Youssef Zalal Prepares for His Fourth UFC Fight of 2020

The UFC’s “Fight Island” continues its glory at the Flash Forum at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Youssef Zalal (10-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) will be looking forward to the goal to become the first fighter to earn four UFC victories in 2020.

Zalal will face Ilia Topuria (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at the UFC as he is set to return this Sunday, 11 October at UFC Fight Night: Moraes vs. Sandhagen.

The 24-year-old Zalal has already put an inspiring performance as an outstanding featherweight at the UFC. He will be looking out for his fourth victory in 2020 when he takes on undefeated finisher Ilia Topuria.

The Factory X Muay Thai fighter was a staple under the LFA banner, amassing a 4-2 record where his losses came on the cards and his victories came inside the distance. In addition to training with a terrific team at Factory X, he is five-foot-10 with a dangerous 75-inch reach advantage.

Zalal has earned all three of his UFC victories by decision. Topuria has earned all of his career victories by stoppage. He’s finished seven of those wins in Round 1. The clash between two of the most promising rising stars in the division is expected to go down as a classic.

However, at ArabsMMA we are certain that this will not be the only time these two warriors will be clashing against each other. With Zalal at 24 and Topuria at 23, the future looks bright for two of the stars. And it is certain that they will meet against despite the results in the near future closer to the title picture.
