to get his hands on Linderman, saying “I can’t stand DJ Linderman. He’s a piece of trash. I’m going to smash him.”
This fight tops off a pretty exciting CWFC 47 card, with a female 125lb tournament semi final bout also going down on the card, featuring top ten ranked fighters Rosi Sexton and Aisling Daly also featuring.
