Sabah Homasi, a former welterweight contender for the UFC, is getting ready to take on Brennan Ward at Bellator 290 on February 4, 2023. With a win over Ward, he would move up to No. 5 in the Bellator welterweight rankings, while he is now ranked No. 8.
Homasi has been working out with the American Top Team, where top-tier UFC fighters like Dustin Poirier and Jorge Masvidal call home, since 2008. The American participated in the UFC three times between 2016 and 2018.
Sabah Homasi’s brief time with the UFC, however, was boring because he dropped all three of his fights by KO/TKO. ‘The Sleek Sheikh’ re-signed with Bellator in 2019 in an effort to revive his career, and he has since won five of his previous seven fights there. Going into the bout with Brennan Ward, he is also on a two-fight winning streak.
Sabah Homasi discussed routinely working out with fighters like Dustin Poirier in an exclusive interview with Giancarlo Aulino of Sportskeeda MMA.
Dustin is a constant competitor. You see, we push each other. Just having him as a friend and teammate in my corner is wonderful.
Homasi explained Dustin Poirier’s charitable work and altruistic dedication to bettering people’s lives through The Good Fight Foundation, saying:
“He is unquestionably inspirational. I adore what he does for his charity and other projects. With such qualities, how can you not love them? Just continuously assists others, which I find remarkable.
For his charitable efforts and honourable attitude outside of the ring, Dustin Poirier is well-respected in the mixed martial arts (MMA) community. He is also one of the most intriguing athletes currently on the UFC roster.

Regarding his upcoming opponent, Sabah Homasi said in the previously mentioned exclusive interview with Sporstkeeda MMA that he has his sights set on beating Ward this weekend:
“I like to concentrate on the person standing in front of me. I try not to plan too far ahead. My energy is being sapped from the individual in front of me the moment my thoughts turn to the next adversary.”
