Andreas Kraniotakes (13-5) and recent Bellator competitor Mike Hayes (16-4-1) are featured in the headlining bout of this weekend's Cage Warriors Fight Night 4 event, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com
) will feature a live stream of the evening's main-card action.
Cage Warriors Fight Night 4 takes place Friday at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The stream kicks off at 1 p.m. ET (9 p.m. GST local time).
Kraniotakes and Hayes meet with Cage Warriors Fight Championship's vacant heavyweight title on the line.
Kraniotakes submitted Dmitry Poberezhets this past week for his fourth win in five fights. The well-rounded German, whose only loss during the stretch came to former UFC champion Tim Sylvia at ProElite 2, now owns 13 stoppages (eight knockouts and five submission) in 13 career wins.
Hayes, who's also competed with Strikeforce, looks for his fifth straight win and his ninth victory in his past 10 fights. His only loss during the streak came to Alexey Oleinik in a Bellator season-three heavyweight-tourney fight. Most recently, he topped Neil Grove via split decision at Bellator 52.
In the co-headliner, welterweights Assan Njie (11-2) and Steven Ray (9-2) square off. Njie, a Swedish fighter and Superior Challenge vet, has won four straight and 11 of his past 12. He takes on Ray, a fellow promotional newcomer. The Scottish fighter has won two straight and five of his past six.
In another featured bout, recent UFC fighter and M-1 vet Lucio Linhares (16-7) looks for his third win in four fights. The Brazilian takes on Kyle Baker (10-5), an American who's won nine of 11 with victories over notables such as James Warfield, Drew Fickett and Chad Reiner.
In addition to the main card, two preliminary bouts stream at 12:05 p.m. ET on Cage Warriors' Facebook page.
