Cage Warriors is back and with a bang.
Three events displaying the top rising talent the European MMA scene has to offer over three nights, Cage Warriors is the first MMA promotion to put on a government-approved in the UK amid the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Sponsored by sports management agency Envisage MMA, Cage Warriors kick off The Trilogy run with CW 114 tonight behind closed doors in Manchester’s BEC Arena.
We’ll take a look at CW 114 and share the information you need to watch live later this evening. Also, stay tuned to catch the previews and viewing information for the next two upcoming events of The Trilogy, CW 115 and CW 116.
Cage Warriors 114 Main Event – Samir Faiddine vs. Luke Shanks
CW114 weigh-ins complete. ✅
Every fighter made weight successfully for the opening night of #THETRILOGY!
— Cage Warriors (@CageWarriors) September 23, 2020
Like every other fighter on the CW 114 card, Cage Warriors flyweight champion Samir Faiddine and title challenger Luke Shanks made weight on Wednesday so they can lock horns the following night.
This fight will see Faiddine defend his Cage Warriors 125-pound title for the first time after shocking the world with his TKO victory against Sam Creasey for the vacant flyweight title in June last year.
The Frenchman will be facing an in-form Shanks on the night, who is riding a three-fight winning streak after knocking out Pietro Menga last September at Cage Warriors 107.
Faiddine only has one fight under the Cage Warriors banner to his credit and that saw him earn flyweight gold in the promotion. Can he make it two wins from two?
Cage Warriors 114 Undercard fight to watch: Jake Hadley vs. Shaj Haque
There are plenty of fun fights on the Cage Warriors 114 undercard, but on a night of flyweight featurettes it’s the bout between Jake Hadley and Shaj Haque which captures the attention.
Hailing from the Midlands, Hadley is considered one of the UK’s finest fighting prospects. Hadley boasts an unblemished 5-0 record and the 24-year-old has finished four of those five victories.
In Haque, Hadley is perhaps facing his toughest test to date.
An eight-year veteran of the sport, Haque has accrued 10 wins against four losses. That record includes a big victory over Bellator and Sengoku veteran Ronnie Mann.
Haque has never been finished in his 14 outings and has the experience to trouble any rising prospect. However, given Hadley’s penchant for both submission and knockout finishes in his short career so far, this fight will make for intriguing viewing.
