UAE Warriors 23: Arabia 5

A featherweight showdown will take place in the main event when Iraqi-born Hussein Salem will look to continue his win streak against Lebanese “The Widow Maker” Youssef Ghrairi. Both fighters will look to continue their win streaks and stay undefeated in 2021. Also featured on UAE Warriors 23: Arabia 5 will be a heavyweight pairing with Mohamed Juma, of South Sudan, against French-born Sofiane Boukichou in the co-main event. “King John” Juma is on an 8 fight win streak with all 8 victories coming by way of KO/TKO, and he will be looking to add another in his next bout. Boukichou’s last two losses were against notable fighters such as UFC heavyweight Tom Aspinall and Senegalese wrestling champion “Reug Reug” Oumar Kane, so he will be fighting hard in this fight to get back in the win column.

Other fights at UAE Warriors 23: Arabia 5 include a flyweight showdown of “The Honey Badger” Nawras Abzakh looking to break his losing streak against “The Executioner” Mohamed Gamal of Egypt. Also, Lebanese welterweight Yousef Wehbe will meet French-born Yassin Najid, and Jordanian fighter Nart Abida at 1-0 will fight debuting Moroccan Nabil Igli.
