The Phoenix 6 Abu Dhabi fight card is already shaping up pretty well. So far, the card is slowly being built featuring several high profile fighters and some Phoenix crowd favorites.
On his Facebook page, Phoenix president Chahe Yerevanian recently shared a post officially announcing a featherweight match-up between Ashleigh Grimshaw and Walid Seghir at Phoenix 6 in Abu Dhabi.
Grimshaw (19-10-1) already had a successful Phoenix debut. At Phoenix 3, he made his first Phoenix appearance by upsetting Izzedine Al Derbani and handing him his first professional defeat inside under Mixed Martial Arts rules. “The Thunderball Kid” has been in impressive form recently, bouncing off a 3 fight winning streak. However, he will no-doubt have his hands full with his upcoming opponent.
The Al Batal Season 2 reality TV show winner, Walid Seghir (5-2-0), is making his debut at Phoenix Fighting Championship. Having grabbed all 5 of his professional victories by submission, it’s pretty clear the ground game is Seghir’s backyard. Seghir wants to make a successful Phoenix debut of his own and will most likely want to drag his opponent down to the mat and make that happen by adding an extra submission victory to his professional MMA record.
Phoenix 6 will take place on the 5th of April in Abu Dhabi. In addition to Grimshaw vs. Seghir, a lot of powerful match-ups are being put together and added to an always promising fight card.
Stay tuned for more fight announcements and the full-fight card to be officially released soon.
