Alexander O’Sullivan vs. Solomon Simon Set for Lightweight Title at Cage Legacy 13

Yesterday the unfortunate news broke that Emil Piatek was ruled out of the main event slot on the upcoming Cage Legacy 13 card. The C-MAC MMA fighter was set to defend his lightweight title against Team Ryano’s Solomon Simon. 

Speaking with SevereMMA, Cage Legacy Owner/Promoter Declan Kenna confirmed that Alexander O’Sullivan will step in for his teammate and fight Simon for the vacant lightweight title. 

O’Sullivan recently fought in the IMMAF-WMMAA: Amateur World Championships in Bahrain last November. Simon is coming off a decision win over Jacoub Kassouri in a fight that was contested in October 2019. Both fighters will be making their third appearance for the Cage Legacy promotion. This will be a phenomenal fight and it is not to be missed.

The event is set to take place on March 14th at O’Raghaillaighs GAA Grounds in Drogheda. You can check out the rest of the fight card by clicking here
