Ali Al Qaisi ready to defend UAE Warriors featherweight title at his 'second home'

The UAE Warriors will celebrate a special milestone this weekend when the promotion stages its 50th event, along with the first unified Arabia and Africa fight card, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre Marina.

The highlight of the two day event on Friday and Saturday is the featherweight title contest between holder Ali Al Qaisi and Samuel Bark of Sweden in the promotion’s international card.
