Abdoul Abdouraguimov and Jarrah Al-Selawe will rematch for the Brave CF welterweight championship Friday in Abu Dhabi, and the heat between the two is pretty evident.

After both Abdouraguimov and Al-Selawe made weight on Thursday, they went faced off for one last staredown in the middle of the stage in an Abu Dhabi mall. Abdouraguimov, the current 175-pound champion, wanted his opponent to take a step back, but Al-Selawe pushed his face instead, starting a melee.

Abdouraguimov (10-0, 1 no-contest) took the belt away from Al-Selawe (13-3) via split decision back in April, and the promotion opted to book an immediate rematch as the main event of the return of Brave 27 to Abu Dhabi.

It’s not the first time they’ve gotten physical during a face-off, though.
