Lebanese MMA Fighter Set To Make History

Lebanese MMA Fighter Has The Opportunity To Make History Next Month
Brave CF | @bravemmaf

Lebanese professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Mohammad “The Latest” Fakhreddine is set for a potentially historic match-up.

In less than a month, Fakhreddine will go head to head against Algerian fighter Mohammed Said Maalem with the aim of becoming the first fighter to simultaneously hold 2 championships in the history of the Brave Combat Federation (Brave CF).

The 36-year-old Lebanese martial artist currently holds the Brave CF Middleweight World Championship, which he won last year when he defeated the Brazilian former champion, Daniel Pereira.

He will fight Maalem (“L’Ambiance”) for the Light Heavyweight World Championship on April 1st in Bahrain.

“The Latest,” who has competed in 3 different weight classes, is one of the most prominent fighters in Brave CF, which is the largest MMA promotion in the Middle East and one of the fastest-growing MMA promotions in the world.

He has 14 wins under his belt and 4 losses on record to date. It’s noteworthy that he was one of the few who fought in the KHK World Championship — a special, single-night, openweight tournament, also organized by Brave CF.

His opponent currently has 11 wins and 3 losses and boasts a 6-win winning streak, including 2 at Brave CF.

Will “The Latest” attain double-champ status, or will “L’Ambiance” become Light Heavyweight World Champion?
