ABU DHABI, 12th June, 2020 (WAM) — A huge knockout dealt by Brazilian Juscelino Ferreira to Syria’s Tarek Suleiman put an end to the main draw in the 10-fight card of the UAE Warriors 11 that was held behind closed doors in Zayed Sports City and telecast live on 27 TV channels across the world, including Abu Dhabi Sports.
Viewed by more than one billion fans worldwide, the two champs met tonight in the catchweight 90kg category. Ahead of the encounter, Suleiman was undefeated in two UAE Warriors appearances.
