Taylor Labellos (30), a lightweight MMA fighter and RMC Sport advisor, will be on the roster for the upcoming UFC Paris on September 3 at the Accor Arena in Bercy. The German will oppose Khaled Taha.
The programming of the much-anticipated UFC Fight Night in Paris is a little more subtle. According to information from RMC Sport, Taylor Labellos (30) will be on the ticket for a meeting scheduled for September 3 at the Accord Arena in Percy. The French fighter, advisor to RMC Sport, will oppose German Khaled Taha in the heavyweight category. “Double Impact” still has five straight wins, including a technical knockout against Angolan Demart Pena, on April 16 at Ares FC 5. But he hasn’t fought in the UFC since 2016. It was already September 3.
“It’s the first UFC in Paris, we really want to be there”
Last May, the French fighter expressed optimism about his presence at the Accor Arena by showing his impatience “to gain a foothold in the UFC”. “It’s a first from the UFC in Paris, we really want to be there, and he stated it on the RMC Fighter Club podcast. It’s something we dreamed of and finally came true. In my case, mathematically speaking, I think I did the job. It’s a good major card.”
Taylor Labellos will be in the spotlight at the first UFC evening in France. Main Battle (Main Event) His compatriot Cyril Jean will battle Australia’s Tai Toivasa in the heavyweight category. Top seed Bon Jamin will be trying to get back on the winning ways after failing to win the title in January against champion Francis Ngannou.
Manon Fiero, another French superstar in the discipline, will also be fast. She will face American Catelyn Chukajian after the withdrawal of Brazilian Jessica Andrade. The latter was initially replaced by… the Chookagian, who had given up for personal reasons before resuming discussions to conduct the fight. Another Frenchman will be on the bill this evening, Nassruddin Imafov, who will take on Australian middleweight Joaquin Buckley. New Zealander Robert Whitaker and Italian Marvin Vittori will compete in the same category. This was also the first official battle.
This has been done well since then. The event, which will follow during an exceptional evening on RMC Sport 1, is sparking a huge public enthusiasm. The box office was stormed when it opened on June 24. It is expected that the atmosphere will be boiling and the French fighters will be able to take full advantage of it.
