Ahead of PFL MENA 2, Gustavo Firmino, PFL MENA Vice President of Fighter Operations, shares insights into what makes this event a must-watch for Arab MMA fans and discusses the league's role in developing MMA in the Middle East.

"PFL MENA 2 is arguably the greatest fight card in Middle-East history," Firmino stated. "We've assembled the best lightweight and welterweight fighters the Middle East has to offer. They'll be competing in the signature PFL league format, where every fight counts and is decisive for each fighter to continue their journey to the title, adding another layer of excitement for fans."

Highlighting some of the most anticipated matchups, Firmino pointed out the clash between Amir Fazli and Badreddine Diani as a standout bout. Fazli's background as a Wushu Sanda World Champion brings an explosive striking style, while Diani's Sambo expertise promises a grappling-centric challenge.

"We’ve built a strong roster with the very best talent in the Middle East and North Africa region, combining established champions and top rising prospects."
