A double championship for two world champions

The institution also unveiled the Fight Card for this “historic” edition, which will see not one but two world champions crowned. A double tournament will take place in Dubai: an Under 52kg World Championship between Mona Ftouhi (France/Tunisia) and Alana Sousa (Brazil) as well as a Co-Main Event between Marie Loiseau (France) and Eleni Mytilinaki (Greece) for the HEXAGONE MMA Under 61kg World Champion title. The event will take place at the AB Fitness Hall in Dubai from 8pm local time.

Since the beginning of the health crisis, the United Arab Emirates has become a hotbed for mixed martial arts. Several athletes train there and numerous tournaments are organised, notably under the aegis of the UFC, with the local population increasingly attracted to the discipline.
