Cage Warriors flyweight champion Sam Creasey will defend his title against Shajidul Haque at Cage Warriors 147 on Sunday 20th November at the BT Sport Studios in London.
The pair first met at Unplugged 1 in 2016 where Haque handed Creasey his first professional loss.
Sam “Urai” Creasey (16-4) is coming off an impressive title defense against Stipe Brcic at Cage Warriors 142 in Wales. Creasey submitted the Croatian in the first round with a slick high-arm guillotine choke. The champion defeated Luke Shanks via submission at Cage Warriors 129 last October to win the title.
Shajidul “Superman” Haque (14-5) defeated former Cage Warriors flyweight champion Samir Faiddine via a split decision at Ares FC 8 last month in Paris, France. Haque is riding a four-fight winning streak after losing to Jake Hadley at Cage Warriors 114 in 2020. Haque went on to have a successful stint under the Almighty Fighting Championship banner where he captured and defended the flyweight title.
The Unplugged shows are invite-only events with the fighters competing in front of a live studio audience. Jack Cartwright won the bantamweight title at the last Unplugged show in 2019 after he won an exciting one-night tournament.
