The Lebanese Assassin Hassan Fakhreddine is making his comeback to mixed martial arts at BRAVE CF 48: Arabian Night on March 18th for a chance to raise the Lebanese flag within the BRAVE arena and make his family proud.
Growing up in a family of combat sports practitioners, Hassan’s main goal had always been to build a legacy and make history in combat sports. He dedicated his life towards pursuing one goal: to become a world champion.
Hassan has been practicing combat sports since he was 14 years old, indulging himself in the boxing scene since a young age in San Diego, CA. By the time he turned 23, he entered the world of mixed martial arts and started a journey towards greatness.
As a middleweight contender, fighting in the same division as his older brother, the current Middleweight BRAVE CF Champion Mohammed Fakhreddine, Hassan is committed to making his family proud and coming out on top.
“Mohammad is a role model for many Lebanese fighters and I’m one of them. I look up to him for what he has done in the sport, despite all the hardships he went through he still came up on top with an unbreakable will and heart made of steel,” says Hassan.
Hassan has immense footsteps to follow being the brother of the most famous Arab fighter ever. He will be going against Eslam Mostafa Abdel Manem from Egypt who holds a 2-0 record on a fight card dedicated to showcasing the best rising talent in the middle east.
“I don’t know much about my opponent but I know he’s undefeated and is walking into the cage thinking he will remain undefeated,” says Hassan. “To him I would like to say, not under my watch. I’m walking over anybody that will stand in my way.”
March 18 makes an important night for plenty Arab fighters who lacked the opportunity to prove themselves in mixed martial arts and demonstrate their abilities on a global scale.
“BRAVE CF gave many fighters the opportunity to fight and represent their countries. It gives them the right exposure to change their fighting careers, not just in the MENA region but around the world,” says Hassan. “BRAVE CF will continue to grow at a fast pace consistently and I’m proud and honored to fight under this promotion.”
