Peter Barrett

Peter Barrett is known as “Slippery Pete” inside the cage and this 33-year-old fighter came from Plymouth, Massachusetts in the USA. He stands at five-foot-nine and this featherweight polishes his skills at the Sityodong Boston fight team. Barrett has a professional fighting record of 11-3 with seven of his victories coming from knockouts. This fight against Zalal will be his first match in the UFC but before that, he earned most of his victories at Cage Titans FC. He got the attention of the UFC when he competed in Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2019. There he earned a victory over Sang Hoon Yoo after three grueling rounds of MMA in which he earned the nod of all the judges.

Youssef Zalal

Youssef Zalal is a very young and upcoming 23-year-old fighter who is known in the cage as “The Moroccan Devil”. He hails from Englewood, Colorado in the USA and this five-foot-ten featherweight trains at the Factory X fight stable. Zalal now possesses a professional MMA record of 9-2 with five wins earned by tapping out opponents through submissions. He has been given his first chance to fight in the UFC in February 2020 and since then he both won the two fights given to him by the organization. His last match happened just this June 2020 when he was put inside the cage with Jordan Griffin in UFC on ESPN 12. The match lasted in a full three rounds but the judges all favored Zalal to win.
