Uloomi Karim will become the first fighter from Pakistan to headline a co-main event of an International Mixed Martial Arts organisation. The featherweight fighter who fights out of Team Fight Fortress in Pakistan is trained at Fight Fortress MMA under the coaches Ali Sultan and Ehtisham Karim. Uloomi will face a tough challenge against Jeremy Pacatiw from Team Lakay, Philippines. Pacatiw has the most number of fights in Brave Combat Federation appearing in 7 of the 17 editions of the promotion. However Uloomi has the hometown advantage as he will be fighting in front of his friends, fans and family.
Facing one of the toughest fighters in the division, Uloomi is set to recreate the magic that made him a major icon when it comes to MMA in Pakistan. Uloomi made his mark in Pakistan when he defeated Yadwinder Singh from India early in his career. The fight against Pacatiw also gives the hometown hero to even the odds against Team Lakay. In the first confrontation between the two teams, Haider Farman from Team Fight Fortress was defeated by Jomar Pa-ac from Team Lakay. The bout is also a chance for Uloomi to redeem the initial loss. The striker from Team Fight Fortress has a professional record of 7-4-0 almost equal to that of his opponent who has a record of 7-3-0 in his fight career.
Ahead of the bout the featherweight from Pakistan sent a strong message after in final training session ahead of the preparations for the weigh-ins. “First of all I need to say, thank you and welcome to Pakistan. For making this happen. And secondly, fireworks baby, fireworks!”
