‘The True Viking’ who made a strong first impression in his Cage Warriors debut at Cage Warriors 83, where he claimed a dominant three-round win over seasoned veteran Scott Clist.

While the division’s champion Chris Fishgold is set for action against Norwegian Alexander Jacobsen in the night’s main event, both Stapleton and Bak will be keen to put on a show and claim the sort of impressive win that could position them as a possible contender to face the winner later this year.

Stapleton (19-5) has found his feet in the Cage Warriors cage following a decision loss to Anthony Dizy on his promotional debut in February. The Royal Marine-turned-MMA fighter rebounded from that defeat with a strong performance in his most recent outing as he claimed a unanimous decision victory over Belgium’s Donovan Desmae at Cage Warriors 85.

“It’s a fight that has us excited here in the Cage Warriors office, and I’m sure the fans will feel the same. It should produce a fascinating clash on a great night of fights in Liverpool.” says Cage Warriors president Graham Boylan.
