Aaron Aby 11-4-1 is a Welsh professional Mixed Martial Artist currently competing in the Flyweight Division. A professional competitor since 2013. He has competed for Olympian Fighting Championship, FCC, ICE FC, UKFC, Absolute Championship Berkut, Probellum MMA and CageWarriors.
I’d like to start this off by thanking you for taking the time to speak to me today Aaron, and also to congratulate you on your return to the iconic York Hall. It’s been five months since the fans in Bethnal Green last had the pleasure of witnessing you in action when you took on Sam Creasey back at CW123. How does it feel to once again be taking the walk to the CW cage?
“It feels good to be fighting Aaron. I want to compete at the highest level. I have not stopped training, I love it. I feel free to compete. I’m mostly looking forward to the fans being back.”
December 11th, you’ll take on former Flyweight champion Samir Faiddine. About that will have fights fans on the edge of their seats I’m sure. What do you make of your opponent for Double Trouble?
“Faddine is a good opponent. Explosive athlete, a former champion with a good skill set. But that’s what I’m here for.”
Taking on a not too long ago king of the Flyweight division could potentially skyrocket you within reach of a title opportunity yourself. Depending on how the night goes, this could potentially be a redemption fight against Sam Creasey. Would this be something you’d like in the not so distant future?
“Hell yes! A win over Faddine puts me right back in the mix. I’m interested in getting my name back in title contention. Wales needs a flyweight champion.”
Over the past eight years of your professional career, fans have had so many highlight-reel moments from you. Spanning over eight organisations. What one of your wars in the cage stand out for you the most?
“The fight that stands out for me the most was a draw on UKFC with Daryl Grant. Because of the journey, I went through to get there. Everyone played a part in getting me back to competing after cancer. The fight optimised my life: My story isn’t perfect, but I never quit and will always give people hope.”
Other than your inclusion on the night, are there any matchups in particular that you’re looking forward to witnessing come CW132?
“Ian Dean always makes good fights. I’m looking forward to watching the Welsh guys and other flyweights. However, I’ve heard UKFC has a great card on the 27th which I’m interested in.”
Aaron is spot on there, the 27th also brings a promised night of pure unadulterated MMA madness to the Imperial Banqueting Suite North in Preston. With some of the best amateur’s and gifted professionals, the Preston based organisation has outdone themselves for the fans, as they do every fight card. Make sure to grab a ticket if you can as limited tickets are available.
Last but not least do you have a message for the fans that will be in attendance and anybody you’d like to shout out to?
I would like to thank my team for helping me prepare. My family and friends for the support! My sponsors! I want to shout out to my friends David and Dan who are fighting a much bigger battle than an MMA fight like warriors! As for the fans! I’m going to bring my all and be ready for a good one.
The inclusion of Aby and many more extraordinary fighters are being added to the already stacked shotgun witch I Double Trouble, has to be one of the most highly anticipated cards CW have arranged. Championship bouts, returning warriors and announcements ain’t done yet. If you can’t grab a ticket make sure to watch live on UFC fight pass.
