'Cage Warriors 106: Night of Champions' receives sixth title fight

Cage Warriors’ upcoming “Night of Champions” event now has six title fights set for the evening’s main card.

Promotion officials today announced that top flyweight contenders Sam Creasey (11-2) and Samir Faiddine (10-5) will face off for the promotion’s vacant 125-pound title at Cage Warriors 106, which takes place June 29 at Eventim Apollo in London. The night’s main card, including all six title fights streams live on UFC Fight Pass.

Creasey and Faiddine were initially linked together for a 2017 contest, though the bout never came to fruition. Since then, Creasey challenged for the Cage Warriors flyweight title but came up short in a barnburner with Nathan Greyson. “The Hobbit” has since rebounded with a pair of victories in the promotion.

Meanwhile, Frenchman Faiddine makes his Cage Warriors debut, looking to build off the strength of an April decision win under the Cage Survivor banner.
