UFC signs U.K. fighter Abdul Mohamed for UFC 93

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has further added to its growing roster of European talent by inking a deal with top U.K. lightweight Abdul Mohamed (16-6-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

Sources close to Mohamed told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the signing on Monday, though terms of the contract were not undisclosed.

Mohamed is expected to make his debut at UFC 93, which takes place Jan. 17 in Dublin, Ireland.

No opponent has been determined.

Mohamed, a five year-veteran of the sport, has fought the entirety of his career in the U.K. A member of the expanding Wolfslair gym, he will join stablemates Michael Bisping, Paul Kelly, Quinton Jackson and Cheick Kongo on the UFC roster.

Mohamed has been a longtime target of the UFC, and he had been a rumored participant during past UFC shows in the U.K.

Mohamed is a powerhouse grappler known for overwhelming his opponents with wrestling and dominant top position control. He picked up a unanimous-decision victory over Ross Pearson at Cage Gladiators 9 this past weekend. The victory is believed to have secured the UFC deal, sources close to the fighter said.

During his career, Mohamed has competed against the likes of former Cage Rage champion and EliteXC fighter Paul Daley, whom he fought to a draw, and grappling sensation Vitor Ribeiro, to whom he lost via submission. He holds victories over the likes of Jean Silva, Ross Pointon and Robbie Olivier.

Isn't this the guy that cut Ross Pointon the same way Belfort did to Eastman?

They both weighed in at 170

Ross Pointon 170.0 vs. Abdul Mohammed 170.0

He's has got pretty decent wrestling skills. A good 'middle of the road' acquisition for the UFC.

He's from my town, Middlesbrough, I know his brother, and a few of my friends know him, seen him in the gym at times and he's a decent guy, if he trains full time he can be a handfull, I would liken him to Manny Gamburyan in a way, hes short stocky, really strong, hopefully he will do well and put Middlesbrough on the map
