Lightweight, Mehdi Ben Lakhdhar (5-0-1)
Lakhdhar hasn’t fought since December of 2020. He had injuries and COVID that have combined to cause a few canceled fights.
If Lakhdhar was to remain active he’d probably be fighting on this UFC France card coming up. Lakhdhar is a Muay Thai fighter with all-around skills on the feet. He’s good at picking his shots, flipping the jab, and firing uppercuts with just a nice flow to his output.
His takedown defense does need some improvement but has already shown some, developing rather quickly.
