James Pennington last fought at Cage Warriors 53 in April, where he scored a third round submission victory over James Doolan. Prior to that he dropped a first round submission loss against Davey Grant at SNA 11 in July 2012. That loss snapped a six fight winning streak he has been on, defeating notable fighters such as Sam Hewitt and Carl Hunt. Pennington will undoubtedly look to remain on the winning track with a good performance against Remedios.
