The return of Abu Dahbi Warriors Fighting Championship
The last time Abu Dhabi Warrior FC held an event was back in 2016 in Brazil. The event saw two Allan Zuniga and Marcin Bandel feature amongst other bouts. The last event was not as notable as some of their previous cards which regularly featured top class fighters from across the world.
After some time out, the promotion returns once again with a high-level fight card which guarantees exciting fights.
In the main event of Abu Dhabi Warriors 5, Oli Thompson takes on Roman Wehbe. Thompson has fought in the UFC, Bellator and KSW, constantly facing high-level opposition making him a huge challenge for hometown fighter Roman Wehbe who fights out of Team Nogueira Dubai.
The co-main event sees undefeated Heavyweight and former Glory Kickboxer Chi Lewis-Parry return to the cage. Lewis-Parry returned to MMA in 2018 after 4 years of no action. Signing with BAMMA, it was expected that he would be a world champion within a number of fights, however, luck was not on his side as a no contest and draw hindered his pursuit of gold. Now with BAMMA out of action, he returns to the cage for his first fight in 2019 against Ibrahim El Sawi. El Sawi is a local fighter that has lost his last 3 fights. Despite losing his last 3 fights he has been in some exciting bouts only seeing the distance in MMA on one occasion.
Joining him from fighting in BAMMA is Daniel Barez, the promotion’s reigning flyweight champion prior to its pause in activity. Barez has won his last 3 bouts and is taking on a lesser experienced Torbiso who’s hailing from the Philippines.
Another Filipino on the card is UFC veteran Rolando Dy, who is keen on putting on exciting fights. Dy went 1-3 in the UFC prior to this bout, he is very much known for his striking ability. Dy is coming up a highly touted Izzeddine Al Derbani in what could be a potential fight of the night.
The rest of the card is filled with some top talent from around the globe.
