Speaking on the Scandinavian fighters appearing at The Trilogy, Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan said: “It’s great to see these fighters from the Scandinavian region coming through.

“Cage Warriors has formed a longstanding relationship with NENT, and this really allows us to put the spotlight on the Scandinavian talent we have.

“At Cage Warriors, we are committed to growing the sport of MMA in Scandinavia, and what better way to do that than putting these guys on a huge platform to perform on.”

All four Scandinavian fighters will have their fights broadcast with NENT on their Viaplay streaming service.

Aleksi Mantykivi (12-6) will take on Madars Fleminas (8-3), in his first fight since 2019. Mantykivi has nine wins inside the distance to his name and has fought a who’s who of Cage Warriors stars, including double champ Mason Jones and two-time lightweight title challenger Jack Grant.

Jesse Urholin (6-0) will make his Cage Warriors debut on CW 124 and will square off with Cage Warriors welterweight veteran Aaron Khalid (10-6-1). Urholin has finished five of his six wins, with three TKO’s and two submissions.
