Upstart French MMA promotion Hexagone MMA is throwing its weight behind a double women’s main event for their first overseas event in Dubai.

Hexagone MMA 4 will feature French-Tunisian bantamweight Mona Ftouhi (4-2-0) taking on French opponent Samantha Jean-François (5-6-0), 35, for the strawweight 52kg championship.


The co-main event will feature Marie Loiseau (3-3-0), 42 of France who trains out of RNKFight Paris, against Greek kickboxer Eleni Mytillnaki (2-2-0) in a bantamweight 61kg championship bout.


“Hexagone MMA aims not only to develop MMA in France and in Europe, but also to transmit the values inherent to Martial Arts: respect, surpassing oneself, self-sacrifice, among others, confide the creators of the league,” founder Jerome Pourrut said in a press release. “Our other challenge is also to propose quality female competitions, so that female fighters have equal opportunities as male fighters. Hexagone MMA will continue to be a trailblazer in 2023.”
