Part of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s latest recruiting efforts in Europe, Mustafa Al-Turk has agreed to a four-fight contract with the UFC.
He is likely to debut on Dec. 27 at UFC 92 in Las Vegas. Vacating the Cage Rage British heavyweight title, current speculation puts Al-Turk in a possible match-up with American Kickboxing Academy fighter Cain Velazquez for his Octagon debut.
The addition of Al-Turk, a veteran of the London Shootfighters team, adds another solid talent to the UFC’s growing roster of heavyweights.
In addition to defeating top Cage Rage fighters James McSweeney and Gary Turner, Al-Turk also holds victories over UFC and Pride veteran Mark Kerr and Pride veteran Henry Miller.
