Hadley, who previously competed in Bellator and is a former ECF champion undefeated in five contests, signed with Cage Warriors earlier this year. He will look to work his way into the rankings with an impressive showing.
“I am pumped to return to competition and climb the world flyweight rankings,” Hadley said in a press release. Thank you to Cage Warriors for returning to action in my home country, and thank you to Dave Fish and my team at Paradigm Sports; I can’t wait to continue this journey and achieve my goal of being Cage Warriors champion and UFC champion after that.”
Haque (10-4-0), 29, has split his last four contests, but probably realizes defeating Hadley is an excellent chance to jumpstart his career.
Cage Warriors 114 is set for Sept. 24 at the BEC Arena in Manchester, England. It will be live-streamed on UFC Fight Pass. Current bouts include:
AARON KHALID (9-5-1) VS. MICK STANTON (6-4-0)
