Today is fight day for Shajidul Haque. The Almighty FC Flyweight champion makes the walk at Ares FC 8 for his debut appearance in the promotion. Taking place in Paris on the eve of the UFC’s maiden voyage to the French capital. Haque will be looking to capitalise on the spotlight and steal the shine this weekend.
His opponent on the night will be France’s Samir Faiddine. Samir’s current record sits at 14-8. Of his 14 wins, he has finished seven of them, four via KO/TKO and three via submission.
A Flyweight champion in the UK, he has already proved how good he is. Next, he wants to prove how high his ceiling is. 13-5 as a professional he has a whole host of experience under his belt.
Riding a three-fight winning streak currently, he is in top form. Of his five losses, three have come to current UFC talent, all of who have impressed in their own right.
Tagir Ulanbekov and Zhalgas Zhumagulov managed to outpoint the Brit over three rounds. His only loss by finish is to the former Cage Warriors champion Jake Hadley.
Of his 15 professional wins, he has managed to secure finishes in four. All of his finishes have come by way of KO/TKO. Looking to make his mark at Ares 8 expect Shajidul to show all his tools that have seen him earn nine decision victories.
