UAE Warriors 17 is set for Abu Dhabi on Friday night. The card will consist exclusively of Arabian fighters and is set to take place 24 hours before UAE Warriors 18 which is set for the same venue on Saturday.

The full fight card was released this week. It features a lightweight fight between Bellator veteran Mohammad Yahya (8-3) and Saleem Al-Bakri (1-0).

In the welterweight division Omar Hussein (7-2) has been matched with Yassin Najid (8-2). Meanwhile bantamweight Nawras Abzakh (7-2) and Ali Taleb (2-0) are set to collide.
