MMA Bushido 87 - LIVE from Brussels, Belgium 11.03.2023


FightBox is proud to announce that MMA Bushido, one of Europe’s longest-running mixed martial arts promotions, returns to live action from Brussels, Belgium on Sunday May 3rd starting at 7:00 pm CEST.

MMA Bushido returns to Brussels, Belgium after a successful debut in the city last summer. This all-caged event features a heavyweight main event when Belgium’s Mohamed El Bouchaibi (1 - 0) takes on Turkish fighter Fatih Aktas. El Bouchaibi is known for facing top heavyweight kickboxer Hesdy Gerges in 2020, but recently made the transition to MMA with a successful debut at the last MMA Bushido event in Brussels last summer. Fatih Aktas is a well travelled veteran fighter that will for sure put El Bouchaibi to the test.

Also, in the co-main event of the evening, the undefeated “Bad Boy” Alain Van De Merckt (3 - 0) takes on Miroslav Kucera of the Czech Republic. The 29-year-old Van De Merckt is off to a hot start in his professional career having finished his first three opponents before time and also had an impressive amateur career cumulating an impressive 4 - 1 record. Can he keep this undefeated streak alive against a very tough Miroslav Kucera? The full fight card for the evening can be found below.
