The Abu Dhabi-based professional mixed martial arts organisation, UAE Warriors, has launched a new version of the championship starting January 2021 called the UAE Warriors Arabia which will be open exclusively to Arab fighters.

Arab fighters from around the world will compete in all weight divisions throughout a series of events that will be held in parallel to the international series of the championship.

UAE Warriors, which launched in 2012, is scheduled to hold its 14th edition November 14-27.

There have been reportedly over 220 warriors, including 42 Arab fighters, who have participated in the championship since its inception.

“Following the impressive success of the UAE Warriors in becoming one of the key mixed martial arts events all over the world by attracting universal stars from around the world, it’s time now to organise the Arab version of the championship in order to nurture more Arab talent and help them attain top-notch rankings in this international sport,” said Fouad Darwish, chairman of the organising committee of the UAE Warriors and director general of Palms Sports, the sponsor of the organisation.

While the new championship will be held in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Darwish confirmed that plans are afoot to also expand it to other venues in Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Qaiwain and Fujairah.

The UAE Warriors Arabia will further cement the UAE’s position as a hub for mixed martial arts events, especially with Abu Dhabi already hosting several international UFC fights.
