The Belfast card, which marks the promotion’s first event in Ireland since November 2019, is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 25 in the SSE Arena.
Dubliner Shelley enters the contest fresh off the back of a dominant promotional debut at Cage Warriors 135 earlier this month. The Team KF fighter thoroughly overwhelmed Steven Hooper en route to a dominant 2nd-round TKO.

Power hails from Wakefield, West Yorkshire but trains out of Atherton Submission Wrestling in Manchester. While the Englishman boasts an unblemished MMA record through 6 fights, none of Power’s prior opponents have registered a win in MMA, combined for an 0-4 record in total. Taking on his most difficult test to date in Shelley, Power will look to extend his 6-fight win streak in his Cage Warriors debut.
