Sylvester Chipfumbu vs. Imad Bouamri

Undefeated as an amateur ‘Gladiator’ has stacked up a 5 – 0 record. Chipfumbu made his professional debut back in 2016 in EFC. Since then the Zimbabwe fighter became a mainstay in the African promotion. After winning four consecutive fights he unsuccessfully challenged for the EFC flyweight title. He was stopped in the fourth round by defending champion, Nkazimulo Zulu. Later Chipfumbu bounced back at EFW Worldwide 74, where he submitted Tumisang Madiba. However, after suffering two losses he bounced back once more by beating Asiashu Tshitamba. Finally, he captured the EFC bantamweight title by dethroning Faeez Jacobs. In 2021 he made his UAE Warriors debut and now has a 1 – 2 balance in the promotion.

Bouamri is a product of the Spanish MMA circuit, where he won four consecutive fights. Now Bouamri fought for various local promotions and now he will be making his promotional debut.

Rest of the card

Eslam Reda will look to make an impressive UAE Warriors debut. The Egyptian fighter sports an 8 – 1 record. He started his career with a five-fight winning streak. It was put on a hold by Abdullah Al-Qahtani at BRAVE CF 21. Since then Reda won his next three consecutive fights.

He will face Chakir Haj Haddou, who has the exact same record of 8 wins and 1 defeat. Haddou went through the German MMA competition circuit until he taste his first defeat at UAE Warriors 26. The German fighter was defeated by Mo Elawil.

Sofiane Boukichou has fought for such promotions as Cage Warriors and ARES FC amongst others. Now he switched his focus to both UAE Warriors and PFL. He has a 3 – 1 record in the first promotion and suffered the sole defeat in the latter.

Mohamed Juma went through a similar road but in the African MMA circuit. Same as his opponent he now focuses on UAE Warriors and PFL, but suffered losses in both promotions.
