Cardinal/Causey to Rumble for a Title
Rumble in the Cage Lightweight champion Brad Cardinal will defend his title at RITC 42 against Trail, BC’s Brad Causey, Top MMA News has confirmed with RITC officials. The fight will pit two of Canada’s top Lightweights against each other in the semi-main event in Lethbridge on February 19th.
Brad Cardinal is Canada’s sixth-ranked Lightweight and had a great 2010 beating Musa Toliver and Allen Berube among others. Cardinal got the title when he beat Trevor Wright in 2009 and will be defending it for the first time.
Cardinal will defend the title against the 8-1 Brad Causey. Causey, from the Pride Gym, last beat Yoon Heo and has always hovered just outside the top ten as he never seemed to fight the top guys in Canada. This is definitely Causey’s big chance to step up and crack the top 10 and win a title while he is at it.
The fight joins the Jordan Mein vs Martin Grandmont bout on what is looking to be a solid card for Lethbridge on February 19.
