EFC Flyweight Champion, Luthando Biko, is set to take part in the upcoming UAE Warriors 32 card.
The South African champion recently had his first title defense at EFC 96 against Brazil’s Magno Alves and managed to get a fourth round TKO finish that cemented his status as the King of the African flyweights.
With UAE Warriors’ upcoming double-event weekend special, which they have become well-known for, the first stop will be the showcase of the African continent’s best and ‘Shorty’ is set to make his promotional debut at the event. Biko’s opponent will be Somalia’s Muhidin Abubakar, as the Somalian confirmed on his social media.
Next fight will be September 16, Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi against the current @efcworldwide champion and the number one ranked fighter in South Africa live on UFC fight pass.
