UK lightweight Abdul Mohamed (15-6-3) has signed with the UFC and will debut at UFC 93 on January 17th in Dublin, Ireland, according to MMA Junkie.
Mohamed, a former Cage Rage British lightweight champion, declined a deal with the promotion early last year but has now signed on the dotted line to make his octagon debut at the UFC 93, which is headlined by Rich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson and Mark Coleman vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
No opponent has yet been announced for his UFC debut.
Unlike the early-2007 UFC offer which came on the heels of a six-fight winning streak, the UFC has signed Mohamed after he has won just two of his last five fights, including a Saturday victory over Ross Pearson. Prior to the recent skid Mohamed had won back-to-back bouts over Ross Pointon and Jason Ball.
