Abdul Razak Alhassan faces Sabah Homasi at UFC 218 in Detroit

A pair of welterweight prospects will throw down at UFC 218 looking to rebound.

The UFC announced today that Abdul Razak Alhassan faces Sabah Homasi at the event, which takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Alhassan (7-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) vs. Homasi (11-6 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is just the third fight to date officially booked for UFC 218.

Alhassan came out hot in his UFC debut last November when he scored a 53-second knockout win. But he was brought back to Earth in May at UFC Fight Night 109, dropping a split decision to Omari Akhmedov for his first loss.

Homasi, meanwhile, hasn’t fought since his UFC debut in August 2016 at UFC 202, when he fell to Tim Means via second-round TKO.

With the addition, the UFC 218 lineup now includes:

  • Francis Ngannou vs. Alistair Overeem
  • Cortney Casey vs. Felice Herrig
  • Abdul Razak Alhassan vs. Sabah Homasi
