On Saturday OKTAGON MMA will return to England with a stacked card at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham.

In the main event we will see a flyweight title bout between Welsh BJJ black belt Aaron Aby and Cage Warriors veteran Sam Creasey.

Perhaps even more hyped than the flyweight title fight is the lightweight bout between Sahil Siraj and Akonne Wanliss. After the hype surrounding the bout got bigger and bigger it was promoted to serve as the co-main event of the evening.

In the prelims we will see a women’s flyweight bout where Allstar Training Center prospect Aitana Alvarez making her promotional debut against Megan Morris.
