Added to the Phoenix Fighting Championship 4 preliminary card is a heavyweight action-packed match-up pitting Amin Nacheb from Tunis vs Yousef Abu Shreekh from Jordan.
This fight has a peculiar taste for Yousef Abu Shreekh, who has previously suffered a first round submission defeat against Nacheb back in 2015 at Desert Force 17. With that being said, this heavyweight fight already has all the makings of being one of the most entertaining fights on the card, with Abu Shreekh obviously seeking to give his all in order to avenge his past loss.
Notable for his submission and Karate skills, former Desert Force heavyweight champion, Nacheb is looking for his 4th straight victory, this time against a familiar opponent whom he has already defeated 2 years ago. Being the powerful puncher that he is, it will be interesting to see what adjustments Abu Shreekh has made to his wrestling and ground game in order to score a different outcome in this rematch against his foe.
A victory for either man at a promotion like Phoenix Fighting Championship could do big things for his career and future in the world mixed martial arts. Being a new promotion that has already scored internationally, both these fighters have an opportunity to create a clean and new slate to become truly dominant heavyweight forces in the worldwide MMA scene and platform.
Phoenix Fighting Championship 4 will take place at the Dubai World Trade Center on the 22nd of December, headlined by the highly anticipated welterweight battle between Mounir “The Sniper” Lazzez vs Christophe Van Dijck.
