Recently set for the 15th of December is the fight between Mohammad Yahya vs Ashley Griffiths at the Bellator/BAMMA collaboration mixed martial arts events taking place in New Castle, England, which promises to be one of the biggest MMA events in the UK for this year.
For the United Arab Emirates fighter, Mohammad Yahya, this is perhaps the highest profile fight of his career thus far, competing at a promotion of this level against a well-decorated opponent. Holding a professional record of 4-1, Yahya was one of the top frequent fighters in the famous Arab promotion of Desert Force, having finished most of his fights via KO, TKO or submission. He knows that a fight, especially a win, in a promotion of this caliber is the key he needs to unlock the gateway to reaching the next level in his mixed martial arts career.
Standing across from him is the local English fighter, Ashley Griffiths. With a record of 4-5, Griffiths is looking to get back on track to winning ways, and a fight in such a promotion offers him absolutely the perfect opportunity to do so. Fighting in front of his home country and crowd against a foreigner, Griffiths will have an extra reason and motivation to emerge as the bout winner over his next tough opponent.
Mohammad Yahya vs Ashley Griffiths will take place at Bellaror/BAMMA in one of the promising cards of the year, featuring the like of mixed martial arts veterans such as Michael ‘Mayday’ McDonald and Valerie ‘Trouble’ Létourneau in a night of guaranteed non-stop action.
