The Road to UFC 5: Abu Dhabi competition resumed this weekend in Abu Dhabi in conjunction with UFC 280, with athletes from four weight classes competing for UFC contracts. In addition, each card featured a featured fight, for a total of five fights in each event. Road to UFC 5 (followed immediately by Road to UFC 6) took place on Sunday, October 23, 2022, with the first semifinal action in the flyweight, bantamweight, featherweight, and lightweight classes.

A marquee featherweight bout was also set for Road to UFC 5. In that match, Japan’s Keisuke Sasu faced China’s Ba Lajin. Sasu had been defeated earlier in the competition by Yi Zha, but he would have a second chance to impress UFC officials on Sunday.

The “Road to UFC” semi-final rounds will take place the day after UFC 280. These four tournaments are intended to identify Asian talent and will feature boxers from China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, India, and Indonesia.

The preliminary rounds began in June with 32 participants, and this event will choose the two finalists in each of the four divisions. Toshiomi Kazama had already earned a free spot in the bantamweight finals the day before when his opponent Min Woo Kim failed to make weight.

The Road to UFC 5 event will take place on October 23, 2022 at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The event begins at 7 a.m. ET for Episode 5 of Road to UFC, followed by Episode 6 at 9 a.m. ET. and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. The complete results can be found below.
