Almighty FC: Raphael Uchegbu vs Alexander Sasha Pirev
Uchegbu (5-0-0) is no stranger to Almighty fans. He made a name for himself in the promotion in September 2021 when he put on a show in his home city of Liverpool and beat Dave Jones in Round 1 via ground and pound strikes. He then again fought in Liverpool at Almighty FC 21, where he won a Unanimous decision against George Courtney. Raphael proved that he could finish a fight in any way, impressively winning his first three pro fights via submission. He also trains at Team Kaobon and works with some of the world’s best, including UFC Heavyweight Tom Aspinall.
