Seef District, Bahrain – Mohammed Fakhreddine is arguably the most popular Middle Eastern Mixed Martial Artist to grace the sport and certainly one of the biggest stars in MMA. Back in October of last year, Fakhreddine’s career came full circle as he earned his first world title at age 36, marking the pinnacle of a victorious career. But “The Latest” is far from done.
After knocking out Daniel Gaúcho at BRAVE CF 41, Fakhreddine now looks to maintain another title, this one much more subjective than the belt he now has strapped around his waist: the most lethal fighter at BRAVE Combat Federation.
With a staggering number of 11 knockouts in his professional career, and an 86% finish ratio, Fakhreddine has one of the deadliest hands in MMA and the courage to take on whatever challenge comes his way. And it doesn’t even have to be from his own division.
After almost making history at the KHK World Championship, as he went to the final of the one-night tournament, he was presented with the chance to become the BRAVE CF Middleweight world champion.
After winning his maiden world title, Fakhreddine said immediately that he was ready for his first defense. But now the Lebanese superstar is eyeing an even bigger prize: the two-weight world champion tag.
The only man to have four knockouts in BRAVE Combat Federation has been calling for a fight against top Light Heavyweight contender Mohammed Said Maalem, and sees becoming the promotion’s first double champion as a fair reward in case he’s not able to put his 84kg world title on the line.
It doesn’t matter in which division, it seems that is only a matter of time until BRAVE CF fans around the world see Mohammed Fakhreddine once again inside the cage and that means only one thing: lethal performances and entertainment are about to begin.
