Inverness mixed-martial arts champion Ross Houston knows the date of his first world title defence.

Houston defeated Stefano Paterno by decision last year to win the Cage Warriors welterweight world championship in a back-and-forth contest.

Now he is set to put that belt on the line against Danish fighter Nicolas Dalby on June 29 in London.

Dalby saw off Alex Lohore in his home country to win an interim championship earlier this month.

So Cage Warriors have announced that the two champions will face off to crown the undisputed king of the division in three month's time.
