This is Abida’s second professional fight in his MMA career, and his second with the UAE-based organization.

Abida will fight his Moroccan opponent at the 70kg weight class on October 28. Jordanian MMA fighter Lina Fayyad is also set to fight France’s Lucie Bertaud at the same event.  

Abida said he is sticking to one match contracts to keep his options open.

“This is my second fight with the organization, and I think it is a great challenge for me as I will make a specific fight plan for this fight, but I will still stick to my style of training in the preparation process,” he told Jordan News.

“I think I have a long way to go in the sport, and I still want to keep my options open even though I am probably going to continue with the organization in the upcoming events, but you never know.” 

Abida, one of the most talented MMA prospects in Jordan, has won the Arabian Fight League tittle earlier this year and has showed a dominating style in his previous fight with the UAE league against his opponent Taimour Narmouq.
