Palazzo Versace Dubai


Matrix Fight Night, a leader of MMA Events in India, founded by brother and sister, Tiger Shroff and Krishna Shroff, supported by parents Ayesha and Jackie Shroff, once again sets its sights on the UAE. This sporting dynasty will bring the sixth MFN to Dubai, with official partner Palazzo Versace Dubai hosting the event on Friday 24th September 2021.

In less than three years since its inception, MFN has produced 5 mega shows in India and Dubai, marching onwards and upwards, despite recent global events threatening to halt their success. MFN has continuously shown up and given Indian mixed martial arts its place on the world stage. MFN 6 is set to be a stacked fight card, with solid fights in the cage.

Monther Darwish, Managing Director of Palazzo Versace Dubai, says “We are thrilled to be the official partner and host venue of the sixth Matrix Fight Night. Dubai is a city that is constantly growing, innovating, and surprising in the sporting arena and MFN6 is set to be an unforgettable night of action and adrenaline. Palazzo Versace Dubai is beyond proud to provide the stage, upon which this event will come to life.”

MFN crushed it with its last show MFN5 in Dubai in December 2020, when the show was attended by a captivated Dubai and Bollywood VIP audience.

“Mixed Martial Arts is from where I derived my strength and focus to reach where I am today. I am both happy & proud that in such a short span of time, we will be back with our 6th event in Dubai, which has seen some of the best MMA competitions in the cage. With MFN 5 we set a new benchmark for ourselves and with MFN 6 we are ready to beat that” says an elated Tiger, while talking about his passion project.

Krishna further adds, “Watching Tiger grow up, talking about MMA, it got me naturally affiliated with the sport without realizing it. Together, we hope that our MFN dream will motivate many out there to strengthen both their bodies and minds, be it a man or a woman. Our plans may seem small but we think for the long road and sooner or later we will achieve what we have set out to do with MFN since its inception”.

“Dubai I’ve said again and again is my favourite city in the world. I am super excited that we are back in Dubai for MFN6” says Ayesha Shroff, the backbone of MFN.
Alan Fenandes, Director Operations at MFN informs, "Our 6th event is as good a landmark as our first event was. Our passion will never change towards any event we put up. We are here to stay and change the whole way MMA is seen. MFN has changed the way the sport is presented, not just in India, but now in a city we all love – Dubai. We are here to offer respect and reward to all MMA Athletes that compete inside the MFN cage. A personal and special thank you to Dubai Sports Council for being super supportive and kind to our events here in Dubai. We greatly value their immense support for MFN.”

Speaking of the fights Fernandes adds, “Another highlight of MFN 6 is an exciting women’s bout featuring Puja Tomar vs Jojo Rajakumari. This female fight is a testament to women empowerment that has built up over the years in India via MFN, clearly sending signals that women are very capable of fighting back, whenever the need arises. In another first we will be introducing our first International Fighter to the MFN Cage —- in a classic showdown between MFN’s own undefeated star Anshul Jubli will be taking on the Afghan sensation- Farhad Hazratzada.

With so much hype and adrenaline around MFN 6, Tiger and Krishna exclaim “We are super excited to see the fights take place on the 24th of September 2021 at our favourite venue, Palazzo Versace Dubai. We are excited to get back to this world-class property and now, our hospitality partner. It only gets better with each event at Palazzo. We are working on some crazy ideas with the Palazzo Versace team as well to ensure that each event gets better and better!”
