French flyweight Samir Faiddine shocked fans and experts with a stunning TKO finish of Sam Creasey at “Cage Warriors 106: Night of Champions”.
It saw Faiddine (11-5) claim the vacant Cage Warriors flyweight world title.
“It’s amazing because I’m surprised,” Faiddine admitted. “I thought it would go five rounds then, in the third round, there was an opportunity to make the punch and boom!”
“I was prepared for five rounds, not for the knockout. So to see that, I am so surprised.”

Faiddine has competed at bantamweight and flyweight during his 16-fight MMA career and says he is not looking any further ahead than his next bout.
“For me, the next step is to have more fights at flyweight because I want to have more experience,” he explained. “I don’t think about the future, just about the next fight. That’s very important for me.”
