UAE Warriors champion Bruno Machado gets new opponent for title defense in Abu Dhabi

UFC Warriors Lightweight Champion Bruno Machado has a new opponent for his upcoming title defense in Abu Dhabi as Yoon Jae Jung replaces Martun Mezhlumyan on February 25, according to MMA Fighting. Mezhlumyan withdrew due to illness.

UAE Warriors 36 will take place at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. In the co-main event, 2019 PFL champion Emiliano Sordi will attempt to stop a four-fight winless drift by making his promotional debut against Asylzhan Bakhytzhanuly.

Machado (15-9) is set to return to the cages after going the distance with former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva at the Dubai Boxing Show this May. The 155-pound fighter is on a six-win MMA streak with five stoppages.

Jung (8-2-1) will make his debut with the promotion after capturing the Double G welterweight title in his native Seoul, South Korea in May 2022. Half of Jung’s victories come from submission, including three rear naked choke punches.
