Asael Adjoudj Betting Preview

Adjoudj has six straight fights after losing in his debut for his career in 2020. His most recent win was a unanimous decision over Georges Sasu back at Bellator 296 in May earlier this year. 

In his professional journey, he has secured victory six times. Among these triumphs, two were achieved via knockout, one via submission, and three through decision. Impressively, he boasts a first-round finish among his wins. However, the only setback in his career occurred in 2020, resulting in a decision loss.

“The Sultan” has primarily focused on Bellator for most of his fights. He has gone 4-1 under the promotion and has battled quality opponents. He also has two bits with the UAE Warriors, which were easy early finishes.

He has various regional rankings around the globe. Most notably, he is currently the 20th best professional MMA lightweight from the United Kingdom and Ireland. 

Ibrahim Al-Faqih Hassan Betting Preview

Hassan is currently on a two-fight win streak heading into this event. His recent win was a third round buggy choke submission against Mohammed Bassem in UAE Warriors in March of this year.

Of his four wins, they are all early finishes with three knockouts and one submission. All of his knockouts were first round finishes and his only loss has been by submission.

He is making his debut in Bellator, which is a huge step in his career if he can pull off the win. So far, his best fights have been a part of UAE Warriors, where he put up a 2-2 record.

Comparing his ranking to Adjoudj’s, he is currently the 37th best welterweight fighter in the United Kingdom and Ireland. A win here would only improve his resume to potentially land more bigger name fighters.
