Prestigious Progress Wrestling company will combine forces with UAE's WrestleFest DXB for "Sons & Daughters of the Desert" in Dubai on December 10. 

It is the first event for Progress Wrestling in Dubai, and the promotion's titles will be on the line.

In addition, the event will see the first-ever Progress Women's World title match.

Progress management said in a statement: “Throughout this year, we have built up a very strong relationship with WrestleFest DXB in Dubai, their leading wrestling promotion, entirely independent and owned and managed by a Dubai national, Mohammad Al Shehhi, who as Shaheen is their Dubai World Wrestling champion, and became the first Emirati to wrestle overseas."

The statement added: “Moe has held a number of events this year, including their “Equal Measures” show and they have featured a number of wrestlers who have performed at PROGRESS and they became the first show to headline with women wrestlers in Dubai. We have had overwhelmingly positive feedback from all of the talent that we have spoken to who have recently performed in the region and we saw an opportunity to be a part of this long-term change."
