Multiple people with knowledge of the matchup confirmed it to MMA Fighting on Tuesday.
Currently riding a two-fight winning streak with a 4-1 resume in his past five fights, Soriano will look to continue his momentum when he competes in March. Most recently, he has been competing in CES MMA as well as Cage Fury Fighting Championships after last competing in the UFC back in 2015.
As for Lahat, he’s making his first return to action in nearly three years after his last fight took place in Bellator back in 2018. On that night, he picked up a win over Brian Moore, which brought him to a 4-2 record overall with Bellator. But now, he’ll venture out to a new promotional home for his next fight.
Soriano and Lahat are expected to meet as part of the Warriors UAE 18 card, which also features a bantamweight title fight between Xavier Alaoui and Vinicius de Oliveira.
