Detroit, MI- A high stakes 185 lbs. bout has been updated for WXC 74: Allegiance. Muhammad Abdullah (10-4) will now face former UFC veteran Sabah Homasi (11-8) on November 9th, 2018. Abdullah was originally supposed to face Maki Pitolo, who had to drop out of the fight due to injury.
Sabah Homasi, originally from Dearborn returns to his home state to fight for the first time since UFC 218 in December of 2017. Homasi, now a resident of Florida enters this bout with Abdullah after fighting three bouts with the UFC. Having lost his last three bouts, Homasi needs a big a win if we wants back into the UFC. A win over Abdullah would be a step in the right direction. Normally fighting at 170 lbs, he will be moving up to 185 with taking this fight on short notice. Even though he is moving up in weight, Abdullah will have his hands full with ‘The Punisher’ who has finished 10 of his 11 pro wins with eight knockouts and two submissions. And for his career Homasi was only been to the score cards once in 19 pro fights dating back to his debut in 2009. So win or lose Homasi leaves it all in the cage and expect just that come November 9th.
‘The Hurricance’ Muhammad Abdullah returns to the WXC after fighting for the WXC 185 title in his last fight at WXC 71. Even though he didn’t win the title that night against Dequan Townsend, he proved he has some major power and excellent grappling skills. Abdullah did pick up a win after that in April of his year to get his 10th pro win. With another win, he could find himself right back in the cage with Townsend for the WXC title once again. The Ohio resident has won three of his 10 victories by knockout.
