On July 2nd, UAE Warriors 30 will be held at the Etihad Arena on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
The card will be headlined by Ali AlQaisi (12-5) as he looks to defend his featherweight belt against Canadian veteran Jesse Arnett (19-8).
After going 0-2 in the UFC in 2020, AlQaisi has found success in UAE Warriors promotion as he captured the featherweight crown last year in route of a four fight win streak. In addition he is also the UAE Arabia and Titan FC featherweight champion, all culminating to a three belt featherweight champion.
Meanwhile, Arnett, 37, has made quite an impact since joining UAE warriors last January after he earned his shot at the 145 lbs belt with a unanimous decision victory over then undefeated Gadzhimurad Gasanguseynov.
The fight was at the bantamweight limit of 135 lbs, which means Arnett is moving up in weight for this opportunity.
Arnett has been a strong representative of Canadian MMA since debuting professionally in 2011, holding wins against former and current UFC fighters such as Roland Delorme, Johnny Bedford, and Darrick Minner.
In addition to the main event, Brazilian fighter Vinicius De Oliveira (17-2) defends his UAE Warriors bantamweight belt against undefeated Iraqi Ali Taleb (6-0)
De Oliveira was crowned bantamweight champ at UAE Warriors 18, when he defeated Xavier Alaoui and went on to have a successful defense against Sylvester Chipfumbu in a first submission victory.
Taleb on the other hand is also riding an impressive 4-0 run since joining the promotion to lay claim to being the number one contender.
