Almighty Fighting Championship kicks off their 2022 season with their first event of the year, which takes place in the Rainton Arena, Houghton Le Springs, on January 22nd.
Shajidul Haque found himself back in the win column in 2021 after suffering a tough loss at the hands of Jake Hadley the previous year. Haque obtained a unanimous decision victory over Aaron Robinson at Almighty FC 20 in Gateshead, England, and now looks to capture the Almighty FC flyweight championship in the main event when faced up against Igor Wojtas.
Haque wasn’t the only man to have a successful year inside the cage. His opponent Igor Wojtas packed up his life in his native home of Poland and made the transition to Scotland to train under Brain Gallagher at The Scottish Hit Squad. The move proved to be worthwhile, as Wojtas picked up his first victory under his new team at Evolution of Combat 8 over Iain Postlethwaite. Wojtas now has the opportunity to show those who aren’t familiar with the twenty-six-year-old what he’s all about.
The co-main event features a bout between heavy-hitting Jack Comby, who makes the drop-down to middleweight to face Lithuanian born Mantas Kondratavicius. Kondatavicius makes his professional debut. The opening pro-bout includes the highly anticipated pro-debut of Liam McCracken, who will meet Matthieu Moya.
