This time, he was picked up by a worthy opponent - Brian Kelleher, who has more than three dozen fights behind him.


The guys will meet as part of the UFC 272 preliminary card, and for each of them this is an ideal opportunity to express themselves: Umar will beat a veteran with a good track record in the cage, and Brian will beat an opponent without a loss, and even with a big name. Despite the fact that the American is a big underdog, so far, his young counterpart has not faced opposition of such a level, therefore, we can expect a very entertaining confrontation, which will not be easy for one of its participants.
In the history of mixed martial arts, there were many cases when two friends met in a cage and, despite a good attitude towards each other, rolled up excellent fights.

One of the main advantages of the German team is the ability to perform well at home (eight wins and four losses).

Bayern vs CSKA
CSKA began to stumble too often, experiencing serious game difficulties. And this is despite the fact that the team has practically ensured itself getting into the next stage of the competition, but can hardly count on the advantage of the home court. It is for this reason that the teams will enter the floor at the limit of motivation. On February 24, the rivals will clash with each other in a face-to-face confrontation.
