So you want to be an Ultimate Fighter? The answer doesn’t actually need to be yes, but if you’re a Mixed Martial Arts fan, use the sport as a mechanism for fitness or actually compete in MMA, then there is a real treat on Wednesday, April 10, at 19:00.

One of the top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contenders will be holding a seminar at Dubai’s TK MMA & Fitness situated on the ninth floor of Shatha Tower, Media City.

Britain’s Leon Edwards, who is riding a seven-fight win streak following a deeply impressive victory over Gunnar Nelson last month, will host the MMA workshop with the opportunity to train and pick the brain of a future UFC champ.

The seminar, costing just Dh100, is open to all levels and the 27-year-old can’t wait to meet plus train with fighters and fans alike on Wednesday.

“Dubai is a beautiful place, it’s my first time here to come and experience it with my family. The seminar is booked for Wednesday, 7pm at TK MMA and I’m looking forward to going there to show my skillset,” the Birmingham native said.

“Hopefully it’s a success and we can build a relationship to keep coming out here every year.”

He added: “I’m not really sure what the level for MMA is like here so I’ll probably just play it by ear, then once I get there I’ll be able to see who has done it before and who hasn’t.

“Jiu-jitsu is huge over here so that’ll be a good field to start in and then build from there. I’m really excited to see what the level is like here, though.”

While people naturally have different reasons for getting involved in MMA, from losing weight to simply acquiring new skills, the sport is widely considered to be one of the best physical forms of fitness.

As it continues to grow and evolve in the UAE, the opportunity to learn first-hand from fighters competing in the highest echelon like Edwards is one not to be missed.
