UAE Warriors 14 is set to take place November 27, 2020. One of the key matchups on the night will be the UAE Warriors Flyweight Championship. Manon Fiorot gets her shot at the gold as she battles Argentina’s Gabriela Campo. Fiorot is currently 2-0 in the organization and one of the hottest flyweight prospects outside the UFC. The event is will occur in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Currently there are nine bouts, two for championships.
Seeking More Gold
Already the EFC Worldwide flyweight champion, Fiorot seeks her second organizational title. Fiorot was a participant on the second second of The Fighter, which is EFC’s version of UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter. She blew through the competition and won the flyweight title. “The experience made me realize the really high level of my gym and the quality of my training regimen. This experience gave me tremendous confidence in myself and my ability by training with females of such a high level,” Fiorot told MyMMANews. Above all, France’s Fiorot is on the cusp of earning two major organizational world title, should she get through a very tough opponent. Should Campo win though, she would earn her second organizational flyweight title.
The Path to the UAE Warriors Title
This will arguably be Fiorot’s toughest task to date when she takes on Gabriela Campo. Campo is currently (6-1) with five of her wins coming by finish. This will be her first fight under the UAE Warriors banner. Most of her fights have been for Ronin Fights, where she is currently the Ronin Fights Flyweight Champion. Three of Fiorot’s four professional victories have come by KO, leading to this having Fight of the Night potential with a finish almost eminent. Fiorot has told MyMMANews in the past her ultimate goal is to reach the UFC, and winning multi world championships is a great way to earn an opportunity to reach that dream.
Manon Fiorot is truly one of the best talents outside of the UFC and it would not be a surprise if she is at least given an opportunity to enter the UFC Contender Series show sometime during 2021. In conclusion, this is a name to jump on board with now.
