Full fight card for UAE Warriors 8 released
UAE Warriors 8 is set for Abu Dhabi on Friday and the full fight card has been released. As previously announced Rolando Dy will defend his featherweight belt against late replacement Do Gyeom Lee in the main event.
The co-main event pits Dubai based Tunisian Mounir Lazzez (7-1) against Hong Kong’s Sasha Palatnikov (4-1) in a welterweight fight. The latter was also a late replacement for an injured fighter but comes into this bout on a four fight winning streak.
Also on the card is a lightweight bout involving Alan Omer (21-5), a German of Iraqi descent. He’s won three in a row since leaving the UFC and has been matched with Australia’s Aidan Aguilera (8-3).
Another bout in the 155lbs division sees Mohammad Yahya (5-2) of the UAE faces Glen Ranillo (4-4) from the Philippines. The former had a recent stint with Bellator.
In the welterweight division Lebanon’s Ahmad Labban (7-3) faces Frenchman Sofiane Benchohra (11-10-1). The former challenged unsuccessfully for the 170lbs title at UAE Warriors 6.
