Mixed Martial Arts is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and is only growing in popularity here in Abu Dhabi.

Not only has UFC signed a five-year deal to bring big fights to the city, but UAE Warriors is bringing a more homegrown event to the capital.

UAE Warriors is back with a massive night of bouts at Mubadala Arena on January 31.

A total of 11 fights will take place on the night, with fighters from across the region and around the world coming for the event.

The main bout will see judo world champion Alexandru Lungu take on Lebanese strongman Roman Wehbe.

For the co-main event its over to Elias Boudegzdame and UFC veteran Austin Arnett for a featherweight bout.

Other fights on the night include Emirati fighter Mohammad Yahya against Ramadan Moaman and Seb Eubank against Mohamed Elmokadem.

Away from the octagon fans can also catch a glimpse of UFC star Michael Chiesa who will be in Austin Arnett’s corner.

In September last year Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully defended his lightweight title in the UAE capital by defeating Dustin Poirier at the big UFC event on Yas Island.

The UFC should be returning later in the year, but until then, UAE Warriors will do us just fine.
From Dhs50. Jan 31, 6pm-11pm. Mubadala Arena, Khaleej Al Arabi Street, www.virginmegastore.me.
