South Florida will be well represented during Bellator 250. Three fighters, two from American Top Team and one from Sanford MMA, are on the card.
“The Sleek Sheik” Sabah Homasi (14-8) fights “Vicious” Bobby Voelker (33-13) during Bellator 250 on Thursday live on CBS Sports Network from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Homasi, 31, was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey. His family moved to Dearborn, Michigan, and he played football and wrestled for Dearborn High School. His father owned a pizzeria.
Homasi later joined nearby Cooper’s Gym before making his way to South Florida to train at American Top Team in Coconut Creek.
Homasi spent time with UFC. He is on a three-match win streak in Bellator, beating Curtis Millender in his most recent battle at Bellator 243.
