Promising fans a dazzling display of striking prowess, this electrifying bout has been officially confirmed for the return event of the globe's premier MMA organization in Slovenia on April 20th. The event will take place at the prestigious Hala Tivoli, in collaboration with the renowned regional promotion, WFC.

Ismail Naurdiev, fresh from a triumphant return to the Middleweight division, makes his descent back to the 175-pound category in pursuit of the elusive world title.
