Stuart Austin Aims for World Heavyweight Glory: Challenges Hatef Moeil for Oktagon MMA’s Coveted Heavyweight Title

Stuart Austin

Stuart Austin is one of the most respected figures in UK MMA. His 26-fight career to date has seen him compete with some of the best fighters in the world, across promotions such as PFL and Bellator, as well as holding a victory over the current UFC Interim-Heavyweight World Champion, Tom Aspinall.

His home now is with OKTAGON MMA, Europe’s biggest MMA promotion. After two impressive fights since signing with the promotion, including an incredible performance at OKTAGON 52 in Birmingham which saw him submit Adam Palazs, Austin has earned a title shot.

He will head to enemy territory at OKTAGON 57 in Frankfurt on May 4th, as he looks to dethrone German champion, Hatef ‘The Boss’ Moeil.


OKTAGON 57 will take place at Frankfurt’s Festhalle Messe Arena, and will feature former footballer, Christian Eckerlin, as well as OKTAGON MMA’s P4P number 2 and superstar lightweight fighter, Losene Keita. 

Austin (18-8) is looking to claim the coveted title and move to 3-0 as an OKTAGON MMA fighter.

Moeil (15-4) won the Heavyweight strap in November 2023, and the bout against Austin will be his first title defence.

OKTAGON MMA has proven itself on the European MMA scene, with high-level production value combined with competitive and engaging match-making helping them become one of the leading MMA promotions in the world. They recently made the 5-promotion shortlist for MMA promotion of the year.
