Cage Warriors flyweight champion Sam Creasey will put his title on the line when Cage Warriors returns to Wales on Saturday August 13.

Creasey was set to face Dylan Hazan at Cage Warriors 141 in London, but after the Italian missed weight for the matchup in London, the bout was scrapped, with Creasey instead moving on and being rebooked for Cage Warriors 142 in Ebbw Vale, Wales, where he’ll face Stipe Brcic instead.

Croatia’s Brcic comes into his title challenge in fine form after picking up five wins under the banner of German promotion EMC, where he captured titles at both flyweight and bantamweight.

“It’s an honour to fight for the best promotion in Europe,” said Brcic.

“As always, the fans can expect a great show from me.

“Sam is a good fighter and a real champ. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to win the belt. Let the best man win!”

Creasey captured the title last October with a submission of Luke Shanks. He was subsequently defeated by Shanks in the rematch, but held on to his title after the former champion failed to make championship weight on the scale.

Now the Cage Warriors veteran, who will appear in his 15th fight for the promotion on August 13, is determined to cement his status as the top 125-pounder in Europe with victory in Wales.

“I’m looking forward to sharing the cage with Germany’s number one and putting on a hell of a fight for those who missed me in London,” he said.

Also set to appear on the card are Welsh fan-favourites Aaron Aby and Josh Reed, with more still to be confirmed by the promotion in the coming days.
