UFC Hamburg Announcement: Marc Diakiese vs Nasrat Haqparast

A UFC Lightweight bout has been officially announced with the exciting English prospect and Heavy Duty fighter Marc Diakiese facing off against the hometown fighter Nasrat Haqparast at UFC Hamburg on 22nd July 2018.

The always exciting and always confident Englishman, Marc Diakiese will be squaring off against another very young fighter in Nasrat Haqparast who has had his last 2 scheduled bouts in the UFC cancelled due to injuries.

American Top Team’s Diakiese is 12-2 (3-2 UFC) and will be looking to drive his career forward with a win over Haqparast. With 6 wins via KO and 5 wins by decision, Diakiese uses a mixture of MMA-based fundamentals to accompany some extremely flashy kicks along with legitimate one-punch KO power.

Nasrat Haqparast is 8-2 (0-1 UFC) after dropping a short-notice decision loss to Marcin Held who has since been cut from the UFC. Haqparast is fighting in his hometown in Hamburg and will likely have the majority of the crowd right behind him. The King’s MMA fighter will also be hungry to avenge that loss and finally get in the cage after 2 cancelled bouts.

Diakiese will be very much in enemy territory here and knowing his type of personality, he will thrive on this.
