Mick Stanton is the new middleweight champion after he edged a five-round war with Will Currie at CW 151 Unplugged.

Show One

In the main event of Show One, it was Matty Byfield who established himself as the #1 light heavyweight contender and made his claim for a shot at the vacant title in the near future with a win over former TUF contestant Prince McLean.

The Birmingham native took out his opponent with a slick submission in the second round to make a statement in our first of two main events at the BT Sport Studios.

Matt Bonner made his own case for a title shot in the co-main event when he rained elbows and punches on his opponent for a huge TKO win.

The real winner of Show One however was German debutant Shawn Da Silva as he captured the hearts of fight fans around the world with his charismatic performance and personality.

Ander Sanchez was also amongst the winners with his come-from-behind submission victory alongside Sam Kelly who delivered an incredible 11-second win to get our show off to a flyer in Stratford.

Show Two

In our second main event of the night, Stanton was crowned a champion in his 13th fight with the organisation after a brutal five-round fight against Currie which saw both fighters have their moments across the 25 minutes.

It was the 36-year-old who used his ground game to take the edge with the scorecards reading 48-47 in his favour to deliver an emotional moment for the veteran.

Alberth Dias made his long-awaited debut in the co-main event and took home a win over the ever-durable Steve Aimable to place himself amongst the very best at 145lbs.

Elsewhere, former CW lightweight champion Agy Sardari returned to the win column against Yan Blasco and Jhonata Silva left the BT Sport Studios’ crowd speechless with a vicious knee knockout from out of nowhere.

Finally, Naglis Kanišauskas secured a submission win after several attempts to tie up a triangle choke in the first fight of Show Two to put himself alongside Bonner as a top title contender at 185lbs.
