In preparation for the fight, Samsonidse has been training at Ireland’s most famous MMA gym, SBG.

Samsonidse commented:"Man I'm absolutely fine now that it is fight week, I'm looking forward to the fight and I'm super excited.

"I had a great camp, it was two weeks out in SBG Ireland preparing as well as the rest of the time in Berlin with my team, I feel ready to go and I'm super excited to fight for a title in a main event.

"I had such a warm welcome when I got there, really great training partners and I was also there with Rafael Xavier and Ebrahim Hosseinpour who are fighting on this card as well.

"It was great to get the insight from John Kavanagh as well when I was out there."

Also on the card, former opponent of Conor McGregor, Ivan Buchinger. Buchinger was on the receiving end of a viral KO from McGregor, when the Irishman claimed his second Cage Warriors belt, in a fight which ultimately earned him his call up to the UFC.
