Event description


HEXAGONE MMA 10 is headlined by Gregory Bouchelaghem (France) AKA Greg MMA vs Gianluca Locicero (Italy). Greg MMA is a founding figure of MMA in France and celebrated influencer on YouTube. Last competing between 2003 and 2006, when MMA was still banned in France, the legend now returns after a 20-year hiatus. His opponent Gianluca Locicero is also a veteran, renowned for bringing a fight. He is known for competing in Calcio Storico, the historic combat, soccer game traditional to Florence.


The co-main event is a title match between Samantha Jean François  (Reunion) and Laura Balin (Argentina). Jean-François is defending the HEXAGONE MMA strawweight title for a second time, after successfully fending off Brazil’s Andressa Araujo in the final seconds with a submission at HEXAGONE 7.


The United Kingdom’s Walter ‘The Sniper’ Gahadza  is returning from a comeback loss for the HEXAGONE MMA Welterweight title at HXMMA 7. With 19 wins and 8 losses across a 12-year MMA career, the welterweight is a deliverer of first-round finishes. He will be looking to utilise his devastating potential to recover at HXMMA 10 against Soufiene Oudina (Algeria).
