The lineup has taken shape for this month's Cage Warriors 48 event.
As previously announced, the event takes place July 21 at HMV Forum in London.
A total of five main-card bouts will stream live on MMAjunkie.com, including a headliner between middleweight-tournament semifinalists John Phillips (15-5) vs. Faycal Hucin (7-3), the winner of which could advance to the finals if Victor Cheng isn't cleared for his Aug. 30 bout with Pavel Kusch.
The eight-man tournament kicked off earlier this year, and the winner earns Cage Warriors' middleweight title.
Also slated for Cage Warriors 48 card are welterweights Aaron Wilkinson (9-5) vs. Leigh Cohoon (8-5), and welterweights Jack Mason (20-10) vs. Danny Roberts (6-1).
New additions include middleweights Brett Sizeland (6-1) vs. Denniston Sutherland (16-8) and flyweights Brian Hyslop (5-1) vs. Kris Edwards (7-3).
Sizeland has won three straight Cage Warriors fights following stoppages of Craig White, Brett Bassett and Victor Peixoto. He now meets Sutherland, who opened his career with a 14-4 mark before a recent 2-4 skid and back-to-back knockout losses to Andrew Punshon and Jake Bostwick in late 2011.
Edwards, meanwhile, made his promotional debut with a unanimous-decision victory over Janne Elonen-Kulmala at Cage Warriors Fight Night 5. He now looks for his sixth win in seven fights when he drops a weight class to fight Hyslop, a promotional newcomer who recently rebounded from his first career loss with a decision victory over Declan Williams (6-4 at the time) in Scotland.
Cage Warriors 48's prelims, which stream on Facebook, including heavyweights Dayman Lake (2-2) vs. Jay Mortimore (6-3), welterweights Piotr Ptasinski (3-1) vs. Jacek Toczydlowski (4-2), and middleweights Nick Nembhard (1-2) vs. Charlie Watts (2-0).
