Jim Alers vs Joni Salovaara Added to Cage Warriors 53
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.18.2013

Now that Conor McGregor has vacated his two titles to join the UFC, MMA Junkie reports that Cage Warriors have set up a featherweight title fight for April 13. Jim Alers (9-1) and Joni Salovaara (12-5) will fight for the vacant belt at Cage Warriors 53. It takes place at the Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, Scotland. The main card streams live on MMAjunkie.com after preliminary fights on Facebook.

Finish fighter Salovaara is on a three-fight win streak. He also won 10 of 11 fights since 2009. This is his debut for the promotion, although he has defeated veterans Olivier Pastor and Moktar Benkaci. Alers is on a five-fight win streak and has won two in a row in the promotion. His recent wins include stoppages over Matteus Lahdesmaki and Marcio Cesar.

Alers said: "I believe this belt belongs to me. I've fought for Cage Warriors four times now, and I've come out with the win each time. Cage Warriors has been a great promotion by giving me this chance to become a world champion. I'm training hard every day with nothing but the thought of that belt around my waist."

The card also includes a middleweight bout between Mats Nilsson (9-2-1) and Chris Scott (6-1). Nilsson is on a five-fight win streak while Scott makes his debut but has five submissions in a row.
