Get ready for the royal return of the "Lazy King" Abdoul Abdouraguimov as he steps back into the PFL arena, set to captivate his home crowd in Paris. The Accor Arena will witness Abdouraguimov (17-1) facing off against the formidable Jack Grant (19-7) on March 7 in the highly anticipated PFL Europe 1 event.

Abdouraguimov, a former two-division ARES FC champion, left an indelible mark in his PFL debut. In a swift and dominant performance, he submitted Brad Wheeler in the first round of the PFL Europe 3 co-main event last September. Now, with renewed energy and determination, Abdouraguimov is gearing up for another spectacular showcase, aiming to dazzle fans once again.

Despite initially expressing intentions to drop down to lightweight, Abdouraguimov has decided to remain in the welterweight division for the upcoming clash against Jack Grant. The decision adds an intriguing element to the bout, as the Lazy King looks to solidify his reign in the 170-pound division.

Grant, a seasoned fighter from England, boasts an impressive record with three victories in his last four bouts. Returning from a more than two-year layoff, Grant showcased his resilience by submitting Ahmad Labban at BRAVE FC 80 in December. His only recent loss came against the rising UFC welterweight contender Ian Machado Garry in June 2021.

As the stage is set for PFL Europe 1, the Accor Arena will witness the clash of titans between Abdoul Abdouraguimov and Jack Grant. Brace yourselves for a night of electrifying MMA action as the Lazy King aims to add another chapter to his royal legacy.
