James Webb and Nathias Frederick will go head-to-head for a second time when they clash for the middleweight title at Cage Warriors London on Nov. 22.
Cage Warriors announced the rematch via press release on Tuesday.
Webb (6-1-1) saw a five-fight win streak snapped when he came up against Frederick at Cage Warriors 106: Night of Champions at the Hammersmith Apollo in June. The bout was set to be his first title defense having won the belt from Thomas Robertsen with a third-round arm triangle choke at Cage Warriors 102.
Frederick (7-2-1), like Webb, came away from the June bout thinking he had done enough to have his hand raised. Following the bout, it was revealed that a point deduction for a spike on Webb cost him the bout. Without the point deduction, Frederick would have claimed the win via majority decision based on two of the judges’ scorecards.
On a recent episode of Eurobash, Webb disclosed that he would be sidelined for up to six weeks in the aftermath of the bout due to an injured shoulder, which he believes he suffered when he was spiked by Frederick.
