UAE Warriors 15 took place live at the Jiu-Jitsu Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates earlier today. The sixteen-fight card was co-promoted by Eagle Fighting Championship, an organization in which UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov holds ownership. The event was advertised to be a tribute to Nurmagomedov’s late father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov. UFC president Dana White was in attendance not only to watch the fights, but apparently to also have a meeting with “The Eagle”.

The card was headlined by a lightweight fight between UFC veteran Mickael Lebout and Bruno Azeredo. Azeredo was able to take away a convincing unanimous decision victory over the 34 fight veteran “Ragnar” Lebout. TUF 23 competitor and UFC veteran Eric Spicely was also featured on the card, facing Rinat Fakhretdinov at middleweight. The Russian Fakhretdinov easily handled “Zebrinha” Spicely, winning by TKO in under a minute. Dana White Contender Series veteran Jesse Arnett, however, was able to eke out a split decision victory at bantamweight over Elias Boudegzdame.
