Hexagone MMA 7: UK start time, how to watch, Full card

On Saturday night, Aymard Guih and Walter Gahadza will go toe-to-toe in the main event of a stacked card at Hexagone MMA 7.

In a beautiful setting at the Futoroscope Arena in Poitiers, France, the two MMA icons will put it all on the line in pursuit of the promotion’s vacant welterweight championship belt.

With making history on his mind, Guih will set foot in the cage, knowing he has the distinct advantage of having already experienced what it’s like to bask in the warm glow of becoming a champion. The reigning middleweight King is coming down in weight, in the hope of becoming a two-division Hexagone title-holder.

Born in the Ivory Coast, he moved to France as a child and attributes the change in location for helping him become the man he is today.

As a youngster, he gravitated to Hip-Hop, showing natural flare on the dance floor. However, despite his reservations about violence, a path in MMA presented itself, and he couldn’t turn it down.

Guih has fought around the world, showcasing his lightning hands and dangerous submission game on stages as big as Bellator and Cage Warriors. But it wasn’t until 2022 that he solidified his legacy.

In the most significant moment of his life, he collided with Gael Grimaud at Hexagone MMA 3 for the middleweight title.

After a breathtaking war of attrition, the referee lifted his hand, making over a decade of hard work worthwhile.

Unsurprisingly, this is a feeling he wants to replicate. But it won’t be easy, as his opponent has his eyes set firmly on winning himself.
